MANAGING A MUSIC PRODUCT
You are going to be delivering a pitch to the class on the night you would like to host. Prepare your presentation focusing on the following points:
- The theme of your evening. Why do you think this will be popular?
- Who will be performing (in school, outside of school, etc.)
- How you will choose the performers.
- Where your evening will take place, and why.
- Considerations you will have to make for your evening (i.e. safety, roles of the team, etc.)
Using the 'Development Plan' below, write up what you think you will need to consider during the idea stage of planning your gig. You can refer to your groups' gig theme if appropriate, or you can go into more detail as to what you think is going to be most important and why.
See attached homework 3 slide below with contents page. Make sure that you have the contents page ready for your next double lesson.
Please find attached the promotion strategies/methods that you researched in class. Please read through these by next lesson.
