Leadership Music will begin accepting applications from established entertainment industry leaders for the Class of 2015 beginning March 1. Applications will be accepted throughout the month of March.
The eight-month, Nashville-based, learning program begins in September and is designed to expose participants to every phase of the music industry and to be the link connecting people with the issues. Participants are required to attend an orientation, all-day sessions once a month on Fridays, plus two-day opening and closing retreats during the program. One-time tuition for the program is $1,000.
Application forms, program dates, policies and FAQ’s are available online March 1st at leadershipmusic.org/apply/.
According to Debbie Schwartz Linn, executive director of the 25-year-old organization, “The Class of 2014 began with 43 members who were chosen from among several hundred applicants. Our goal is to select a passionate, balanced and diversified class, who are, individually and collectively, the best and brightest leaders in their field and represent all segments of the music industry. Each year, the selection committee has the challenge of selecting from so many more qualified applicants than we have available slots to fill. I guess you would say that’s a good problem to have, but it is often frustrating for those who have applied multiple times. We strongly encourage applicants to keep applying if not selected. It’s truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and well worth the effort.”
Applications must be submitted via the on-line process no later than March 31, 2014.
