Taught By: Ben Allison

Section: A

CRN: 11052

Credits: 2

The music industry is rapidly evolving in new and unexpected ways. Technological advances, shifts in business practices, updates to copyright law, changes in consumer trends and expectations – all continue at a breakneck pace, greatly influencing how people create, sell and listen to music. How can the next generation of professional musicians chart a career path and maintain their footing on this constantly changing terrain? Through project-based, collaborative work in small groups, you will conceptualize, propose and finally start work projects focused on creation, dissemination, performance and/or promotion of music. Through this process, you’ll begin to define your career vision, learn to articulate your goals and develop the skills necessary to identify and respond to emerging opportunities. Lastly, but perhaps most importantly, you’ll be building your own community of like-minded artist / creators, the next generation of music makers and industry leaders. This course fulfills the Music Business requirement for students majoring in Jazz and Contemporary Music.
