The latest CMU Insights training programme gets underway this month

By | Published on Monday 9 January 2017

The popular CMU Insights seminar programme ‘How The Music Business Works’ returns later this month, again presenting eight two hour sessions over eight weeks exploring how artists generate revenue, build fanbases and structure their businesses.

Explains CMU Insights MD and course leader Chris Cooke: “In an ever-evolving industry, it pays for everyone to have a full understanding of the wider music business – that is to say all the different ways artists can generate revenue, and the business partners they work with to make that happen. This seminars programme helps music industry professionals get up to speed on the latest trends in their part of the business, but also understand how what they do fits in with all the other aspects of an artist’s career”.

Attendees can book into individual seminars, which all take place at the London HQ of Lewis Silkin on Chancery Lane on Monday evenings from 23 Jan, or they can book a place on the whole eight week course. The programme includes a number of sessions focused on music rights. Cooke continues: “The new year is a great time to set yourself the mission of expanding your knowledge of the music business. It’s not unusual for music industry people to find all the copyright stuff in particular somewhat confusing. Our music rights sessions cover all the basics in an easy-to-digest fashion”.

Individual seminars are just £49.99 while you can book into the full programme for £299, including VAT and booking fees. Premium subscribers can also get a 20% discount on top of that using the code in today’s CMU Premium bulletin. For more information and to book your places, click here.
