    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Kellogg is highly knowledgeable. He worked for Jive when the Backstreet Boys were discovered and has produced Brian McKnight. Realest lessons ever in this class.

    Course highlights:

    Everything taught you can use in real time and in real-life situations. It was a little while ago so I don't remember specifics, but one lesson was making a presskit, another was making a list of producers you'd want to work with, etc. You could easily save all of your assignments and use them in your personal musical journey.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it! It's a requirement, but it's not a drag of a course by any means. Definitely try to attend the class chats as often as you can. Kellogg's advice is extremely valuable and he often brings guests on with him that are all industry officials.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is designed for music major to learn about the music industry and how the business side of music works. I would recommend this class for anyone pursuing a career in music. Whether you are a producer, artist, or have another role in the industry, this class will educate you on the essentials of how to be successful in the music industry. Also, knowing what to expect could save you time and money in the future and prevent you from getting taken advantage of for your time and skills.

    Course highlights:

    The most important thing I learned from this class is that in order to be successful you need to work with others. Having a team will allow you to focus on what you are good at while allowing others to help you reach your full potential by assisting in other aspects. There is a lot that goes on in pursuing a music career. The more people you have on your team the more you can grow. Professor Kellogg refers to it as going from a D.I.Y. (Do It Yourself) model to D.I.O. (Do It Ourselves).

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advice you to watch the videos, read the materials, and attend the chat. It truly is information that will help you in the long run.
