- Associate Dean for Outreach and Engagement
We help our students develop individual musician branding and resources to maximize outreach and connection.
Our students obtain internships leading to career connections in a wide variety of music-related fields and also benefit from many opportunities to develop skills for startup projects. Additionally, a wide variety of musicians in the college offers a rich environment for incubation of new ideas and approaches.
Our program includes a large number of resident faculty with vast experience in a variety of musical enterprises. In addition, our students collaborate with alumni active in music performance, promotion, production and other fields. Each year we bring frequent guests with experience in starting new enterprises related to music to campus to engage with our students.
Our students engage in projects in the community that include accounting, contracts, performance rights, venue and artist negotiation, budget planning and a host of other experiences. Students receive in-person help from mentors with experience in launching new enterprises and ideas and bringing them into successful fruition. Key to our program is learning to work in teams and how to negotiate, evaluate talents and match skillsets to needs in building a successful enterprise.
