Students & Faculty Speak Out, Career Prospects and Concerns
Thursday, October 22, 2020 — 9:00 am to 10:00 am PDT
College music students moderated this roundtable discussion with current and recently graduated students about opportunities, challenges and ways to develop a road map for having a career in music. Part II of this highly engaging discussion put college music professors in the hot seat where students asked the burning questions they've always wanted to, but were afraid to ask in class.
