PRS for Music has partnered with not-for-profit Warren Records and The Warren Young People's Project to offer a free event for local music creators.
Following a string of successful panels in Manchester, Newcastle and Sheffield last year, How To: Get Your Music Played and Paid will take place at Humber Street’s Fruit on Monday 12 June from 8pm to 10.30pm.
Music industry professionals with hands-on experience will provide guidance and help music creators gain knowledge and understanding about the music business.
Attendees will learn about the importance of protecting their music rights, as well as the various ways that creating music can help to generate an income.
The panel will be moderated by Daniel Jones, PRS for Music’s Education & Outreach manager for the North of England.
He will be joined by Andy Ellis (PRS for Music), Naomi Belshaw (PRS Foundation), Alan Raw (BBC Introducing), Pat Pretorius (The Talks/All Our Own Records) and Steve Burton (Big Fish Little Fish).
While the event is free, space is limited so please ensure you book a space online if you wish to attend. Both non-members and PRS for Music members are encouraged to attend.
Jones said: ‘This panel is designed with composers and songwriters at every point in their careers in mind – whether you’ve just written your first song or your fiftieth. As a membership organisation, PRS for Music doesn’t just collect royalties on your behalf; we’re also here for creators to turn to for advice and education on the music business.’
