“You can still be in the music industry and not necessarily be a performer” is just one pieces of advice that rapper Big Sean is giving to his students around the country.
Mogul Prep, which is aligned with the common core curriculum, shares 20+ lessons that take children on a career exploration of a myriad of professions within the music industry.
Launched through the rapper’s Sean Anderson Foundation, he and his mother, a former educator, Mayra Anderson, blended curriculum that would introduce students to industry leaders, insights into the industry and related careers. During a recent interview with RollingStone.com, Big Sean told the entertainment magazine that he wanted to share insight with students, who want to be in the music industry, what it was really like on all levels ranging from performer to management to publicity.
“That’s the point that these kids need to see: You can still be in the music industry and not necessarily be a performer. When I stand on that stage, there are at least 30 other people that have something to do with me standing there. Business managers, publishers, publicists, agents, booking agents, creative directors, lighting technicians, sound guys-all these different jobs that they don’t teach in high school.”
Mogul Prep is available to schools nationwide and perfectly aligns with CTAE curriculum. Check out the video below and for more click here for more information on Mogul Prep. This will definitely make a lot more learning fun!
