<div class="field-content"><p>Over at the <a href="http://web2.unt.edu/jazz/forum">Green Room</a>, two messages are posted that ask for students' opinions about courses in music business and music technology.</p>
<p>There is a music business course being offered now. Here's an image of the flyer for it: <a href="http://courses.music.unt.edu/murphy/business.jpg">flyer for music business course</a>.</p>
<p>The views of current and prospective students about courses in these two areas will help the College of Music decide whether to offer them or not.</p>
