GUADALAJARA, MEXICO, November 18, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- It is a sad fact that institutions of higher learning in many first world countries have lost sight of their reason for existing, to prepare students to succeed and excel after graduation.
The college or university culture in Mexico differs greatly from what is commonly encountered in the U.S. and many European countries. In the Latin culture, higher education (bachelor's and master's programs) are seen as the serious preparatory steps towards a successful career.
The Mexican people are rightly proud of their history and heritage, but we take special pride in our history in education. Mexico is home to the oldest University in North America. Located in Mexico City, the National University of Mexico was founded by Charles V of Spain in 1551.
Moving into the 20th century, Mexican citizens have advanced the sciences in every field.
The Fermatta Music University Center, Latin America's first contemporary music college, is now the largest and most prestigious institution of its kind. With campuses in Mexico City, Guadalajara, Monterrey and Querétaro, the Fermatta Music University Center offers three, four-year Bachelor's Degree programs, in addition to two, two-year Master's Degree programs, all fully accredited by the Secretariat of Public Education in Mexico. They are the Bachelor's in Sound Engineering and Music Production, Contemporary Music Composition and Music Performance. For their part, the Master's programs are Audio and Post-Production Design for Film and Television, and Entertainment Business.
The Fermatta Music University Center has graduated some of the biggest music superstars, who have accumulated awards including more than 80 Grammys, Latin Grammys, Oscars and Cannes Film Festival Awards.
Master Class Series
The Master Class Series program aims to place students in direct contact with professionals in the music and entertainment industry. To achieve this, the university organizes Master Classes that are taught by prominent musicians, engineers, producers and executives of the industry.
Master Class guests include Jack White, Chad Smith, Steve Vai, Matt Sorum, Steve Lukather, Glenn Hughes, Michael Brauer, Michael League, Michael Thompson, Carmine Appice, Pat Martino, John Medeski, Armand Sabal-Lecco, Eddie Kramer, Glenn Hughes, Mike Stern, Meshell Ndegeocello, Nathan East, David Schiffman, Bernard Fowler, Lee Sklar, Simon Phillips, Esperanza Spalding, Kenny Aronoff, Nick Menza and Dave Lombardo, amongst many others.
The Fermatta University Music Center is made up of a hierarchical structure whose purpose is to guarantee the constant updating of the undergraduate and graduate programs and maintain a level of excellence in the training of professionals in the industry. The highest academic body is the National University Council, under the special guidance of Professor Jan Caro DeFan, Associate Professor Jonathan DeFan, Associate Professor Michel Bitar DeFan and Associate Professor Mauricio Lopez.
