The Business of Music – a National Training Strategy for Business Skills in the Music Industry

by NationTalk on April 27, 2008445 Views

The Cultural Human Resources Council (CHRC) is pleased to announce the release of:

The Business of Music, a National Training Strategy for Business Skills in the Music Industry. This document will serve as a road map for training in the rapidly evolving music industry as it confronts the challenges and reaps the benefits of globalization and new technology.Over the past two years, CHRC has consulted widely with music industry representatives in regional meetings across the country and in two national roundtables, to determine the training gaps that have to be addressed; and with educators in public and private institutions to identify current training offerings. http://www.culturalhrc.ca/minisites/Music_and_Sound_Recording/e/01-06-01.htm

The Business of Music provides a synthesis of the findings of these consultations; and a series of best practices and recommendations to help the industry meet its training needs. The recommendations are grouped around five themes: Professional Development, Formal Education, Internships, Regional Access and Delivery, and Infrastructure and Funding. One of the key recommendations is the creation of a National Training Advisory Council (NTAC) for the Music Industry: “to encourage, facilitate and oversee the implementation of the recommendations of the National Training Strategy”. It will be made up of representatives of music industry associations, provincial music industry associations (MIAs), educational institutions, and government departments responsible for policy and funding.

The Business of Music can be found on CHRC’s [ http:/: http://www.culturalhrc.ca/minisites/Music_and_Sound_Recording/e/01-06-01.htmwww.culturalhrc.ca/minisites/Music_and_Sound_Recording/e/01-06-01.htm ]e of vision and forward thinking in the area of cultural human resources development. CHRC brings together representatives of arts disciplines and cultural industries in the cultural sector to address the training and career development needs of cultural workers – artists, creators, technical staff, managers and all others engaged professionally in the sector, including the self-employed.
