There is no shortage of educational programs and events for musicians hosted or supported by the various provincial music industry associations (MIAs). Canada, it’s often noted, does a pretty good job of supporting musicians’ career education and development. But what about those who work with musicians – the managers, agents, labels, and others who play crucial roles in the music industry? These professionals, whose decisions can make or break a musician’s career, are often left out of this educational focus in our national music industry. That’s who Music BC wanted to empower with its intensive Phoenix Training & Professional Development Program.
