I teach music business at LIPA, which is something that I am very grateful for it and never really imagined I’d be able to do at this point in my career. It was always a goal to be able to share my experience of working within the music industry to those who are aiming for a professional life in music, but I saw this as something that may happen in the future. If this is something that you’ve thought about, quite possibly now is the time.
It is extremely important that the students I work with at LIPA are receiving insight and guidance from active practitioners working in relevant fields in the music industry. If your job enables musicians to work professionally successfully then you may find you have something fantastic to offer those who are so serious about a profession in music that they have chosen to study it.
