GRADUATE'S GUIDE

 
 

A word from Course Creator and Leader, Matthew Lee Robinson

MUSICAL THEATRE
 

"How do I create structure outside of an institution?”

“How do I stay balanced when the industry feels so precarious?”

"How do I build a network of supporters?"

 

After delivering creative products for universities through to Fortune 500 companies, I was consistently approached by performing arts graduates experiencing the same concerns.

 

So, having been in your shoes, I created a program especially for fledgling industry professionals. Within this short course, we explore the strategies and behaviours necessary to transition to, and grow within, a professional performing arts career that balances

inspiration, entrepreneurship and resilience.

As a Graduate’s Guide participant you will:

  • Receive a guided framework of the industry.

  • Create your personal elevator pitch.

  • Shape your biography.

  • Dissect the anatomy of an effective email and how to elicit a response.
