The Business School RMA professor, an independent music market expert, Alexey Nikolaev remarked the importance of the educational component in improving communication between the local music scene participants. "Today the lack of knowledge about the way the music industry works, often hinders communication of musicians, producers, record labels, and the audience. Musicians do not understand how to organize the distribution of its records, the audience does not understand how the musicians earn their money. My lectures are aimed at telling simple words young musicians and the audience, how the music business works, what is the scheme of the processes in the music community. In an atmosphere of easy communication together we formulate relevant questions and find the answers. This format of interaction helps to acquire new knowledge and improve communication "- concluded Alex.
