Course Details

Taught by industry professionals, this course initially explores many of the different career opportunities in the music industry.

Together, we match these opportunities to your current skills and qualities in whatever area of the music industry interests you most.

We’ll spend time creating your music CV and discuss how to perfect your interview technique. Once we’ve equipped you with the skills to get your dream job, we will also then explore what it’s like to be employed in the music industry.

During your time on the course, you will also have the opportunity to take an in-depth look at various music management roles and create your very own artist development plan.

We will also explore how to establish professional social media presence and build an online identity that fits with your professional goals and highlights your skillset, helping you put your best foot forward as you move towards your music industry career.

Our course is SQA accredited. On successful completion you will achieve an industry recognised SQA award in “Employability” and a SQA certificate in “Music Management”.

What are you waiting for? As this is a FREE course, spaces are very limited, so don’t wait around and miss out.
