From the CMC:
Malone students, KC Carter, John King, and Nate Netti have been spending a semester in Nashville living out their passion in music. They have been spending the semester studying at the Contemporary Music Center (CMC). Netti and King's band, A Minor Bird, has accompanied them, and Carter has been improving his R&B skills. CMC is a semester long program that gives students the opportunity to have real life experience inside the music industry. The hands-on opportunities give students the ability to harness and perfect areas that would be demanded of them in the music industry.
The CMC offers three tracks; the artist track, the business track and the technical track. King and Carter are participating in the artist track where they have been practicing and perfecting different areas of their music and its performance. Netti is participating in the business track where he is learning the tools that are needed to do various tasks on the business side of the music industry. The CMC also offers a technical track that focuses on skills needed to provide the technical necessities for live performances and also the knowledge and experience needed for professional-grade studio recordings.
When asked about his experience so far at the CMC this semester, Netti replied: "The CMC has given us the opportunity to pursue music 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I literally was recording from 3 to 6 a.m. last night. And it was great."
The Contemporary Music Center is one of eleven semester-away study programs created by the CCCU and BestSemester.com. Students can also go to China, Russia, Egypt, Latin America, Oxford, England, Washington, D.C., Uganda, Australia and Hollywood to explore the integration of faith and learning in various disciplines.
