“After graduation, I immediately got a pro gig playing bass for a funk rock band called Atomic Walrus,” says CCM associate degree holder, Marco Bohler. “But I still concentrate most on composing my own music, and I have a solo album in the works,” adds Marco. The enthusiastic CCM alumnus believes he would not have been able to achieve his dreams if it were not for this prestigious school, based in the world’s entertainment capital, just minutes from the Hollywood music scene. “It doesn’t matter where you’re from or what your background is, if you want to become a musician, this school has everything that will make that possible. All you need is heart and hard work,” he concludes.
