Are you a Project Manager or Education Manager employed by music institutions, universities, conservatoires, festivals, orchestras, opera companies, ensembles or composer residencies who either a) work with adult student and/or professional composers, and/or b) develop training for student and/or professional composers of contemporary classical music?
(Please note, those working with composers of jazz, pop, film/theatre/TV and game music are outside of the scope of this research, as are projects outside of Europe.)
What Is This Survey About
The survey comprises 24 questions that seek to identify:
Entrepreneurial skills that composers need to make them more employable for Project Managers/Education Managers;
Specific needs as seen by Project Managers/Education managers that will help composers develop an entrepreneurial spirit, a sense of initiative and active approach towards their cultural action, and an understanding of their business potential and economic viability.
All survey responses will be anonymous.
The outcomes of this study will be made available through the publication of a European Report by the EU Smart Composer Project. They will also be used to create a training and a handbook. Information about all of these outputs is available online at Eusmartcomposer.eu
