Keith Hatschek, Director of Pacific's Music Management program will collaborate with award-winning producers, engineers, songwriters, entertainment attorneys, managers, and social media professionals currently working in the industry to teach and mentor students.  Curriculum includes music promotion and marketing, social media, record production and live sound. While morning classes will focus on the fundamentals of music business, students will then break out onto one of the three tracks above for specialized learning.
