The Best Way to Learn Music Business and Management

For a university degree program, you could be spending four years in a classroom as a music business major. And while it’s important for music business students to have a good understanding of copyrights, contracts, agreements, and legal issues, they should also have an understanding of the industry as a whole.

If you’re thinking of joining the industry in any capacity, you might consider applying to a music school of business but top music business schools in Los Angeles or New York are either too far away or too expensive. This is where Recording Connection can help.

Our Music Business School is the Best Way to Learn

There are any number of careers you can pursue in music, even if your musical ability is next to nil. Many of those in other walks of life often come to music looking for a change of pace or to fulfill their dreams of becoming part of the music industry. Lawyers, accountants, and other business professionals find their talents translate rather well.

As an agent, music publisher, manager, or other “non-creative,” having a business background will help with the myriad of tasks you’re responsible for. Of course, anyone that’s spent any time working in the industry knows there are creative solutions to almost any issue with marketing, promotion, distribution, and other aspects of the business.

So who better to learn the business side of things than someone who’s working in the industry today? Recording Connection mentors understand how to keep a business up and running, how to ensure all agreements are locked in, and how to protect the intellectual property of their clients.
