Students Take the Lead with PB’s Newly Launched Music Industry Discussion Group

In the run-up to the start of our brand new Music Industry Management Degree, we’ve launched a new Music Industry Discussion Group for PB Students to talk about all things industry. Our new discussion group is the perfect platform for producers, DJs, aspiring managers and more to explore the ins and outs of the music business with those who have lived and breathed it. Whilst discussing current trends in the musical space, those who attend will be able to voice their opinions, debate hot, current topics, and also ask any questions they have about the industry. This can include anything from streaming, royalties and management to running record labels, mental health awareness and more and will give all who attend a fresh perspective of the future of the creative industries. If you’d like to learn the ropes of the industry on a more permanent basis, our BA (Hons) Music Industry Management Degree is the course for you.

The group’s first sessions was headed up by one of the newest editions to Point Blank’s renowned team of lecturers, Music Industry Degree Course Leader, Lee Erinmez. With a wealth of experience as a professional musician, signing with BMG Records and performing as the bassist of UK rock outfit Snuff, as well as working as a music business educator, Lee brings a lifetime of expertise to the discussion group’s table. During this weeks session, Lee and the students engaged in an eye-opening discourse on the different ways artists can use social media to promote themselves and their music using both conventional and unconventional methods. In addition to this, the group explored the world of artist royalties and revenue and how these differ depending on the kind of artist you are/manage. Each session will be headed up by an internal or external specialist and focus on the most current and pressing issues in the realm of music with students encouraged to bring their topics of interest to discuss.
