About the Program

  • Hosted on Coursera by Berklee College of Music
  • Course Format: 4 Interactive Virtual Classes to be completed for Non-Credit Certificate
  • Enrollment Link:
  • Cost: 7 Day Free Trial, then $39/month (I completed the whole program during the trial, it can be done if you are committed)

The Courses

  • Music Business Foundations
  • Building Your Career in Music: Developing A Brand and Funding Your Music
  • Copyright Law in the Music Business
  • Creativity And Entrepreneurship

What I liked about the program content:

  • It wasn’t hard to complete quickly, I started and finished the 4 courses in under 5 days
  • The assignments are quizzes and discussion boards, no time consuming projects
  • The price, I did pay for 1 month after the trial, but $29 from a well known university is so cheap in comparison to other programs that I have done

Who should try this program?

  • High School Students who are considering majoring in music industry
