Event description

Description

What?
21CM Institute for Music Entrepreneurship equips music faculty, graduate students, and eminent artists to develop and teach the skills and mindset to succeed in the professional world. Participants will learn how to foster the creative energies of the entrepreneur, empower students to launch projects of their own invention, and engage communities in which they live.

Driven by the shared belief that education is a lifelong process of learning how to make the world a better place, 21CM Institute for Music Entrepreneurship was launched out of a sense of urgency to better prepare the next generation of arts leaders; a conviction that the arts must play a central role in a society that is more open and hopeful; a deep belief in the value of experiential learning; and a commitment to the notion that career success in music is defined in three parts: a life of means - the ability to care for those whom you love most; a life of meaning - to do good work that creates lasting impact; and the chance to give back, with special attention to those at the margins of our communities.

Leveraging the framework of The 21CM Introduction to Music Entrepreneurship textbook, participants will learn from Mark Rabideau and some of the field’s leading scholars and practitioners of music entrepreneurship.

Why?
The world of music is changing and so must the ways in which we prepare musicians for this world. Traditional career opportunities - orchestras, opera houses, and academic institutions - are shrinking. Simultaneously, today’s emerging artists optimistically seek careers rich in meaning, and are exploring the profession in ways as unique as their own talents and passions.

Moreover, schools of music across the country recognize the need to prepare their students to think and act entrepreneurially, however, many do not have the internal resources or personnel to do so. 21CM Institute for Music Entrepreneurship addresses this need.
