We’re passing along this great opportunity from Yamaha, a how-to on starting your a music business program in your high school.
Whether you’re looking to increase recruitment, retain (or re-engage) the students you have, or help your students connect with the modern music industry, introducing a music business program at the high school level sets your program up to succeed. Music-loving students have so many options to make a career out of music beyond performance: marketing, artist relations, management, music publishing and entertainment law.
To help you start your own music business program, Yamaha is sponsoring the virtual Summer Institute for High School Music Business Education through the University of Texas at San Antonio, July 6-8, 2021.
Why should you attend?
1. Not only can a music business program enhance your current music program, it also serves as an attractive option to bring new students into the fold – possibly students who might otherwise never have been part of a more traditional music coursework.
2. A music business program can grow your overall enrollment numbers and student engagement.
3. Music business curriculum is adaptable to any demographic profile and can lend itself to any school, program or district.
4. Music business is cross-curricular and addresses skillsets taught in the STEAM pathway.
5. Finally, remote learning is probably here to stay — at least in part. Music business works on a digital platform just as easily as in-person. – it is interactive and frees the teacher to design lessons that can be assimilated through a variety of mediums.
