It's always important to hear from professionals who chose a path similar to the one you want to follow. How did they end up where they are today? What hurdles did they encounter along their adventures? What advice can they offer you as you set out on the career of your dreams?

The overall meetup will take place from 11AM to 1PM framing the conversation around the following ideas: Working in the music business is as popular a goal as ever with new graduates, even with the challenges, contraction and shifting revenue streams the business is experiencing. Do you have what it takes and is course selection alone enough to give you what you need to be successful in your pursuit? During this meet up, we'll discuss what shifts universities are exploring in their music programs, real life paths successful executives have followed, and the importance of internships. Finally, we'll play drop the needle and test your knowledge, as well as enact some role playing scenarios to see if you are a student of the music business.
