DJ IZ: Apprenticeships vs Online Learning in the Music Business
Online learning, I think is definitely good. I think there’s definitely a piece in there that is forward-moving in the educational aspect. But I think at some point, there’s only so much you can do and learn and get from environments that don’t allow any engagement or contact to happen. I think online does capture a couple things, does allow you to grow in certain areas. But ultimately, that is truly tested when you get into the real world. Even externships, I mean, true externships, what we would call them is someone who you would allow to come into your environment and basically be a fly on the wall. And, that would be like your introduction to these particular fields, or rooms, where you would just kind of absorb and become a sponge and gather as much information as you possibly could. The taking someone under your wing approach.
