Thu, 01-30-2014 - 8:14pm

The LA College of Music (LACM), recently changed their name from the LA Music Academy (LAMA), now that they offer Bachelor’s programs (along with a number of music scholarships available).  They recently held their third ongoing, free-to-the-public “Let’sTalkMusic” event with singer-songwriter Moby. Their curriculum focuses students to not only develop their talents but to truly find their voice, understand how to work in the music industry, and to develop a strong network. More on the various scholarships offered here: .


Interviewed by LAMA faculty member Native Wayne Jobson, Moby proved thoughtful and quick-witted as he answered questions about his early background, musical influences and work habits. Moby is a singer/songwriter and DJ hailing from New York that has put out numerous top selling electronica albums. His main advice to aspiring musicians: “Two things. Learn to do everything: write, perform, engineer, produce, and, truly, love what you do.” Previous guests in the series were Ziggy Marley and producer Glen Ballard.
