Episode 158: The Music Education Initiative is Engaging and Educating the Next Generation of Music and Entertainment Professionals in Northwest Arkansas

About this Episode: 

We recently sat down with Orson Weems and Greg Thompson from the Music Education Initiative to learn about their desire to expose young people to a career path in music. 

According to Weems and Thompson, there are numerous pathways for young people to learn about the music industry and how they can get involved. Of course, we know the typical path of writing, recording, and performing music, but there are other ways to work in the industry, including safety, audio, lighting, and live performances. 

Participating in this workforce development program will give young people a leg up on building music industry relationships and a chance to gain higher than minimum wage entry-level employment.
