The Sydney Conservatorium of Music will be introducing a brand new seminar series that shines the spotlight on entering the music industry as either musician or aspiring media member. Hosted by Jake Stone (Bluejuice), the seminar series brings together some of Australia’s brightest musical talents for some one-of-a-kind conversations that will explore the challenges of breaking into the mainstream realm, the development and progression of digital music and the harsher side of the music industry standards that are always changing.
Themes included in the Sydney Con’s Bachelor of Music degree for 2018 will be covered, making this series unmissable for any prospective students and interested folk to be attending. The seminars themselves are completely free and will be running monthly at the Sydney Con itself.
