Tuning In!

Routes to a Career in the Music Sector

"Tuning In! Routes to a Career in the Music Sector" at mdw – University for Music and Performing Arts Vienna invites graduates and senior students of European HMEI to join a training programme that supports them in the development of a personal career road map.

The training programme “Tuning In! Routes to a Career in the Music Sector” is a cooperation of mdw – University for Music and Performing Arts Vienna and the Austrian music information center mica and is co-funded by the European Union. It aims to equip graduates and senior students of European HMEI with the skills and knowledge needed to develop and grow their careers as musicians in a rapidly changing professional environment.

Tuning In! provides ten musicians in the early stages of their careers with essential resources such as strategic networking and self-reflection, business and management skills, and both self-marketing and self-presentation methods. During three in-person teaching modules, the participants acquire basic entrepreneurial skills, develop their personal career road maps, and start implementing these in individual steps. The workshops are accompanied by an e-learning platform and complemented by digital hangouts for sharing knowledge and experience. An international mentoring programme offers participants to discuss their visions and plans with an individually chosen mentor, an internationally experienced musician or other type of protagonist in the music sector.

Lecturers include international as well as Vienna-based experts such as internationally acclaimed actor and trainer Michaela Rosen, Sally-Anne Gross, who is both a music industry practitioner and an academic, and the expert on European music markets Peter Tschmuck. The programme also offers the possibility of extensive networking with internationally experienced musicians and participants establish and foster their own transnational networks.

In-person teaching modules will take place in November 2019 and January and February 2020. Participation is free of charge and the participants' travel expenses and accomodation are covered by the project.
