Rose Marshack is a professor of Arts Technology and Music Business at Illinois State University (my alma mater), as well as the bass player for the indie rock band Poster Children. I met Rose when I spoke to her Music Business students for the first time in 2013, and immediately loved her enthusiasm for giving her students the skills they need to survive post-graduation.

During the course of our conversation, we talked about:

  • Giving back
  • Maintaining connections with your alma mater
  • “Band Karma”
  • The different approaches to teaching music business
  • Different ways to make a living as a musician
  • Teaching as a form of learning
  • Surrounding yourself with talent
