As a budding Music Business student, I would be interested in studying the subcultures of musicians, songwriters, producers, mastering engineers, and publishers.
I would like to observe the practices of musicians and songwriters in recording and writing sessions so that I can see how professionals conduct themselves and apply that knowledge to my future experiences. As an amateur musician and songwriter, any type of guidance from experienced musicians and songwriters would be valuable information.
Similarly, I would like to study producers and mastering engineers because I hope to attain those titles in my lifetime. Through observations of the recording and mastering processes, I would attempt to learn production and mastering techniques and their appropriate applications. My effort would hopefully provide me with experience to suggest creative solutions to problems in an efficient and effective manner during recording and writing sessions.
Finally, I would like to examine publishers because I hope to create my own publishing company. By observing publishers, I would learn the creative, business, and legal logistics of the music business. This observation would supply me with priceless information that I could apply to my future occupational endeavors and personal aspirations.
