This masterclass is open to anyone with an interest in developing a career in the music industry. It’s aimed at the unsigned or do-it-yourself artist, musicpreneur, or those who provide artists, songwriters and producers with specialist support. It’s an opportunity to help you turn your music industry dreams or plans into reality! It’s a sort of 1-2-1 session, with answers geared towards individual’s interests.

Are you an aspiring musician? Do you want to work in the music industry?

If you don’t know your MU from your PPL, your PRS from your VPL, or your BPI from your AIM, then this masterclass is for you!

If you want to know more about your options for developing a career and income streams for your passion and musical talent – then this masterclass is for you!

This course amalgamates most of our short music industry courses (excluding Preparing A Music Business Plan Workshop).
