Music Business Workshops

Alexandria Stuart (host of Arts Now on Shaw TV) and Emily Celeste are offering artists a chance to learn about the business side of the music industry with Art Of Music Business workshops on October 24 and 25, 2008. Success in the music business takes both talent and business savvy. Emerging technologies are ushering in a new era in the music industry; artists have the chance to take back their careers and their destinies. Armed with the right information musicians can drive their own careers and pocket the profits long before ever needing a manager.

The workshops kick off Friday, October 24, with beginner sessions at 9 am, 1:30 pm, and 6 pm. Topics will include booking, copyright, and networking. On Saturday October 25, two intermediate sessions (one at 9 am and the second at 1:30 pm) will cover topics like income sources, anatomy of music publishers and record labels, players to know, and publicity.

All workshops will be held at The Blues Underground, 10 Lois Lane in downtown Nanaimo. Registration is $15 in advance or $20 for walk-ins. Pre-register online at Quadra Fusion or call 250-713-1837 for more information.
