Hi there! I'm Lana Crowster and I'm raising funds for my Post Grad studies!

I've been accepted to New York University to pursue my Master's degree in Music Business. Unfortunately, they do not offer scholarships for foreign students & because of my age, I am ineligible for most external scholarships. I was supposed to start school September 2019 but due to lack of funding and sponsorship, I was unable to attend. Fortunately, the Board of Admissions at New York University as granting a deferral which means they kept my spot for September 2020. Then COVID-19 hit and we all know how that went/is going. Regardless, I am extremely determined to start studying in 2021 and Back A Buddy will be a great way to collect as much funding as possible for this cause.

I have been working in the music industry for 20 years and the music education industry for 10 years. I have realized, through research, workshops, and discussions, that our young creatives do not have a clear understanding of the business of music, their rights as artists as well as standard business practices. All these things combined are what makes a successful and financially viable career path in the arts, but unfortunately, South African schools and tertiary institutions do not place importance on this. I hope to learn foreign business practices within the scope of the creative industry and find a way to merge it with South African music business practices and disseminate this information to young creatives, especially young women. I'd like to give young artists the resources to create lengthy careers in the music industry.

The funds will be used to cover tuition for one year. (It's a 2-year degree) or any part of it that is not covered by the scholarships I've applied for/will be applying for.

Funds raised will be paid into my bank account and to the relevant institution.
