Lyndon State College offers new Performing Arts Management degree

first_imgLyndon State College is announcing a new degree. The Bachelor of Science in Performing Arts Management will first be offered in the fall of 2010. Students majoring in Arts Management can select among three concentrations: artist management, venue management and theater operations management.The Performing Arts Management degree will prepare students to serve in administrative, managerial and leadership positions in an area related to music and performing arts. Core courses include Financial Accounting, Introduction to Business, Introduction to Business Software, Principles of Management, Principles of Marketing, Business Ethics, Fiscal Management, Event Management and Promotion, Strategic Media Communication and Introduction to Media Communication. All students will also complete Lyndon’s General Education requirements, which are specifically designed and intended to provide a basis of liberal arts for all Lyndon students.In addition, students must meet the requirements of the career-related internship after participating in courses such as the Music Industry Co-op, Event Management and Promotion, Artist Management and Development, Music Venue Management, Entrepreneurship in the Music Industry, House and Box Office Management and Theatre Operations Management Techniques. All of these courses are designed to integrate real-world experience with classroom instruction.Two current faculty members will be central in this new program: Britt Moore and Joe Gittleman. Both came to Lyndon following extensive experience in the industry. Moore worked in California as a sound engineer, and Gittleman is the founder and member of the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, a successful Boston-based band founded in 1983.As with most Lyndon courses, Arts Management students will “do” what they study – they will not be isolated in the classroom, but will be exposed to the demands of an actual work environment. The motto of the Music & Performing Arts and Arts Management departments is “Be early, work hard, say thanks.”Upon graduation, students will be prepared to enter a career with a balance of knowledge in a field associated with music business or theater arts management. There has been a growing trend over the years of students opting for professional courses in their college education. At this time, 65% of Lyndon students are enrolled in such programs.Source: Lyndon State College 3.29.2010last_img read more


O’Neill: Villa role good for Keane

first_img O’Neill has revealed he spoke to Villa manager Paul Lambert about the demands the position would make on Keane’s time before sanctioning the move, which will see the former Manchester United captain combine the two jobs. O’Neill told the Irish Independent: “My view is if it doesn’t impinge on the job here with Ireland, then in actual fact it will end up being good for him. “I know that if we couldn’t have made it work, he wouldn’t have taken the job in the first place. “If his commitments to us – both on the commercial side and certainly from my viewpoint in terms of the time working with players – is not impinged at all, then I’m happy for it to go ahead, genuinely happy. “Villa have agreed to give him all that time with us and therefore I don’t really have a problem with it. I spoke with Paul to see how he felt it was going to work. “He said that he gives the players, the senior players who are not involved at international level, a lot of time off anyway during that time [international breaks] and even if they did come back for a day or two, they could cope with that.” Republic of Ireland boss Martin O’Neill is confident number two Roy Keane will benefit from his joint role as Aston Villa’s assistant manager. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
