It’s been another eventful week for us; from partnerships with the world leaders of music education to attending events that are shaping the future of music, we truly are busy!
Our partnership with The ACM!
The ACM (Academy of Contemporary Music) has joined forces with us to revolutionise the way students involve themselves within the industry.
We plan on providing students a chance to dive straight in to the industry, taking that one step further to give fresh, young talent a head start in the vast world of music.
Martin Kent, Head of Creative Industry Development at ACM spoke upon the partnership saying “Being a part of ACM and a successful player in the global music scene simultaneously lets me see the endless stream of innovative talent emerging from the college as well as the major importance of the Music Gateway platform as a world player in their development of opportunities. I look forward to working together to help build the careers of the next generation of exciting musicians!”

Stuck in a Rut Blog
Our guest blogger, Chris Taylor, got in touch with Canadian hip-hop star Abdominal. With over 20 of experience in the industry Abdominal chats to Chris about tricks of the trade and the best ways in which an artist or band can get out of a rut should they find themselves in one. This really is a great article not only for the advice he gives but also to for users to check out how they can get the most out of the Music Gateway site.
