Pete Dyson remains fascinated by the potential of music to inspire, entertain, challenge, and heal human beings. Working in the music industry has therefore been a privilege and a pleasure for him that he loves to share with our students. Pete has been supplying legal advice to a diverse range of music industry clients since the late 1990s, and in particular record companies (including being in-house advisor at Fierce Panda Records and Damaged Goods Records etc), managers (including Elbow and Coldplay's management), artists (including Marco Pironni, The Raveonettes, Maps, Wretch 32, Cornershop, etc), producers, promoters (including Club Fandango) and publishers.
Pete has been a senior lecturer at London Metropolitan University since 2004. He teaches many modules across our music industry management degrees and master degrees, and he is the course leader of our MA Music Industry Management and Enterprise. His teaching focuses upon the music industry legal environment, artist and repertoire issues, and globalisation and emerging markets in the music industry. Pete helped create our Visiting Professor scheme and he remains committed to developing links between our courses and the actual music industry. His research interests include new business models, globalisation and the strategic use of music within the hotel sector.
