Link to Curriculum

The DMI Mobile Music Lab will enhance student learning by using songwriting, music, and media arts to connect to curriculum competency requirements of the Mississippi Department of Education. Using DMI faculty and students, as well as regional musicians and music industry professionals, the program will provide an opportunity for students to apply and improve their knowledge in multiple disciplines, including language arts, music, math, history, social studies, and science.

Tour the Bus

The DMI Mobile Music Lab is housed in a 26’ customized bus that includes two main spaces, a recording studio and a production room. The production room includes multiple workstations featuring Apple computers and professional audio and video software. We welcome interested teachers and civic leaders to schedule a tour of the bus in their community to develop interest in participating in this exciting interactive program.
