Los Angeles College of Music (LACM) – formerly known as LA Music Academy (LAMA) is comprised of talented musicians from around the world – many of whom have earned music scholarships to pursue a career in music there. The school provides students with real life situations with professional musicians that prepare them for the real world music business. The LA College of Music (LACM), recently changed their name now that they offer Bachelor’s degrees.
They recently held their third ongoing, free-to-the-public “Let’sTalkMusic” event with singer-songwriter Moby. Their curriculum focuses students to not only develop their talents but to truly find their voice, understand how to work in the music industry, and to develop a strong network.
Interviewed by LAMA faculty member Native Wayne Jobson, Moby proved thoughtful and quick-witted as he answered questions about his early background, musical influences and work habits. Moby is a singer/songwriter and DJ hailing from New York that has put out numerous top selling electronica albums. His main advice to aspiring musicians: “Two things. Learn to do everything: write, perform, engineer, produce, and, truly, love what you do.” Previous guests in the series were Ziggy Marley and producer Glen Ballard.
