Music Industry General Knowledge – Part 1 – The How, When, Why & What of the Music Industry.
The purpose of this course is to help musicians, aspiring artist managers or potential booking agents to better understand (or at least give you a glimpse into) some of the key areas of the music industry, particularly the primary music industries as well as touching on some of the secondary music industries.

This course will take you from one side of the music biz to the other and hopefully give you a wider appreciation of the many, many music businesses that encompass the industry and how they all connect.
