The Music Industry Certificate is a six month course co-developed by Keith Harris, the manager of Stevie Wonder and taught by instructors with years of insider music industry experience. It provides a fantastic grounding in all aspects of the industry including new media, digital distribution, how the music radio scene works and live event management. It is aimed at students who wish to pursue a career in the music industry. Starting with an overview of the business as a whole, the course then takes you through potential areas for employment, how to take music to radio and finally a practical module where, overseen by your instructor, you organise a live event and plan a digital music release - like the group of music business students in the video above. All designed to get you started in the industry, even while you are on your course. We also host regular guest masterclasses from leading figures in the music industry such as Nick Halkes (XL Recordings). Watch the series here.
