Free Online Music Business Event + Decatur Area Event
We have organized two online, free event sessions of ‘Why Music Business?’ The first does not need to be attended to attend the other – they are just alternate time options.
Why Music Business? Why a problem solving mindset? Why a liberal arts education? Why Millikin University?
Music Business isn’t ‘business business,’ it’s a combination of the poetry of the spreadsheet, the high wire act of logistics, the science of crowd density (and how to create one!), and much more. Martin has said his business path and skills are often way more creative than making beats behind the drum kit and recording console or in the studio. Music business is making things happen that shouldn’t that others couldn’t! Triumph in the face of, sometimes, overwhelming adversity! That’s why this transferable skill set and mindset is so useful in any discipline. Martin has a different attitude towards non-traditional learners, having been one himself, who now has 3 books, a masters degree, and a museum. He understands that not everyone arrives with great test scores behind them – but we all have a positive future in front of us, and we have 2-4 years to set them on their paths at Millikin.
Martin will take a look at the creative problem solving skill set and how music business helps you pivot, turn on a dime, and prepare for the jobs of the future we don’t even know exist yet! Remember that there is no requirement to play an instrument to enroll in Millikin’s Music Business, BS.
Brad Galvin of Galvin Audio at Kaeuper Hall
Millikin University, School of Music
This coming Monday, Nov. 7th, our guest will be Millikin commercial music alum Brad Galvin. The doors to Kaeuper Hall in the School of Music will open at 7:00 for attendance taking, and the seminar will start at 7:30. Brad will be joining us fresh off the road from the Ringo Star tour, though he’s currently working right this minute with Bruce Springsteen. Quick refresher: Brad is a live sound monitor mixer and wireless network specialist who started his own company (Galvin Audio) and has been touring the world with all sorts of big names (though to this day his bread and butter gig is with the Lumineers, for whom he has worked for more than a decade if memory serves.) Brad is truly a great human being, and will of course stick around after the seminar lets out to do a meet and greet.
Martin Atkins will also be down from Chicago for the event before he leaves for his UK tour next week, and would be happy to chat with anyone who attends.
