Music Licensing: New Revenue for Local Musicians
September 13th, 7-9pm at Notes

During our 5th session, hosts Brian Penick and Joey Hendrickson introduce musicians to an international music supervisor and ask local musicians how they've secured licensing placements.

(All sessions topics were selected from a very recent survey that you can still take here!)

Premise: For all musicians who Live Your Passion Like You Mean Business... this workshiop series is for you. It's about time to discuss independent musicians as business owners who are working to create value within the constraints of a disorganized industry.

During these sessions, we'll touch on traditional and untraditional revenue streams, share tools for stacking renenue, and ideas for where new revenue may exist and how musicians may be able to go after it. Our vision: We believe local musicians are the creators, entreprenuers, and drivers of value in the new music industry, who can fill gaps that the national music industry has left behind.
