The Center for Entrepreneurship will launch a student-run record label in the Spring 2017 semester, offering students real-life experience recording, producing, promoting, and distributing music.
Students will be mentored by top industry professionals and participate in workshops on campus and at recording studios in New York City. They will immerse themselves in all aspects of the recording business, and perform all duties necessary to commercialize music over the course of the semester. Each semester will culminate in a live performance of the label’s recorded material.
The project, a partnership with the Lawrence Herbert School of Communication, the Frank. G. Zarb School of Business and the Department of Music (School of Humanities, Fine and Performing Arts, Hofstra College of Liberal Arts & Sciences), is now accepting applications.
Students from all majors and disciplines are eligible to participate. Those studying marketing, public relations, radio production, music and music merchandising/music business are strongly encouraged to apply.
The deadline for applications is Saturday, Dec. 17, 2016.
Positions with the record label project are unpaid, but some students may be eligible to earn academic credit through independent study. For more information about the project, or to apply, go to hofstra.edu/recordlabel.
