Music Director Bootcamp

“How did you become a Music Director?” That is the question I answer most as a Radio Instructor at NAIT. And my answer is always the same, “you learn on the job.” I was lucky enough to work in environments that fostered and accommodated my learning and development; a rare luxury afforded to many media companies and offices these days. Today’s MD’s and PD’s are swamped –often managing multiple properties– so how does the next generation of Music Directors get started?

Music Director Bootcamp is a weekend course I’m developing with the help of NAIT’s Continuing Education Department and contacts at leading industry software companies including MusicMaster.

Students will learn the basics –and into the “next steps”– of selecting, scheduling, and managing a station’s music library and industry relationships. Is this the sort of course you, or somebody you manage, would benefit from? Do you have a suggestion to make the experience the best it can be? I’d love to hear from you.
