A few weeks ago Australian Institute of Music (AIM) Melbourne was lucky enough to host Sarah Aarons aka Paige IV (3 time ARIA nominee) just before she jetted off to LA be based there.
Alanna Deutrom from The Coach Couch facilitated the Q & A, explored Sarah's ethos on songwriting, her career from sending torrents of emails to Sony through to getting signed and working with artists such as Kelly Clarkson, Guy Sebastian and Demi Lovato, and her advice for other artists.
Students in the AIM Contemporary department undertaking a songwriting specialisation found the talk especially helpful, but there were great business takeouts for anyone looking to achieve in the music industry.
“I want to thank AIM for inviting myself and The Coach Couch to chat to their students. We loved working with the staff who were so accommodating, friendly, and opened to new things! It was so great that The Australian Institute Of Music has such an innovative and progressive approach to teaching. I was refreshed to see the students being so excited and inspired about what they were learning. I love the diversity AIM has in what they teach and it was so exciting to be able to meet a bunch of students who have the same passions that I do.” - Sarah Aarons
