Industry Relations
Industry ties

Close relationships with the music industry ensure a cutting-edge learning environment at Moscow Music School

Students start to interact with accomplished artists, labels, managers, producers, brands, and agencies early on their study.

Partnership collaborations are an integral part of all educational programs offered by the school. These projects can take the form of client briefs, bidding contests to create fully fledged commercial content, development of strategic solutions for real-life events or products, company internships, etc. This collaboration gives seasoned professionals an opportunity to directly exchange their experience with students;
meanwhile, thanks to the ever-growing pool of domestic and international partners that the school maintains, students can absorb a multi-faceted mix of expertise and build an essential database of valuable contacts. Among Moscow Music School’s partners are major record labels, musical instrument and sound equipment manufacturers, booking agencies, distribution companies, and landmark cultural institutions.
Partnership

Any company that is interested in advancing the music market in Russia is welcome to lend its support to the school’s educational programs. Below you’ll find the most common partnership formats:

1.

Briefs

During the course of study, students reinforce their new knowledge with practical assignments working on real-life briefs and cases by partner companies. Partners receive a batch of actionable solutions for a given brief. “Live” projects involve the integration of the brief into the study plan, and are carried out under instructor-led supervision.

2.

Master classes, workshops, lectures

Partners are encouraged to share their expertise with the school’s students in any format — from presenting their new product, to master classes on how to better use the equipment available at the school, to an open talk with a brand ambassador.

3.

"Pop-up" showrooms

A showroom full of a brand’s equipment is a great opportunity for musicians to try it out, ask questions, and make purchasing decisions.

4.

Integrations into external events

Moscow Music School is a partner responsible for the educational aspects of a number of important industry events, such as Bosco Fresh Fest, Present Perfect Festival, Signal, Synthposium, Moscow Music Week, and others.

Participation in a loyalty program

A loyalty program allows one to support the musical and professional community both in the form of discounts and by staging special community events.

In addition, Moscow Music School set up a ‘pop-up’ showroom where guests could try out the hardware themselves.
