USSCM "Prodigy to Professional" P2P Accelerated Residential Program
Success in the Music Industry depends primarily on experience and recommendations from professional colleagues. Also, in many of the most financially rewarding areas of the industry, a premium valuation is put on youth. For these and many other reasons outlined elsewhere in this catalog, traditional schools, which require four years or more of study, are often not appropriate and their drop-out rates are very high. USSCM efficient programs already meet this need, however some students wish to progress more rapidly or they need help establishing the discipline required of professionals.
USSCM is proud to announce its Accelerated Residential Program for a very small number of talented students who wish to progress as rapidly as possible through their College studies. Precocious students may finish 6 microsemesters in a single year and complete the minimum Diploma Program in a year and a half; the equivalent of four years' materials at other schools. Highly-focused students may accomplish the equivalent of an undergraduate and graduate Diploma Program in less time than it takes students at ordinary schools to finish their undergraduate.
Here's what P2P student Rui Zhong has to say about his studies: "I never thought I'd be learning so quickly and thoroughly."
