The eight-month Nashville-based program is designed to expose participants to every phase of the music industry, as well as foster communication and cooperation among industry leaders. Program days are designed for deep dive learning into various parts of the music industry, while exploring the challenges.
“Leadership Music is so much more than an educational program. Building community and relationships within each class is just as important,” said LM Executive Director, Debbie Schwartz Linn. “Leadership Music is the only music program of its kind to offer access and insight from virtually every segment of the industry.”
She added, “Although we are headquartered in Nashville, we welcome music industry leaders from all over the world to apply. The selection committee places a great deal of emphasis on diversity, whether it’s the segment of the industry, ethnicity, genre, background or geography.”
Class participants first attend an orientation and alumni welcome reception in September, then Opening Retreat in October 2020, followed by six all-day sessions (Songwriting/Publishing, Artist, Live Music, Production, Record Label, Media), one day a month, ending in May 2021 with graduation at Closing Retreat. Application forms, program dates, policies and FAQs are available at leadershipmusic.org/apply/.
Applications must be submitted via the on-line process no later than midnight, February 29, 2020.
Leadership Music was founded in 1989 and aims to promote teamwork, camaraderie and dialogue among industry leaders.
