ABOUT US

what is coda?

Coda Collectiv was founded in February 2021 by a diverse group of women across the globe with the goal to educate and inform aspiring music industry professionals about the different jobs and opportunities that the industry has to offer. 

As aspiring industry professionals ourselves, we wanted to create something by aspiring music industry professionals for aspiring music professionals. While navigating and learning about the industry, we noticed a lack of essential information and a need for providing the fundamentals to get started. Therefore, we decided to create a solution. We work with industry professionals to gather and organize information to become a reliable source and ensure credibility.

 

Our mission is to gather and organize music industry information and make it accessible for aspiring industry professionals all over the globe.

We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to learn about the music industry, and we want to make it more inclusive by providing resources for everyone, everywhere. Our goal is to create a space where fans, aspiring professionals, and artists can find everything they want to know.

hi hello! I’m Stef from Germany :) I have attended concerts ever since I was 14 and because of that, I want to work in touring. However, I’m open to everything and there are a lot of other interesting areas in the industry (like artist management, a&r, or sync for example). Favorite artist is a hard question to answer, but I listen to a lot of Role Model, Maisie Peters & The Driver Era!

What’s up, I’m Nikita! I’m a sophomore in Drexel University’s Music Industry program (which is why I tell myself concert tickets are a business expense). I listen to most music but I’ve been super into indie/pop-punk, alternative, and whatever genres in that vicinity. Think... AJR, Jon Bellion, Halsey, and Machine Gun Kelly-type beat. Currently, I’m learning as much as I can about marketing and touring/booking and getting experience so we’ll see where it all goes!

Heeey there! It’s Nikki. I’m currently pursuing a degree in Management Engineering at Politecnico di Milano. I’m a big fan of Harry Styles, Shawn Mendes, The1975, Frank Ocean, Bastille, and 21pilots. I’m very passionate about music curation and would love to become a part of a streaming company as an editor/curator. However, I could also see myself in data analysis and finance departments since it’s extremely interesting and important to understand what is going on behind the scenes.
