Random Monday: The Buzzword, Behind Bars and Big Dogs
- Entrée Vous
Greg Sandow makes a really good argument for music programs at institutions of higher learning to start teaching more classes on entrepreneurship in his Top Ten Changes in Classical Music. See #4:
“Entrepreneurship” — that’s a buzzword at music schools today, as the schools realize that classical music careers are changing, and that musicians (see “Classical music goes online,” above) may need to book their own concerts, and find their own audience. The schools, of course, are learning this in part from their students, who’ve been doing these things on their own.
- Looking back at the Hornmatters archive, Horndog noted many other like-minded opinions on entrepreneurship. See “Followup to Systems View of Music Education.”
- From Recommended Reading: a nice introduction to the Musician’s Way, openly questioning – American students are they lazy?, and David Thomas’ tweets.
- What do the big dogs make?
Is the recent economic slump having an impact on the top tier American orchestra salaries? Drew McManus takes a good look.
- Back and forth
This big dog flute player just can’t seem to catch a break.
