The business of making music

When I was in high school, I wanted to be a scientist, but becoming a musician was my second choice. Fortunately for the world (and for my bank balance, given my talent), I chose another path and get my live music today through concerts.

I'm still very interested in music, and I'm a regular reader of Drew McManus' Adaptistration. When he posted a note some time ago about the possible implications of the Yale School of Music offering free tuition to its students, I wrote him with a few ideas. Those ideas grew into a new, collaborative At Any Rate™ that Drew and I created.

If you're interested in the sustainability of the classical music business or in the application of systems thinking, I invite you to read the article, try the model, explore the related links, and, if you're so inclined, engage Drew
or me (or both of us) in dialog. We'd be very interested in your thoughts, and you might discover that the dynamics we discuss in the classical music field apply elsewhere, as well.
