DETROIT BASED MUSIC ACADEMY
UNDERGROUND MUSIC ACADEMY
With great joy we are excited to launch our online and in person curriculum with 2K and Studio Express. We remain committed to innovative learning and opportunities for the next generation of artists. This semester we decided to start small to navigate our growing team and develop practices for sustainability. We look forward to building and sharing courses and w3rkshops available in 2024.
In addition to continuing construction at our headquarters at 2990 East Grand Blvd. With great joy we are onboarding four new staff members and giving scholarships to 12 domestic and international students for our Music Licensing Course.

The concept for the Underground Music Academy is one that had been bubbling in the minds of the team of community leaders in the North End of Detroit for years.
Borne from their shared experiences informally mentoring up-and-coming Detroit artists, as well as touring the world as professional musicians and multidisciplinary visionaries, the team saw the potential of creating something local in Detroit that could connect to their global community.
The idea became reality in 2015, when the organization acquired a historic building that once served as the headquarters for the NAACP in Detroit’s North End.
The Underground Music Academy mission to build the future leaders of electronic music through education and mentorship remains, but we’re thinking bigger.
Our dream is to create a more inclusive global dance music community that’s more aware of its roots. We will start online, reaching students from around the world, until it's safe to offer a best-in-class educational experience in-person in Detroit..
If you believe in our mission of helping build the next generation of electronic music artists & bringing the originality, quality, & diversity back to the forefront, we hope you will consider contributing.
