Eastern European Music Academy is the first educational and networking project aiming to unite the whole region. It is crucial for musicians and their managers, who want to overcome the live-industry crisis by diving into income generation opportunities for the music business in current realities. Besides, it will create a community of like-minded people, who seek to expand their operations to the whole Eastern European region.
Mentors of the Academy will be chosen from the eminent professionals from all over Europe who have experience working with major labels, successfully developing their own music business, or are the first contact to enter international unions and music associations.
Participation in the Academy is free of charge but one has to demonstrate a strong motivation for study, present a short-term plan on how he/she will implement the new knowledge, and be open to collaborate with peers. Fluent English is essential. Students are expected to spend 5-6 hours a week on educational and practical commitments.
