It is unlikely that anyone gets into the music business because they have a passion for business but, in today’s D.I.Y. dominated music landscape, it is also unlikely that creatives will fulfil their potential without having a solid understanding of the business they are getting into. This session aims to explain how PRS for Music, one of the key components of that business, functions, with a particular focus on the work of its Outreach team - the team tasked with identifying and supporting the next generation of emerging talent.
The session will be led by Andy Ellis who leads the Education and Outreach Team from PRS for Music.
Andy has been active in the music industry for over 30 years. During that time he’s been involved with music publishing, A&R, artist management, fund raising, marketing, communications and music education. His current role, leading the Education and Outreach team at PRS for Music, allows him to bring all of these strands together, helping music creators better understand PRS and its role; what it is, what it does, how and for whom, while at the same time signposting some of the ways in which aspiring music creators can generate an income and develop a career.
This session will be held on 31 May 2018 at 6.30pm at Blitz. Drop us a mail on firstname.lastname@example.org to book your free place.
