Students formed their own multi-discipline teams and developed social enterprise businesses with a music element. The final businesses included:

– Soundpainting for non-musicians

– Learn a musical instrument (matching teachers with new students in the university)

– Pitch Play (software for teaching music)

– Pub Quiz (integrating course knowledge in a less formal quiz setting at University)

– Uptown Vibes (cafe music enterprise for fostering new performers and artists in a quieter space)
