This March saw MLC Academy host the Sessions Panel at Confetti Institute of Creative Technologies annual Industry Week.

The Sessions Panel empowers students with business information from music industry professionals who share their knowledge and experience. The events are hosted at prestigious schools and venues around the world. MLC Academy was invited to host the Sessions Panel at a result of several meetings at the 2018 NAMM show. It made complete sense to us to ask our strategic partners at Confetti if they would co-host the event at their annual Industry Week.

Industry Week

In previous years, Confetti students have had the chance to learn from and network with guests, such as legendary documentary filmmaker Nick Broomfield, Emmerdale favourites Roxy Shahidi & Sammy Winward, PlayStation Access Channel Manager Hollie Bennett and guitar legends Aziz Ibrahim, Andy James & Mikey Demus. This year’s guests include BAFTA winners, Oscar nominees and YouTube sensations. Collaborating with Confetti to host the Sessions Panel made complete sense and the event was a complete success!

The Panel

The panellists were industry experts – Christine Olhman, Carlos Guzman, Paul Quin, Jason Hart and Dom Famularo. The audience listened intently, laughed with the panel and gained an invaluable insight regarding many aspects on today’s modern music industry.

MLC Jam Session

The event finale was a jam session which enabled students to jam together and with members of the team from MLC Academy as well as the panellists themselves. A particular highlight for me, as being able to play together with my son, Jack!
