Featured student: Nick Floyd
Education: Bachelor’s of music from Belmont University, Nashville
Current job: I work with a music company called Naxos, we deal with every aspect of the music industry, largely classical. I specifically work in licensing and library services. We have a subscription service that public libraries, universities and performing arts organizations subscribe to. It’s an educational, electronic resource. We basically have a music software that has educational resources as well as streaming music.
I was a music major in Nashville, as an undergrad. I was fortunate to find this job almost five years ago and this job took me to library conferences, like the American Library Association, the Music Library Association, and after a while I noticed how much fun was being had by the attendees.
