There was a time when Detroit echoed with the harmonies of Diana Ross and the Supremes and swayed with the rhythm of Ray Charles.
So it only seems fitting MoTown is the studio of choice for an international music school's first US location.
The Detroit Institute of Music Education is set to hold a press conference Thursday ahead of their launch at Dan Gilbert owned 1265 Griswold.
Speaking at the event will be DIME founders Kevin Nixon, Sarah Clayman and Bruce Dickinson, music industry engineers who are embarking on their third music education venture.
The press conference will be held at 2:30 p.m. at 1520 Woodward Avenue, temporary home of the schools' admission offices and performance space.
