Big Sean is adding an education element to his upcoming I Decided tour that will help middle and high school students start careers in the entertainment industry.
The Detroit rapper/philanthropist’s Mogul Prep program will be a series of workshops focused on teaching youths about all of the other aspects of the music industry besides being the famous artist. The goal is to expose students coming out of high school to lucrative careers that they can enter immediately. These paths include everything from working on tours to working in studios.
“When that check comes in, I’m the very, very last person to get paid,” says Sean in a video for the program. “I didn’t realize how many different aspects and jobs in [are in the music industry]. I would have liked to have that option.”
The program is an extension of the Sean Anderson Foundation was put together by Sean and his mother Myra Anderson who is a former educator. The program is Common Core aligned meaning that teachers all over the country can use it in their classrooms as well.
Mogul Prep workshops will be held in four cities during Sean’s I Decided tour this Spring. Check out the dates below. If you are an educator interested in implementing Mogul Prep in your classroom, click here to find out how.
