Future Music Moguls 2017 is sadly coming to an end. This was an exceptional class that represented some of the most talented young students in the tri-state area with a majority of the class comprised of young women.
Just in the last 3 weeks of the program, the students were inspired by special guests: Grammy winner Kimbra, Grammy and Tony winner Daveed Diggs, and platinum-selling songwriter and recording artist, Bibi Bourelly!
Additionally the students were lucky enough to learn from the following industry guests: Reggie “Combat Jack” Ossé, Amir “Blame The Label” Abassy, Stretch Armstrong, Evan Auerbach, Melanie McClain, Richie Cruz, Geoff Strasser, Dave Tozer, Jeff Geazey, Calvin Rosekrans, Alyssa Castiglia, Matt Maschi, Yvette Noel-Schure, OP! Miller, Chris Annibell, Dana Kirk, and Cherokee McAnelly. Clive Davis Institute faculty members Jeff Rabhan, Dan Charnas, Eren Cannata, Jeff Peretz, Bob Power, Kenn Hicks, Jim Anderson, and Jason King worked closely with the class on special workshops and talks that ranged from business/finances to songwriting, production, performing, and writing.
