BREAKING A CAREER ARTIST IN THE MUSIC BUSINESS NOW
Jampol, Sturges and Beer Fool UCLA and It's Students Into Another Class This Summer
Want to understand how to develop, promote, market and ultimately break an artist in the music business? Well you can either read Billboard or attend UCLA’s Breaking a Career Artist in the Music Business Now: Record Promotion, Marketing, Sales, Distribution, and Publicity.

Now while the name is quite fancy and will probably impress your friends, don’t fool yourself. The class is taught by three losers Jeffrey Jampol, Tom Sturges and HITS own Idiot In Chief Lenny Beer, who prove the old adage: If you can’t do - teach. That’s right kids; the bozos that brought you last Winter’s The Music Business Now are back with their latest series on the music biz. And to assure those who might have taken the last class, Jampol will never stop talking.

If your goal is to join a failing industry, market to a generation that believes music is free and/or get investigated by Eliot Spitzer, then this is the place for you. Well, either here or in typewriter manufacturing. Either way this course guarantees you’ll learn the ins-and-outs of the music business. And when it comes to out, you can’t beat Jampol. 

From advertising to distribution, from Mediabase to sales, from digital to traditional and from payola to promotion (just kidding Senator) the C.S. Lewis-like characters A Jew, A Gentile and A Gerbil will enlighten and entertain you. Oh yeah, you get 3 credits, too.

Guest speakers and panelists will include industry heavyweights and icons ranging from Anthony, Bartels, Urie, Azoff, Slater, Harcourt, Gould, Schnur, Guerinot, Kwatinetz, Renzer and a cast of hundreds. That is, of course, until they figure out they are not being paid. 

The class takes place at UCLA, 39 Haines Hall, Wednesdays from 7-10pm and runs from July 6 - August 31 for a total of 9 torture sessions, uh, meetings.

If this sounds like fun, or you merely have no life, hate the one you have, work at HITS and are being made to go, or just want to want to hear Lenny Beer utter the immortal words: “No matter how bad the music biz is, with no end in sight, there are still 10 records in the Top 10,” click here for full details.
