Amplify Workshop Series
In November 2015, the SF State Music/Recording Industry program invited students to attend the inaugural session of the Amplify Workshop Series. The first workshop, titled Diversifying Your Career, was a free event which allowed students the opportunity to network with industry professionals based in the Bay Area and learn about unique career paths in the music industry.
The Amplify Workshop Series will continue as an interactive forum for students to enhance their education, learn about industry trends, and increase their knowledge of the music industry through panel discussions and networking events.
