For young musicians aiming for a career in the music industry, the focus is often on practicing, performing, and becoming the best musician they can be.
But there’s more to a career in music than just making music.
In this workshop, participants will learn all about the business of being a musician from a panel of youth musicians currently working in the music industry. Our guest speakers will share advice and lessons learned from their experiences in a variety of areas, including:
- Getting gigs
- Marketing and promotion
- Producing your own music
- Producing your own events
- Grants and other funding sources
- Social media
- Finding your niche
- Valuing yourself as a professional
Registration is FREE, and participants will get a sneak peek at a new Youth4Music resource for youth musicians!
