At The Great Escape earlier this month, CMU’s Pathways Into Music Foundation published a new guide to its research work, which is focused on building bridges between music education and the music industry, and supporting aspiring music-makers.

The Foundation has been mapping music careers, and looking at the DIY Phase of a frontline artist’s career, before the music industry gets actively involved.

As part of that, we teamed up with twelve music industry experts to identify 40 pieces of knowledge and information that DIY Phase music-makers need – and which music educators and talent development organisations should be looking to communicate.

In the next phase of Pathways Into Music research – launched at TGE – we’ll be mapping music education in all of its many different forms, with a view to helping industry and educators better sign-post the support available to those who aspire to pursue a career in music.
