Next year, WaterBear–The College of Music will become the first college to offer a degree in Electronic Music and Business.
WaterBear College is located in Brighton, England and specializes in musical studies. To offer some electronic music-specific knowledge to students, the college has partnered with Mark Knight's venerated Toolroom Records.
The program is unique in that it helps students become better producers and then teaches them the ins and outs of the business side of the electronic music industry. The course will be offered with a two-year, online-only option and a three-year, on-campus option.
Enrollees will receive feedback from professional A&R representatives, gain opportunities to perform in real shows, and participate in small class sizes in an effort to augment the quality of education. Students will also be able to book studio time with access to the school's high-end production equipment.
