Music Production, BA

production The business side of music...

The music production major teaches you the business end and technical side of music – you’ll learn to deal with recordings, manage projects, compose music, and complete a finished product.

Music production is a liberal arts program that is classroom and project-driven from composition to finished product execution. This blending of technology and art in an entrepreneurial context will create for you an audio portfolio that will prepare you well for the music business industry. Malone is part of an exciting program with the CCCU that allows our students to study in Nashville at the Contemporary Music Center while earning credit, where you both learn the business  - and do it! 

"Malone is becoming a hub for great musicians - you've certainly sent us some of the best talent in the last couple of years. Congratulations on your good work there and I'm thrilled that you and I can team up like this to take young talent and move it along. Keep up the good work and rock on Malone!"

Warren Pettit, Director
The Contemporary Music Center
