Best Practices in Music Industry Education

David Kopplin
California State Polytechnic University, Pomona


We as educators have an intuitive sense that experiential education works in music industry education, though surprisingly, there is very little data to support our intuition. Using a survey of MEIEA membership, as well as face-to-face interviews with faculty members and administrators at music industry studies programs throughout the United States, the author collected data on music industry programs in 2014 and 2015 in order to determine the “best practices” in music industry education.

Keywords: music industry education, best practices, high-impact practices, experiential education, hands-on learning, learning by doing, internships, real world learning, classroom simulations, student success, music industry, music business
