Music Business School


Music Business School

Established by music industry expert and educator Steve Melhuish, Music Business School offers a straightforward modular Music Business course, taught over 12 consecutive weeks at Tileyard Studios, London.

Each module of the course gives a clear overview of a particular topic and draws on the expertise of leading industry practitioners and experts who are closely associated with Music Business School and Tileyard Studios.

Modules can be taken individually, but the greatest value comes from enrolling in the entire course, which lays out a clear path for building and operating a music based business.

If you want to get into artist management, record label development, music publishing or new media technology entrepreneurship, or if you want to gain a clearer understanding of the complex world of music rights – or if you’re an artist who wants a better view on the industry – Music Business School is a great place to start.
