Music Management exploring Miami
Music Management Study Trip to the University of Miami
Students and Alumni of the Master’s Course Music Management (Danube-University Krems) merged european know how in Music Business with the “musical place to be” in the US.

At the Frost School of Music (University of Miami), as one of the most comprehensive music units in American higher education, our students visited different lectures at the Department for Music Media and Industry.
Along with subjects like International Music Publishing, Recording Industry Royalties, Tour Management and Production, International Music Licensing and Entertainment Industry Contracts, etc. our “short time exchange students” were also instructed by key players in the American Music market on topics like Entrepreneurship for Musicians, Artist Development and Contemporary Lyric Writing. They could join the fervent Symphony-Orchestra-, Laptop-Ensemble- and Singer-Songwriter-Rehearsals aswell as visiting the prominently staffed Music Industry and Jazz-Forums.

At concerts and workshops within the Festival of Miami the students got to know celebrities like the worldfamous musicians and singer-songwriters Bruce Hornsby (Multi-Grammy winner), Jackson Browne and Livingston Taylor.

Also the Frost School of Music’s faculty couldn’t be any more top-class. Amongst them Rey Sanchez (Guitarist, Music Producer, Chair of Music Media & Industry), Serona Elton (Former Vice President Mechanical licensing EMI Recorded Music, North America, consultant Sony Music Entertainment), John Redmond (Former VP Universal Music Publishing Canada, former VP PolyGram Music Publishing Canada, founder Publish This, Inc.), Chris Palmer (Managing Partner Take 6, Former VP Progressive Music, Warner Bros. Records), Raúl Vazquez (Former Head of IFPI Latin America, former President of Sony Mexico and Brazil, Artist Manager –Ricardo Arjona, Consulter).

This nine-day study trip gave insights to North- and Latin American Music Business and demanded a critical examination of different international Music Industries.
