MMBE Graduate Breathes Life Into His Career

ImageBruce Tate graduated from MMBE in February this year. Here he tells how the course helped him invigorate his career in the music industry.

“I previously spent ten years as a musician, touring the UK and USA multiple times and gained some great experiences. I decided to take the MMBE course as I wanted to remain in the music industry, but was failing to make it financially viable and was close to changing careers.

Now, instead of just playing guitar, I promote bands, run my own live music night, manage a solo artist and teach underprivileged teenagers to DJ. Not only is it fun and varied, it is financially sustainable and I feel much more positive about what I can achieve in the music business world.

Inspired by the MMBE course, I set up NEED Music Ltd, which represents everything I do. My first endeavour was at South by Southwest in Texas earlier this year. I embarked on a promotional campaign to assist musicians in my region, and it was great increasing the awareness of the acts to international industry delegates through my self-designed dedicated brochure. I significantly increased my database of music business contacts too.

The course was a real eye-opener for me, and truly inspirational – I haven’t looked back since.”
