Spring 2019 - This class was insane! They'd bring giants of the music industry every week as guest lecturers. You learn all aspects of the business and are required to make a project which your group is assigned a real-life-artist for whom you need to create a marketing plan involving all areas of the music industry. Touring, radio, social media, and everything else is included. Definitely a must if you are a music industry minor
Spring 2018 - Probably the most interesting class I've taken at UCLA. Every week, we'd get guest lecturers, mostly music execs from the industry, who come talk to us about their job. My quarter, Rob Light, Scooter Braun, Spotify and Universal Music Group executives all came in to do Q&As and give mini-lectures. The final consists of a marketing presentation by the marketing pod you get randomly placed in. Each pod got assigned an artist, and during the last class, each group got up in front of the class and a panel of judges to give their final presentation. This made a up a huge chunk of your grade - we also had weekly responses due on CCLE and they'd randomly check attendance during lecture. Really amazing class, highly recommend!
