Class Planning, Entrepreneurship in Music and the Arts


  1. Jim,
    Love the idea of this course! Bravo to you. I do a “What Makes it Great” series for Washington Performing Arts Society 4 times a year and some programs use Curtis students as performers which requires rehearsal in Philadelphia. If there’s ever anything I can do to help out what you’re trying to accomplish, let me know. The next generation (including my son–a composer at Swarthmore!) must have a completely new entrepreneurial approach to things and they need all the help they can get. Good for you!
    All best,

  2. Though the fact is they’re already converted! Help them with the how-to, but the basic premise is already there. The musicians of the new generation ARE ENTREPRENEURS.

  3. Jim, Congratulations on running this course. This is a challenging topic and I believe that many arts colleges universities etc need to look at the area of how do you develop new audiences to music. As a former professional flautist who is now in the arts management coaching world I believe that musicians have so much to offer in ways of attracting new young vibrant audiences, making music accessible and also looking at ways to leverage the world of classical music in particular. I look forward to hearing more of your development of this course. From this side of the world have found that the challenge can be with the musicians themselves to think out of the square. And ah ha this comes from an older muse…
    Go well Jim , Sally

    I am really looking forward to taking this course! Thanks for directing the class to this blog in your last email, as these prospective questions have given me a good idea of what to expect and whet my appetite for the potential discussions to come. See you in a week!

    Best, Phil
