About Music 286

Music 286 is required in the Commercial Music major and is a recommended elective for all music majors. In the vernacular of the day, we teach, "Don't do the music business; be a music business." The course stresses that all musicians need a business plan, and is taught in a manner relevant for all musicians. The semester's work includes exposure to a variety of guest lectures, and creation of personal semester projects, including research, which take the form of a personal business plan. Retention of material is measured with quizzes and a final exam.
