The Alison Pybus workshop provided me with an understanding of the music business from an agent's perspective - an educational component which is sadly missing from most university programs today. From learning how to market oneself, to preparing oneself for what to expect when management is attained, to warning-signs of agent 'scams', the class helped to answer questions I wasn't even aware I had. -Amanda Fink, Vocalist
