The Frost School of Music lives in the epicenter of the current local and global music explosion. To say that we’re located in one of the world’s most appealing hotspots for international arts and entertainment is an understatement. Miami is home to internationally broadcast Latin music shows like the annual Billboard Latin Music Conference & Awards and hosts epic festivals like Ultra Music Fest, Winter Music Conference, Art Basel Miami, among many others. Not to mention the numerous performing arts centers and concert venues throughout the region including the Adrienne Arsht Center, the Fillmore Miami Beach, and others.

Gigs. Gigs. Gigs.

Frost music students can be found gigging around town on any given day. From trendy spots in Wynwood and the Design District to taverns and clubs in Downtown Miami, South Miami, and Coral Gables. There is never a shortage of performing opportunities in Miami.

    Located in Miami’s Little Haiti neighborhood since 1979, Churchill’s was founded by a British music promoter with the intention of fostering total artistic freedom. Since then it has featured the best punk and rock acts Miami has to offer while also being the best place to catch an international soccer match.

They frequently hire students for internships where they are given an introduction to the live music industry.

Frost students make their first connections in Miami with professionals in the music world and get a sense of how the industry works by interning at top English-and Spanish-language television networks; with major music publishers; recording studios and labels; and video production and post-production houses. Think of Miami as a mecca where music, art, and opportunities are found in every corner of the culturally rich and diverse city that Frost students can call home.
