Dae Bogan Announces Marcato Academy’s FREE “Music Industry Entrepreneurship Masterclass Tour” 2017 – Brooklyn / Oakland / Cleveland / Los Angeles
For years I’ve been asked to live stream my classes and workshops. I’ve finally decided to do something even better: I’ve decided to develop an online music business academy.
Over the next few months, I will be developing and publishing music business education online courses under the brand Marcato Academy. In music theory, “marcato” is the Italian word for emphasis and here I use it to mean an emphasis on quality music business education.
To kick-off to this journey, I’ve decided to put together a series of FREE masterclasses in cities that I will be visiting over the next several weeks to speak at music industry conferences or catch up with family and friends.
The “Music Industry Entrepreneurship Masterclass Tour” will feature four spot dates of 2 hour classes held in Brooklyn, Oakland, Cleveland, and Los Angeles.

Dae Bogan To Teach “Music Industry Entrepreneurship” Class At UCLA Summer Session, June 27th – August 1st – Open To General Public
Dae Bogan, Co-founder and CEO of music rights and metadata management startup TuneRegistry and a UCLA alumnus, has been confirmed to develop and instruct a course on music industry entrepreneurship at UCLA.
The 4-unit course will be included among UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music‘s class offerings through the UCLA Summer Session program. The class is open to UCLA students (undergraduate and graduate students) as well as Non-UC students/general public.
From the tentative syllabus:
The music industry is an ecosystem consisting of an interrelated network of robust sectors. From recorded music and music publishing to live music and mobile apps, entrepreneurs have been disrupting and innovating across these sectors for decades. In the Digital Age of music, there has been a spike in startups across all sectors of the music industry with new players entering the industry despite cautionary tales of challenge and failure. They’ve re-shaped how consumers access music, they’ve challenged the relationships between so-called gatekeepers and aspiring musicians, and they’ve created niche markets that have grown to become billion dollar sectors. They’ve launched new talent in innovative ways and they’ve earned one hundred million dollar valuations within mere months. This is the entrepreneurial spirit at work. This is the manifestation of great ideas at work. This is entrepreneurship in the music industry.
In this course, students will learn fundamental principles of entrepreneurship across all phases of the start-up process. Students will analyze case studies and current events and participate in critical discussions around alternative business strategies in music industry entrepreneurship. Course work will consist of group assignments, workgroup labs, and strategic planning; all culminating in the presentation of a fictitious music industry company at the end of the session.
