Hum Mentoring Service for Music Graduates


Making the transition from music graduate to pro: how do you convert your musical ability into a career? Hum MD Joe Glasman has launched a one-to-one mentoring service for those starting out, providing them with personalised career development advice vital for making the transition to professional freelance composer.

Joe says: “After years of mentoring interns and university year-in-industry students at Hum, I’ve realised that music degrees often miss something vital: how to effectively tailor a particular individual composer’s skills and aspirations to the realities of the professional music world.

My mentoring is concerned with helping aspiring composers set a course within the business and its structures, but also – vitally – with advising them on how to develop their existing writing and producing in order to acquire the golden key to professional work: a clear and distinctive musical voice.” Joe Glasman

There is a 10% discount for BASCA members, just mentioned this on booking. You can read full details about the service here.
