This course was very useful and important to me, I plan on venturing in the music world very soon and knowing/ equipping myself with all of these will come in pretty handy for me. Thank you immensely.
I advise this great course to everybody who wants to learn more about music industry in general, music business principles and tricks, including all types of agreements and principal actors.

Very good overview of the current state and history of the music industry. Very eloquent teacher, but for max efficiency increase speed to 1.25/1.5. Only downsides is the major focus on the US market. Although somewhat applicable to European and Asian markets, I do believe certain aspects are different in these markets and could be pointed out in extra course material.

The course is really easy going, easy to understand and interesting. Of course, it is focused on USA's music industry and laws and for a foreign people is at some point a little bit frustrating because the differences between USA's music industry and the Spanish one are really significant. However, it is good to know the basics of such a big part of USA economy.

I enjoyed this introductory course from Berklee and the instructor. It would be a great course for someone who is looking to have a career in the music business as an entertainment attorney. I will consider taking the additional courses in this Specialization in the future.

Interesting course. It gives you a wide notion of roles in music industry and how the recording and live performance market has evolved during the year. The only problem is that it is extremely focused on US market and it's particular laws

This was a well put-together course with lots of great real-life examples by the lecturer. One of the things that they could do to improve this course is to update the content (I think the latest update was somewhere between 2014-2016).

A very informative introductory course, providing basic knowledge and overview of practices in the music business. Particularly useful for artists who want to be educated on the financial and legal aspects in managing music career.
By Melissa L•
VERY informative and extremely useful. It's slightly outdated in that it's a few years old and we're currently in the middle of a huge shift within the industry itself. The Do It "OUR"selves info is extremely important to know.
By Zachary M•
This course is very informative about the financial aspects of the music industry. It's sometimes hard to keep my eyes open during the videos, but I think that has more to do with the subject matter than John's presentation.
By Shubham C•
The course is super informative and will give you great Insights about the industry but the syllabus are very old. Probably from 2013-2014 and the industry has grown exponentially after that and it doesn't cover that.
By Leonardo R•
Thank you for this great course. John is such a great Instructor! and I think I received great info. The only things that I would suggest to include are: more tools in this digital era to be succesful.
By Olga S•
The course is good. But I would like to hear something about rights in digital music, rights for cover versions. Is it possible to add this information to the course? Would be great.

Excelente metodologia de enseñansa y la informacion es inaluable, pero deben poner subtitulos en español, se supone que este curso se adapta al idioma español, por eso lo habia tomado

overall there's a lot of valuable knowledge being shared, but it seems like the curriculum could use an update so that it's more up-to-date for the global music industry in 2020.
By Jimmy T•
Very complete for artists, a little less adapted for professionals from outside US but gives you solid understanding of the industry.

Deberia estar mas actualizado ya que la industria musical ha cambiado en estos ultimos años y de eso no se menciona mucho

A good presentation of fundamental topics of how the music business is by a cool and experienced lecturer, Mr. Kellog.
By George B•
A bit focused on American regulations, however all in all a solid course about Music Business as a whole.
By Yann B•
Might go a bit more in depth, but as an intro course, has the essentials and practical tips, really good.
By Natalie S•
The course must give a global perspective on the music business & not limit it just to the united states
By LEONARDO S•
se necesita traducción al español por cierta terminología que hace mas difícil el aprendizaje

Very intellectually stimulating, practical yet easy to understand for beginners in this area.
