About NYU Future Music Moguls Program

Future Music Moguls is a twelve-week workshop designed to introduce sixteen talented high school freshmen, sophomores, and juniors to all aspects of the contemporary music business each spring. Free to participants, the program is held at The Clive Davis Institute's facilities on Saturdays between February and May. The workshop focuses its recruitment efforts on underrepresented groups, particularly students from lower socio-economic backgrounds in the New York tri-state area.

Students who participate in Future Music Moguls not only learn about the creative process behind the writing and recording of hit songs, but they're also exposed to the exciting behind-the-scenes business decisions that help music wind up in the hands of audiences around the world. With a strong emphasis on current issues and rising trends in the distribution and delivery of music, students learn about music entrepreneurship and are introduced to issues in financial literacy that can be applied to a wide range of future activities, music related or otherwise.
