Realize Record Label Institute Opens Registration

Fri, Aug, 29 2008

As a student of the program you will become part of the staff at an active indie label and be involved in and learn what it takes to become an A&R executive or a scout. Experience signing artists though the choosing of songs in pre-production, to production coordinating for the studio. See and be a part of real decision making at the label and how it influences the product. Follow the product through graphic design, marketing and production. Work on marketing and promotion of product through online outlets, print, and radio promotions. Work with development of street teams, work one on one with signed artists on their cd release parties, bookings and touring. You will work side by side with music industry professionals and signed artists.

If you want to work within the music business, own your own record label, learn how to take control of your music career or just familiarize yourself with the industry but don’t want to spend four year and hundreds of thousands of dollars, this is the program for you.
