About The Collaboration Project

Working together effectively is key to success in the music business. The Collaboration Project course helps build collaborative skills by having artists produce a project as a creative team.

During Level 4 of Icon’s Full Blueprint Curriculum, students focus on working successfully in teams to overcome obstacles and produce a musical project. They are assigned to groups and must collaborate to create a 3-track EP in 10 weeks.

At the end of the quarter during Finals Week, a judging panel of music industry professionals selects the winning EP. Winners of the Collab Project gets the opportunity to play at the Icon Takeover, and their EP receives promotion across all Icon channels. #IconCollabEP
