Event description

Description

The latest in our series of music industry events is a session on the all-important issue of...getting paid.

The event is aimed at anyone who has to negotiate with promoters, venue managers, other musicians, technicians, suppliers etc. on a regular basis.

Delivered by professional musician and promoter Stephen Wright of Glasgow-based production company Fairpley, the session will cover:

  • The fundamentals of negotiation

  • The key phases of negotiation

  • The best and worst things you can do to a negotiator

  • How to avoid working for nothing

  • Negotiating around a problem or grievance

  • How to negotiate better fees

Louise Stanners Pow of the Musicians’ Union will also be on hand to guide you on using contracts and being treated fairly, as well as highlighting the work the MU does to help musicians.

There’ll be ample time to ask questions too.

The event takes place at The Anatomy Rooms in Aberdeen on Tuesday 18 October 2016 from 6.30-8.30pm.

Tickets are FREE, but limited.
