With bicoastal learning labs that give students complete access to mixing and sound equipment, dubspot is one of the country's foremost institutions for learning music and media technologies. The school's course list covers everything from DJing to sound design. Class sizes of 10 people or less ensure each student gets plenty of one-on-one instruction, which is fortunate since the instructors have plenty of wisdom to offer. Their ranks include a Grammy-nominated producer and a sound designer for the Oscar-winning animated film Wall-E.

Even when they're not in class, students have access to the lab facilities six days a week. Those unable to attend courses in person at the New York or LA schools can also enroll online, an option which gives them access to instructional videos for up to one year or until their computer gets old enough to move out on its own.

Patrons at Session 73 satiate not only their taste buds but also their eardrums by devouring international tapas in a restaurant and lounge that fuses its dining and bar areas with the thumping beats of live music. The tapas menu and musical menu—the latter of which has featured such bands as Sideways, The Ronald Reagans, and Daddy NoBux—have even been known to draw in celebrities such as Kate Hudson, Will Ferrell, and Jimmy Fallon.

In addition to reverberating with live rock rhythms every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, the venue pulses with tango music on Sunday, salsa music on Monday, and swing music on Tuesday as patrons swivel their hips and waggle their ears on the dance floor. Craft cocktails sporting clever names such as Big Ginger and Dragon Juice keep the movements fluid.

As a native of the Dominican Republic, Claudette Munné loves merengue beats—but as classical pianists, she and her husband Massimiliano Facchini also cherish traditional piano pieces by European composers. To celebrate these dual passions, the pair arranged a series of fresh, merengue takes on old classics, a project that resulted in a sold-out two-piano show at Carnegie Hall and an interview with NBC.

Revamping traditional piano music isn't the couple's only collaboration, however. They also worked together to found Belle Arti Center for the Arts, a music school that caters mainly to children. Their toddler classes focus on training young ears and building a sense of rhythm that moves beyond freestyle clapping. During private lessons, they train students on instruments from the guitar and violin to woodwinds. Their classes follow a semester schedule, with each semester session culminating in a recital for family and friends.
