Music Business 3.0 Panel Discussion @ Full Sail University

I had a great time participating in Full Sail University’s Music Business panel yesterday during Hall of Fame Week. If you missed it, here’s a blurb about it:

“It’s no secret that the music business has gone through some significant changes over the years – in many ways, it’s almost unrecognizable from the “glory days” of the 20th century. That was the main idea driving the Music Business 3.0 panel discussion, but the mood was hardly somber. Instead, the event’s Full Sail faculty speakers – Entertainment Media Publishing & Distribution Course Director Kim Craft, Entertainment Media Publishing & Distribution Associate Course Director Brandon Egerton, Music Business Department Chair Jackie Otero, Entertainment Business Master’s Final Project Course Director Bill Thompson, and Music Merchandising and Retail Promotions Course Director Israel Vasquetelle, drew upon their years of experience in the music industry and gave students a look at the different tools that are available for artists in the 21st century. Topics included the merits of eschewing major labels to go the indie route, digital vs. physical product, the ways in which college radio can still be used to promote artists, and more. Throughout the presentation, the panelists also answered questions from students and gave them their advice.” – courtesy of Full Sail University
