MI Offers Free Music Business Seminars
Posted by Michael Mueller on February 10, 2009 at 2:49 PM
On Thursday, February 19 and Thursday, March 12 at 7:00pm, Musicians Institute is offering free, open-to-the-public music business seminars at its Hollywood campus. Each seminar will be conducted by members of MI's six-month Music Business Certificate program faculty.
February 19: Music Contracts: Don’t Get Screwed Again
What to sign and what not to sign? A panel of music industry attorneys (Dina LaPolt, Burgundy Morgan, Jeff Blue) will discuss contract issues, loopholes, and what clauses new artists should avoid. A Q&A session will follow the panel discussion.
March 12: Getting Gigs, Getting Paid, Getting Endorsements
Don't be fooled by "pay to play"—find out where and how to get gigs that pay you, including getting into the college circuit and setting up your own tours. Panelists Chris Fletcher, Bobby Borg, and Bernard Baur also discuss endorsements—find out who and when to call, what they offer, and what you need to do to get one.
Seating is limited and reservations are recommended. Call 800-255-7529 to RSVP. Both events will be held in MI's main concert hall at 1655 N. McCadden Place, Hollywood CA 90028. Doors open at 6:30 and food will be served while it lasts.
