The Music Technology and Composition Program at New Mexico Highlands University is different. It’s a four year Bachelor of Arts program that will prepare you for a rewarding profession.

The Music Program at NMHU

is distinctive from scores of music departments, in the fact that we invite all students to attend, regardless of their level of prior experience in music. Our philosophy of open enrollment provides a distinctive opportunity to an underserved population of students who love music and embrace the opportunity to develop their potential as musicians through our innovative, yet grounded curriculum.

We have a familial atmosphere

which supports and nurtures music students from a variety of backgrounds. Although of diverse origins, our students share a common interest of becoming the finest musicians possible, and I am proud to have contributed to such a positive and supportive educational environment.

The Music Technology and Composition program

is a forward thinking Bachelor of Arts program that will leave you well prepared to compose, record, mix and master music. Access all the gear and software you need. Develop your skills. Play and record the music you want to make.

If there is a single achievement that I find most gratifying

it is that our curriculum design makes our Music Program accessible to students regardless of their musical background. No music auditions required to enter the Music Program at NMHU. Instead, students are required to complete seven credit hours of “audition courses” during their freshman year, making our program available to any student, regardless of their background in music. I believe that we are providing opportunities to students in unique and creative ways.

This is the Audio School for Musicians.
