I chose JMC Academy because I wanted to get into the business part of the music industry. I love the lifestyle and culture of Melbourne because it is a very artistic city and people really understand the music scene in Australia. People in my JMC course were super friendly and I had so much fun with them.
JMC Academy helped me understand the entertainment business and covered a lot of the things that I needed at the start of my career. It prepared me for the real world! Now I manage 3 bands, co-produce music and find talent around Thailand. I also have other side projects like organising events for promoters and festivals, negotiating deals and working with artists.
During my studies, I did work experience over the summer holidays at JSS Productions in Bangkok. They provide a rental service for high-end sound systems. When I graduated, the CEO offered me a position at his record company and I joined as an A&R Manager. He knew I had studied Music Business and was very happy to have me on board. They value my skills because my English is a bit better than other peoples’, and I tend to understand more about the music industry locally and internationally.
If you want a career in the creative industries, you need a good foundation in understanding the business and industry, and then build on that with practical experience. Get out there and take any opportunity you can! JMC is great because it prepares you in a lot of areas that you may face in your career.
