Titled ‘The Origins of Music Business,’ the course serves as the first of six modules for the program created in association with Yellowbrick, which helps facilitate learning experiences alongside top universities and brands.
‘The Origins of Music Business’ aims to help participants identify the historical beginnings of a specific musical style and become familiar with the genres it influences. Topics covered within the module include the growth of American music, the role of executives in the industry, the evolution of record production and the digital revolution.
The six-course, 20-hour plus certificate program will showcase all aspects of careers in the industry and will give participants the foundation to carve out their own successful path in today’s music world. Throughout the modules, experts in the industry such as Kerry Gordy, Stevie Mackey, Ryan Leslie and Kareem “Biggs” Burke — as well as staffers at Billboard and professors at NYU — will provide students with key insights, offering stories from personal experiences.
