Berkleemusic, the online extension school of Berklee College of Music, has announced the release of a new online music business course for their winter term. Concert Touring, authored by industry veterans John Czajkowski (Bruce Springsteen, Shania Twain, the Strokes, Oasis) and Jeff Dorenfeld (associate professor of Music Business/Management at Berklee and former personal manager of Boston) provides working musicians, aspiring artist managers, booking agents, publicists, concert promoters and entrepreneurs with a detailed overview of the complete touring and music merchandising process, from start to finish.
"It's essential for anyone with a career interest in the music business to have a thorough understanding of how the concert touring industry operates," says Debbie Cavalier, Dean of Continuing Education at Berkleemusic. "This course covers the essentials: assembling a management team, different types of industry deals, alternative streams of income, and what happens specifically on a show day. Concert Touring complements our existing online music business curriculum perfectly."
Concert Touring is enrolling now for the winter term, which begins on January 8th.
