There are a couple Warped dates left! Don't miss learning from Cody Carson of Set It Off! Check out his interview after the jump to find out why he's passionate about teaching!
Why were you interested in taking part in The Entertainment Institute’s Music Business Workshops?
When I initially entered this music industry I remember wishing that the artists that were doing well would give me advice on what to do and what not to do. We had to learn a lot of lesson to get to where we are today and there are still plenty more to come, but this is our outlet to help other hungry artists to avoid certain common mistakes and to help them develop into the best version of themselves.
Why should kids sign up for your workshop?
I have a lot of knowledge on the topics I chose to teach. I've taken many private lessons myself and I've also learned through 6-7 years of personal experience. Education is very important to me and I will make sure my students get the most beneficial experience possible.
Why did you choose to teach this topic?
I chose topics I knew I had a lot of knowledge on and that I knew I could deliver some really new knowledge to people all over the world through TEI.
What Warped artist from the past do you wish your younger self could learn from in one of these workshops and why?
Pete Wentz, he understands business ethics and how this industry works inside and out. There's a reason they came back and went straight back to the top. I don't think it was only him by any means, but he knows how to operate at a very high level.
What are you most looking forward to this summer?
Honestly everything, the spontaneous set times, the energetic warped crowds, the new friends, the old friends. I want it all!
