This free event, running 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. at Wolf Performance Hall, will give attendees an opportunity to see and hear firsthand how to build a career in the music industry. Attendees will have the chance to listen to panel discussions, key note presentations, interact one-on-one in the mentor lounge and discuss careers with industry professionals during breakout sessions. The day wouldn’t be complete without a few musical performances. Speakers will highlight career paths including; Song writing, Production, Music Synchronization, Publishing, Royalties, Radio Tracking, Music Promotion, Venue Managing, Social Media Specialist, Public Relations and Industry Development and Incubation. The event will benefit anyone looking for insight into a career within the music industry.
Live music alone contributes over 20,000 jobs to the Ontario economy annually. Music is revered as one of three economic advantages for the province of Ontario and best of all, the music industry is seeing significant growth and partnerships with other creative industries. With 875 students studying music programs at post-secondary schools across London, Music Career Day aims to support the outlying components of the music business and highlight the opportunities available.
