Studio Musicianship Seminars

IEMMA provides students, regardless of major, opportunities to learn in a real-world, experience-driven environment. Whether students end up being performers in a recording studio, hospital, church, or concert hall, or if they are studio engineers, producers, marketing agents, or record label executives, every one of them must develop the skills to interface with one another.

Examples of these opportunities include:
