BPMI-401 is the first part of the 3-semester BPMI Live experiential learning program. This course provides students the opportunity to scout, discover, and pitch artists of varying genres, who may have the potential to be "the next big thing" in popular music. Students will learn how to analytically listen to music, evaluate an artist’s potential for opportunity, and research relevant data such as social media and streaming statistics. Throughout the semester, students will evaluate as many as 300 artists with the goal of choosing 5-10 who will ultimately be booked into major music festivals across the continent, including Lollapalooza, The Governors Ball, and Osheaga. Admission to the course is by application.
