In the heart of downtown Denver lies Metropolitan State University of Denver, a college that serves over 20,000 students. The school’s partnership with the Detroit Institute of Music Education (DIME) is starting to make waves – at least that’s what Billboard Magazine will tell you.
Billboard Magazine named the DIME Group a top music business school. Its list was created to display the top schools that give students the best chance to gain the best education they can for their future music careers. DIME Denver is focused on creating a strong musical foundation for students so that they can have long careers in the music industry. The program teaches students the ins and outs of the music industry while students work to improve their musical talent.
DIME Denver, partnered with Metropolitan State University of Denver, gives students the chance to earn their Bachelor of Arts Degrees in Music Industry studies, Commercial Songwriting and Commercial Music Performance in guitar, bass, drums and vocals. Classes involved with DIME Denver include music theory, domestic music market, techniques and improvisation, live performance workshop and others classes.
Students can finish the program in four years, and they have the chance to perform in bands, promote their own shows, develop their voice, arrange songs and meet others in the music industry.
DIME Detroit and DIME online is currently celebrating five years of pairing contemporary music and higher education. Recently, a sound and vision major was launched and a new facility will be open in the Santa Fe Art District at 800 Kalamath St.
An example of the work DIME Denver does can be reflected on at the Fall Semester Student Showcase that took place last December. The showcase was free to the public, and it allowed students and student bands to display their work. Among the performers at the Fall Semester Student Showcase were Ben Eberle, Jailyn Richard, Zane Deluccie, Chris Sparks, Tonguebyte, Dust of the Decade, Tracee Hill, Arianna Booker, Sugar Weather, Samantha Jo and more.
