Home of world music at WPI
Surely you’re familiar with the excellent music program at WPI. Jazz or classical, vocal or instrumental, it’s a program that would be the envy of many tech schools. (What? Tech schools aren’t known for their arts programs?) But what if you want something a little different? Something a little more international? Then APDE is for you.
