Leicester gets ready to welcome international music industry giants

The British Centre for Music and Enterprise (BCME) is hosting six innovative sessions for aspiring musicians, industry professionals and educators as part of its Make Music Make Money course.

The individual sessions will be led by renowned experts in the field of music including: Greg Castell (Managing Director of Mercury Records and Emili Sande’s manager); Tim Bulleyment (A&R Director, MCA and Hollywood Records); Ste Allen (Dealmaker Label); DJ SS (top DJ and co-founder at Formation Records); Brad Kavanagh (signed to Warner Music and Nickelodeon television star) and more high profile speakers to be announced shortly.

Chief Executive Officer of BCME Ajay Naik, said: “These sessions are a fantastic opportunity for anyone who wishes to progress their career in the global music industry. Enrolled students will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to ask accomplished professionals how to get ahead in the industry through interactive Q&A events.”

In addition to the exclusive Q&A sessions, there will be four specific sessions run by BCME tutors giving students a 360-degree tour of how the music industry works and how to make a sustainable living within it.

The sessions will be kick-starting on May 6 and will run through to June 17. The cost per session is £20 with concessions available. Delegates who book for the entire course will receive a bespoke action plan and resources, whilst educators will have access to a ‘Continued Professional Development’ plan and teaching resources.

Ajay added: “We have deliberately kept the price low to ensure it is affordable for anyone who has an interest in the music industry. While we hope to bring more such courses to the city as part of our annual calendar, it will truly be a first-of-its-kind for Leicester.”
