Event description

Description

Chris Cooke from CMU leads an afternoon session of practical and fact-packed workshops looking at how to make money from your music, protect your music rights and get your tracks streaming.

Making Money From Music
If an artist wants to give up the day job and focus on their music full time, they need to turn their music into revenue. This workshop provides an overview of the main ways in which artists make money and an introduction to the companies they work with as they grow their artist businesses.

Sorting Out Your Music Rights
The minute you write a song or record a track you have created a copyright – so welcome to the copyright business! This workshop talks you through the basics of music copyright, introducing the controls that come with the copyright, and explaining how music rights make money.

Understanding The Digital Music Market
Streaming is the biggest and fastest growing recorded music revenue stream, though the ins and outs of the streaming business are quite complicated. This workshop explains how it all works, and how early-career artists can get streamed, get paid and utilise all the data the platforms provide.

This event is free to attend for MU members - to join the MU for just £1 for your first 6 months of membership, visit www.themu.org/join
