Get Your Musical Foot in the Door
Music industry experts MBT are launching a new course for young musicians in Sheffield to set up their own business. Launching in September and taking place at Sheffield’s Steelworks recording studios, My Music: My Business is a new initiative working in partnership with Rotherham College of Arts and Technology. Taking place at Sheffield Steelworks, who have recorded artists such as Take That, Bryan Adams and The Spice Girls, participants will get a real feel for the music industry on this 36 week course.
It will be led by John Hart, director at MBT, who has extensive experience of the music industry as musicians, managers, promoters and marketing consultants.
“The music industry has undergone seismic change in recent years and access to market is now easier than ever for aspiring artists through a wide range of internet provision. Our intensive one-year course is run by the industry for the industry and tailor-made to give young people the essential e-commerce and business skills they need to promote and sell their product – their music, their performance, their creativity.”
There are fifteen places available for 18 year olds through Rotherham College’s further education funding. Nineteen-year-olds and above may also apply but may be asked to contribute to course fees.
So if you’re a young musician in Sheffield who is tired of practicing in your mate’s garage and fancies starting to really make a dent in your music creativity you can apply online! The website is
