Learning Centre Design
The Music SA Learning Centre is designed with emerging Music Industry entrepreneurs and innovators in mind. Our courses use a project based, accelerated music business incubator model. During 2016, our participants were well on their way to building and spreading better music business practices. We emphasise flexible, peer, collaborative & social learning. Our participants experience the vital connection to the ever changing Music Sector.
