Drake Class Helps Students Start a Career in Music Industry
DES MOINES, Iowa – Drake University students are getting real world experience in music class learning about the industry. Taught by the Executive Director for Station 1 Records, Tobi Parks, the Recorded Music Industry class is meant to give students an “in” to the music industry. “I want them to be able to have a Rolodex of contacts that they can communicate with after the course is over. One of the things that is so hard about this industry is finding ways to break in, and this is a way for students to have one-on-one contact with people that are actually working in the business,” Parks said.
