NETMCDO — CELEBRATING 24 YEARS!
The Network of Music Career Development Officers (NETMCDO) was founded in 1995 by Angela Beeching, of New England Conservatory at the time, and John Blanchard, of Manhattan School of Music.
The original goal was simply to gather together colleagues at similar music schools throughout the U.S. to discuss issues and get to know each other. When we began to widen our circle and advertise our annual meetings in New York, we saw more and more interest from schools without career centers for musicians or course work on the business of music. We have grown into an inclusive organization where “veterans” and “novices” alike share viewpoints, experiences, and knowledge.
NETMCDO is now a thriving network with members across the world. The Network holds an annual two-day conference to delve into vital topics of the field. For several years now, John Steinmetz has be an integral ingredient in our successful organization.
