Musicians in Stoke-on-Trent will be given the chance to find out about the complicated world of copyright and royalties in a special seminar to be held in Burslem School of Art next week. Featuring celebrated guest speaker and international online music guru, Andrew Dubber of newmusicstrategies.com and a panel of Musicians’ Union experts, this is a great opportunity for singer-songwriters, composers and performers to understand how the system works and other ways of getting money for their work.
Andy Derrick, MU Midlands Regional Officer, says: “The Musicians’ Union is at the heart of the British music industry, and we are here to provide advice and support both to our members and to the next generation of musicians. This seminar is just one of many we put on throughout the West and East Midlands helping musicians to be more competitive in the 21st Century music business.”
The event is open to all musicians, tickets are £5 (free for MU members) and can be booked in advance by calling the MU on 0121 622 3870 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
The seminar starts at 2pm at the Burslem School of Art, Queen Street, Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent on Wednesday 16th April and finishes at 5.30pm. Each attendee will get a comprehensive information pack on the issues discussed as well as a free copy of Andrew Dubber “20 Things you must know about music online”.
The Musicians’ Union was formed in 1893 and represents nearly 35,000 performers, composers and teachers. As well as negotiating on behalf of its members with major employers, the MU offers a range of services tailored to working in the modern music industry.
