LEADERSHIP MUSIC, a non-profit educational program that helps established leaders and decision-makers in the music industry improve their business, has a new facilitator.
DR. STEVEN J. TEPPER, the Curb Center for Art, Enterprise, and Public Policy Associate Director at VANDERBILT UNIVERSITY, has been chosen to lead this annual program. He succeeds VANDERBILT Law professor DR. JAMES BLUNSTEIN, the CURB CENTER former Dir. BILL IVEY, and producer GARTH FUNDIS, who have run the program since it began in 1989. TEPPER was a member of the LEADERSHIP MUSIC Class of 2012.
“LEADERSHIP MUSIC is defined by the program, and the facilitator is vital to it’s the success. STEVEN is uniquely qualified to step into this role, and we feel incredibly fortunate to have him on board in this important role,” LEADERSHIP MUSIC Exec. Dir. DEBBIE LINN said.
“The music industry is not just about figuring out the best way to sell widgets,” said TEPPER. “Everyone involved in the industry cares deeply about the songwriter, the music, the artists, and the audience. I am thrilled by the opportunity to help busy leaders take the time to reflect on big issues that go beyond the day-to-day bottom line and think about the health of the whole system.
