It's the fourth & final day at the Winter NAMM 2015 show, and Next Level Noise has had an action-packed experience. So far, we learned "How to Get an Endorsement Deal," discovered the "Top 4 Coolest Products for Industry Pros," found the connections between technology & music education, and caught everything that was happening at MI's booth.
After an eventful first two days at NAMM, Next Level Noise brought together some very interesting folks to discuss an important topic in the music business: “How to Get An Endorsement Deal.” Moderated by Chandra Lynn from Glow Marketing, the panel featured MI’s Mike Ramsey, Mike Ciprari of SJC Custom Drums, Brandon Marlon of Peavey & independent singer-songwriter-bandleader Sean Healen. They discussed the dynamics of endorsement deals in a packed house full of musicians—including plenty of MI students.
Here’s what we learned:
Day 1 of NAMM is in full swing in downtown Anaheim, CA--and Musicians Institute kicked things off this morning with the unveiling of their custom-made Amp Hand at booth #4659. Attendees got to plug in and rock out while earning the chance to win a new guitar from ESP Guitars.
Musicians Institute is getting ready to rock out at one of the music industry's biggest events of the year: the Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA. Hosted by the National Association of Music Merchants, the annual showcase features everybody who's anybody in the music manufacturing and technology world. That includes musicians, instrument companies, retailers--even a certain Hollywood College of Contemporary Music. More than 96,000 people registered NAMM in 2014 and 1,500 companies showed off their latest gear.
