The Future of the Music Industry Starts Here

CMA EDU is a collegiate professional development program that gives college students an inside look into the music industry and provides them with the skills and connections they need to jump start a career in the industry. The ultimate goal is to support and educate the next generation of music industry leaders through hands-on experience, immersion into the industry, and transparent advice on what to expect from their future career.

What We Do

CMA EDU gives students several involvement opportunities, including panel discussions, Q&As with industry leaders & artists, resume workshops, volunteer opportunities, mentorship, promotional campaigns, and internship & employment opportunities. In addition, involved members can gain access to exclusive behind-the-scenes experiences, such as meet & greet passes, soundcheck access, and backstage venue tours.

The CMA EDU Executive Summit, pictured to the right, is the organizations annual professional development conference where student leaders from around the country gather in Nashville to learn and prepare for the upcoming year. During this event, students are given the opportunity to network with industry professionals and engage with fellow student leaders.
