About the performance

Music Business Educators' Meetup

A large part of Music Biz’s dedication to fostering growth in the music business lies in supporting the future industry leaders on their path to building fruitful careers. Join us for the Music Business Educators’ Meetup — a time for professors, faculty members, and other higher-education enthusiasts to review the past semester, present new trends that can benefit the classroom, and discuss the future of music business education.

Tuesday, 9:20 – 10:20 AM: Students, Mental Health, and Working in the Music Industry

Rejection. Depression. Self-Doubt. Fear of Failure. Pressure to Succeed. Every year, a new group of young people embark on their pursuit of becoming a songwriter, a recording artist, or working in the music industry. While most university Music Business programs offer solid curriculum and an academic foundation about the business of the industry, is there more that should be done to help prepare students for the emotional and mental challenges of being in the industry? This panel of professionals will discuss real mental health issues in the music industry, and offer insights for educators who must balance both teaching and encouraging students’ aspirations with providing a realistic view to the student about what it takes to succeed in the music business.
