The session covers three workshops:

Making Money From Music

Anyone who wants to focus on their music full time needs to be able 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.
