The Los Angeles College of Music (LACM) held their third ongoing, free-to-the-public “Let’sTalkMusic” event on Wednesday, January 15th with singer-songwriter Moby. Now offering music degrees, LACM, formerly known as the Los AngelesMusicAcademy, changed their name to the Los Angeles College of Music to better represent what the college is providing. The Bachelor’s Degree programs allow individuals 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, though everyone says it, love what you do.” Previous guest artists were Ziggy Marley and producer Glen Ballard.
