9:15 – 9:20 AM       James Donio Welcome

9:20 – 10:20 AM    Students, Mental Health, and Working in the Music Industry
Rejection. Depression. Self-Doubt. Fear of Failure. Pressure to Succeed. Every year, a new group of young people embark on their pursuit of becoming a songwriter, a recording artist, or working in the music industry. While most university Music Business programs offer solid curriculum and an academic foundation about the business of the industry, is there more that should be done to help prepare students for the emotional and mental challenges of being in the industry? This panel of professionals will discuss real mental health issues in the music industry, and offer insights for educators who must balance both teaching and encouraging students’ aspirations with providing a realistic view to the student about what it takes to succeed in the music business.

Gloria Green, Middle Tennessee State University

Join us as our panel of industry executives from across the commerce, content and creative communities discuss what they are looking for from recent college graduates. What are the areas of the business that university music industry programs should focus on? Where are the opportunities in the business? How can graduates be best prepared for the broad base of opportunities in today's music industry?  The panel will comment on examples of current industry program curricula, and share their opinions on areas that should be covered in a current music business program.
