PRS For Music is set to host a free event in Newcastle offering expert advice to up and coming songwriters and composers.
Following a succession of panels in Manchester, York, Liverpool, Leeds and Sheffield earlier this year, the How to Make Your Music Pay session will take place at The Cluny 2, on Monday, September 19.
Across two panels, a number of industry professionals with will explain the importance protecting your music rights and understanding the various ways that creating music can generate an income.
Both panels will be moderated by Daniel Jones, PRS For Music’s Education and Outreach manager for the north of England, who commented: “These panels are designed with composers and songwriters at every point in their careers in mind – whether you’ve just written your first song or your fiftieth,” he said. “As a membership organisation, PRS for Music doesn’t just collect royalties on your behalf; we’re also here for creators to turn to for advice and education on the music business.”
While the event is free, space is limited so please ensure you book a space online if you wish to attend. Both non-members and PRS For Music members are encouraged to attend.
