    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it gives you the rundown on every major job that is in the music industry, like what they do, who they interact with, and so on. It will give you perspective on whether or not you want to do this for the rest of your life.

    Course highlights:

    I learned what a manager does for a band, as well as what a band's team needs to have in order to succeed in the music business. I have learned the basics on copyright laws, and now understand how everyone in the music business gets paid.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be sure to read Plumb's articles beforehand so that way you can follow along with what he is talking about. I would also say to come in awake and fully hydrated, or you will end up having a problem with falling asleep.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Plumb is a great man with great ideas. I didn't enjoy the subject as much as I originally thought I would but it was overall entertaining and it opened my eyes to the music industry.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how songs are made. And I learned how complicated music contracts are. I learned that networking is one of the most important things that a person can do to help them succeed in life.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention and do the midterm study guide. If you take the notes that he gives in class and actually read the book for certain chapters, you will easily succeed. 10/10 would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Eric Griffin is a terrific professor who understands the ins and outs of the music industry. As a band manager and transactional lawyer operating throughout the country for many years, he has personal experience of what are the "need to know" aspects of the music industry, then expertly synthesizes them to fit an "intro" level course. The materials are an easy read but still have the ability to go in depth for those who want the extra knowledge. The knowledge is very useful for any music student. The class is perfect for collaboration and getting to know your peers.The course is just a great experience overall.

    Course highlights:

    I not only gained a thorough understanding of the basic functions that drive the music industry, this course also had a decent section dedicated to how an artist or startup musician in the class can start on their music journey from a business perspective, and the steps it takes to be a sucessful music business entrepreneur and artist. Plus, the required book is constantly updated to reflect the quick changes of the music industry, and it has everything you need to succeed in the class and beyond.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Listen carefully and ask any questions you think of! I asked my professor all kinds of weird and applied questions that lead to some really great connections which helped me remember the different specifics of the music business. Take really good notes, and read the book as much as possible. Plus, Eric is a very helpful and awesome professor, ask him any questions and he will make the effort to explain them to you.
