This course provides an overview of the music industry, its multiple sectors, the skills and knowledge they require, and the careers they offer. The course touches on all topics in the curriculum going forward, including legal issues, recording and songwriting contracts, publishing, songwriting, copyright and licenses, music for film and TV, distribution, marketing and entrepreneurship; the artist’s team (managers, lawyers, agents, producers); and touring, merchandising and group issues. It is taught from the standpoint of the performer (the incipient small business entrepreneur) as well as from the standpoint of the non-performer (the incipient music industry professional and entrepreneur). Students will see the big picture, the larger “creative economy” of which you are a part, and begin to understand the foundations, economics, functions and methods of the music, art and entertainment industries. Students will appreciate the value of entrepreneurship and the economic value of self-expression, and see the opportunities available to you in the music industry program, on this campus, and in this city. Students will learn about the many kinds of jobs in the creative economy and develop some understanding of the skills, information and knowledge needed to perform them.
