The music business is by far is one of the world’s most diverse, challenging and exciting industries to be involved with. From the humble singer/songwriter looking for the next open mic night to the A&R executive searching for the next big thing, music is much more than just a hobby or a means of getting by. For those passionate about their craft, music is a way of life. However, keeping up with an industry that is battling with ever-changing consumers, business models, sounds and technology can be difficult.
As a leading provider of music industry education, The Academy of Contemporary Music (ACM) prepares students for life-long careers inside the music and creative industries. Over the last 20 years, our graduates have gone on to shape those industries into what they are today. We are thus committed to being at the forefront of ongoing change and development in order to prepare the next generation of musicians, artists, songwriters, producers and music business executives for similar success.
As part of this ongoing commitment, the ACM Industry Link department – our students’ connection into the music industry – has joined forces with our sector’s top figureheads to bring you exclusive insights and the very latest commentary on the issues central to the future of the Music and Creative industries, globally.
We hope you’ll find each of our contributor commentaries to be informative, thought provoking and useful.
