NYU’s outstanding program, Future Music Moguls, is a twelve-week workshop designed to introduce 16 talented high school freshmen, sophomores, and juniors to the basics of the music industry. The free program is held each spring at The Clive Davis Institute every Saturday, February through May.
The workshop focuses its recruitment efforts on underrepresented groups, particularly students from lower socio-economic backgrounds in the New York tri-state area (see: inner-city youth). Students who participate in the program will learn about the creative process behind the writing and recording of hit songs, and will be exposed to the behind-the-scenes business decisions that delivers music to audiences around the world. Students will also learn about music entrepreneurship with an emphasis on today’s issues and trends throughout the music industry.
The deadline to apply for the program is Nov. 15. Potential candidates who’d like to participate can find out more information on NYU’s website. Good luck!
