This class was tough.
David Beatty is an extremely skilled and experienced man. He knows how to adapt his knowledge and understanding to be successful in the constantly changing music industry.
Highlights of the course was the business plan project. I learned about copyrights; the flow of work and money through the entire music business; the importance of attorneys reading your contracts; the way record labels function; tools to promote your work; basic skills of understanding what it is you actually want; how to set real, achievable goals; how to do your taxes well; how to get jobs; all the different jobs you can have in the music industry and what those entail.

Advice for students:
Don't procrastinate. Get your work done as soon as you can. Be organized, and don't expect David Beatty to spoon feed you. Get connected with responsible classmates, and work/study with them. You can be incredibly successful if you just apply yourself.
