Michael W. Smith (MWS) Center for Commercial Music
The mission of the new Michael W. Smith (MWS) Center for Commercial Music is to train competent, proficient marketplace musicians to serve as commercial music industry practitioners.
There are three primary goals:
- Liberty University School of Music will be recognized as a major center for musical excellence for the music industry and the #1 choice for training and equipping of professionals for the music industry!
- And for LUSOM to penetrate the market and expand the brand at the least possible cost with resources available.
- Liberty University is one of the leading universities in America for digital streaming of education.
Yet the university streams ZERO music. With the establishment of this center, what we have done in education we can now do in music. The idea is that within the next 5 years, every song used on this campus - virtual or residential, for any purpose, will be owned and published by the School of Music!
