The Music Education Initiative 


PRODUCTION EDUCATION AND TECHNICAL TRAINING PROGRAM 

ADVANCE YOUR KNOWLEDGE


The overall mission of the Music Education Initiative is to engage, educate, and elevate the next generation of professionals in the business of music and entertainment. One way we do that is through our workforce development program. 

ABOUT THE PROGRAM 


Our Production Education and Technical Training Program is a first-class workshop that will be held at established locations in Northwest Arkansas. It's an immersive experience that exposes, educates, and trains participants on production and technical fundamentals and offers the opportunity to work with companies that are in need of trained talent.

What to Expect 


Participants will be trained by live performance technicians on four key areas of the industry: safety, audio, lighting, and best practices. After training, participants may be eligible for upcoming jobs and potential careers as live performance technicians. This workforce development program gives you the hands-on experience you need while developing relationships with key people in the industry. Ultimately, you'll gain the ability to be hired for entry-level employment at an hourly rate much higher than the current minimum wage.

The Music Education Initiative will host two-hour "Production Workforce and Technical Training Programs" to address the immediate demand for stage crew staffing in the region.

"Pop-Ups" will be hosted in Fayetteville, Springdale, Rogers, and Bentonville.
