Curriculum and Advising

Entrepreneurial Musicianship offers a range of courses that help artists articulate the impact they want to make as musicians and build the professional skill to do so.

In addition to our survey course, The Entrepreneurial Musician, we offer focused electives that cover diverse topics such as marketing, communications, financial planning, and legal issues. In our courses, students learn by doing—whether it’s talking about their music, building a website, or balancing a budget—and can tailor each assignment to fit their unique interests and goals. Learn more about our course offerings here.

Entrepreneurial Advisors

We have assembled a creative team of volunteer advisors made up of over 150 distinguished performers, composers, arts administrators, NEC faculty and staff, and professionals from other fields. E-Advisors are paired one-on-one with students in The Entrepreneurial Musician course and serve as mentors to grant recipients. From long-term career and project visioning to nuts and bolts information, our advisors help prepare students to navigate their early professional lives.
