It used to be that the early recording schools of 25 years ago always taught business. In fairness to today's schools,
1] the music business changes so fast that it would be impossible to develop a business because you wouldn't know what it would be like by the time you needed to know.
What to do? Teach cooking?
Another thing that seems to be missing is basic electricity and electronics, and practical applications. Do they even know what a soldering iron is for?
Good points worth discussing
Recording 101 was available in a San Jose college some years ago, as a night class.
Granted tech changes , almost weekly. But thats the world we live in.
To deal with substantial change, the course material is updated at least once per year.
That is already happening with all college courses.
Since much curriculuum is online, the content could be updated more often.
Remember , college courses are to prep the student to " think ".
Learning how to think [ critically, analytically]
is more vital than a memorization of 12 steps on how to complete a task.
