2020 has arrived with a bang, and with it, New Year’s resolutions and new horizons!
The music and entertainment industry is always high on dream job lists across the country – yet, it’s an area often clouded with mystery and complexity. Many people find themselves asking: 'How do I get into the business?' 'Is it about who you know?' 'Does a musician's talent actually count?!'
The renowned Music Industry Xplained (M.I.X.) course is here to demystify this wonderful business we call show business.
Presented by Hot Press as part of its commitment to bringing through the next generation of music business powerhouses, the course is a unique series of remarkable talks and lectures for those who want to succeed in music, management, media, publicity, promotion, record labels and more.
MIX, a 13-week course taking place on Wednesday evenings in Dublin city centre, comprises a series of lectures by top professionals from from the Irish and international music industries, and also includes a practical, hands-on element where students produce and promote their own gig.
The acclaimed course, now in its 20th year, offers invaluable, first-hand knowledge from industry experts who know all the workings of today’s music business – and is recognised by the music industry at home and abroad
Each year a stellar cast of experts present classes to students of all backgrounds and ages. Previous lectures have included such industry stalwarts as U2 Designer Stephen Averill, producer and Crowded House bassist Nick Seymour, Head of the Irish arm of the world’s biggest record label, Universal Music, as well as a host of musicians, including Julie Feeney and Gemma Hayes.
All MIX graduates are awarded an industry certificate. MIX begins in February 2020 at Sound Training Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin. There are limited places available.
Testimonial from Mark Daly:
My name is Mark Daly, I am a professional singer/songwriter from Cork, Ireland. I have toured all over the world working with American supergroup Operation: Mindcrime which consisted of members of well known bands like AC/DC, Ozzy Osbourne, Whitesnake, Queensryche and more as well as fronting Rock band The Voodoos and also most recently releasing music under my own name.
I attended the Hot Press MIX course a few years back and during the course I learned vital information that has really helped me with my knowledge of today’s music industry.
I would highly recommend the course to any musician, artist manager or anyone looking to learn more about how the music industry works and to make amazing contacts that can really help you in the future.
