Paving a serious career in the music industry..

Academy of Music North East held a 2 day business mentoring event where students could meet and gain knowledge from industry heavy weights. MUSIC IS SERIOUS BUSINESS comprised of interviews, Q&A sessions and live performances from guests and students alike. To open proceedings BRUCE FINDLAY the man who masterminded the meteoric rise of SIMPLE MINDS talked about his days running a record shop and the various labels and record deals he has overseen. Following that PAUL SMITH dropped in to chat to students about what it is like to be in one of the North East’s most successful bands MAXIMO PARK. Finally KEITH ARMSTRONG who has been instrumental in bringing us JAKE BUGG, PREFAB SPROUT and THE LIGHTHOUSE FAMILY really listened to the students questions about how to make it in today’s industry. All our students have taken on board their sagely advice and with a follow up masterclass by the Performing Rights Society some are hopefully on their way to paving a serious career in the music industry.
