Prescription 2 Rock
Prescription 2 Rock will feature four clinics, each with a guest speaker relating their experiences in the rock, country, metal, or electronic dance music genres.
The fifth edition of Prescription 2 Rock presents guest speakers Lindsay Broughton, Before the Curtain, Onez!e, and Counterparts, who will be performing songs and hosting Q&A sessions with the audience.
Music Business Management students at Durham College are hosting Prescription 2 Rock (P2R) as part of their curriculum. The featured musician/songwriters will speak about the business aspects of working in their particular genres, the culture associated with each, songwriting techniques, and their own personal experiences in the music business. P2R will focus on rock, metal, country, and electronic dance music.
Prescription 2 Rock will take place on Wednesday, April 3, in The Marketplace at Durham College, 2000 Simcoe St. N. Oshawa, from 6 - 10pm. Tickets are $5.00 and can be purchased at the door. The event is suitable for music fans and aspiring musicians of all ages who are interested in getting a personal glimpse of what goes on “behind the scenes” of their favourite musical genre, while learning about others as well.
The Music Business Management program at Durham College prepares students to manage the business aspect of the music industry. Students develop an array of skills including management, marketing, promotion, and small business operations, while learning the essentials of event production, live sound reinforcement, studio operations, media, and more. The program features practical learning experience through workshops, activities, and planning events such as P2R.
Prescription 2 Rock is an ancillary event to Reel Music Festival (RMF) also organized by MBM students. RMF runs from April 3 – 6, and features the annual Songs Revealed songwriters showcase and competition, music-related seminars, a film festival, demo derby, tradeshow, and musical performances in multiple venues in the Durham region.
