If you’re at all inclined to consider a career in the music industry, you should take a look at some of the music and engineering schools that are geared toward helping you get started in the entertainment business.

As I’ve mentioned in a previous post, getting a degree in music is certainly not a necessity to forward yourself up the career ladder in music and entertainment, but what a good school can do for you is help you snag good internships. And, that is not something your typical career counselor at your typical 4 year college will have the first clue about. Trust me, I was one!

This is a question I have received quite frequently over the years. And, despite the fact that I graduated with a degree in music with a specialization in business (read: music business degree) from Southern Illinois University, I still say that getting a music business degree is NOT a prerequisite to a career in the music industry. And I say this not only as a veteran of the music business, but also as a former academic advisor to hundreds, if not thousands of students, at the University of Minnesota.
