This course is open to anyone with an interest in acquiring a deeper understanding
If you are determined to make a living (i.e. make money) from music and other creative works, or need to know how licensing works within the music and entertainment business, then this course is for you!
There is more to the music industry than performing live or releasing records. In recent times LICENSING is where the monetisation of music and recording content is at. The course covers sync licensing for films, compilations, broadcast, games, plus sampling. It's an accessible course, although some prior understanding of copyright, publishing and the music industry, is recommended.
“The music (industry) over the last few years has moved from a position where it's a sales-based model to one where it is much more a usage-based model,” says Keith Harris, Stevie Wonder rep & PPL Director of Performer Affairs. “It’s about doing a licence for use of your music.”
