Learning Music Entrepreneurship by Doing: How to Create Experiential Opportunities in an Academic Setting

This session is part of 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. 

An integral part of teaching music entrepreneurship involves helping students learn through experiential opportunities. Entrepreneurship, just like music, is best learned through practice and experience. In order to successfully implement hands-on learning opportunities, a few questions arise:

  1. How can we effectively create these experiences for our students outside of the classroom ?
  2. How can we build student engagement and participation in non-required events?

Students are very busy with their required academic coursework and other activities. Capturing their attention and getting them involved in non-required events can be a challenge.

Using the model that Fabiana Claure created and implemented at the University of North Texas College of Music’s Career Development and Entrepreneurship in Music Program — recognized among the Top 15 Best Music Business Schools by Billboard Magazine (2017) — this presentation will provide an overview of the various types of experiential learning initiatives that can be launched in an academic setting. It will also describe common challenges and potential solutions to take into consideration while launching these initiatives.
