After nearly two years of delay, construction on our new campus facility in Historic South Central began. DPT Construction, with the guidance of Stayner Architects, will complete our design-forward, purpose-built new home, which will include 6 unique classrooms, including the Ella Fitzgerald Keyboard Lab and Resource Center, a state-of-the-art multimedia lab, audio and video control room, and a large program and performance space!

The campus will foster equal access to music and multimedia workforce development training, after-school and weekend classes in instrumental music, music technology, multimedia production, songwriting and more will be offered to the community free of charge.

We are committed to authentic engagement with our new community, and will work hard to ensure that our new home becomes a valued resource and nexus for creativity, connection, and discovery of the unlimited potential that lies within us all.
