The DMC provides instruction in traditional Ghanaian music, dance and visual art to foreigners through its study abroad programs. The experience is designed to not only provide quality instruction, but an immersive cultural experience where students are integrated into daily life in Medie. Universities, independent groups and individuals also organize other trips (of different durations) throughout the year. The center also serves as an institution for scholarly research in African music and arts.
Each summer the Center offers two three-week sessions where students spend time learning at the DMC and touring the country. Each session usually hosts 8-15 students from around the world and is comprised of two weeks of lessons and one week of excursion trips to major tourist attractions throughout the country. The goal of the summer sessions is to provide individuals the opportunity to study at the DMC in a structured group environment.
