Behind the Beat – The MIA’s industry podcast service!


The MIA is proud to launch its new podcast platform, Behind the Beat: the new place to discover more about the issues affecting our industry in a regular and in-depth audio format that you will be able to access from a number of service providers…

Every few weeks, we will tackle a topic current and relevant to MI, with help from the key figures in manufacture, retail, publishing & education. You can expect thought provoking content, thorough interviews, important industry updates and inspiring stories.

This week, we bring you the first 2 episodes in a special series recorded at the recent Education Conference hosted by the MIA.

“Music Education – the HUGE opportunity for our industry” was held in London on 24th October and focused on the opportunity that Music Education offers to the whole industry.

In this first episode you will hear an introduction by David Barnard of the MIA Education Committee, and keynote addresses from Mark Pierce of Youth Music and Paul McManus, Chief Executive of the MIA. In the second episode, Steven Greenall of Warwick Music delivers a Keynote address and we listen in on the first panel ‘the current situation – challenges and triumphs in music education’.

We hope you enjoy listening!
