PRS for Music and the Musicians’ Union are visiting Oxford to host a free event for local songwriters and composers. Following a string of successful panels nationwide last year, ‘How to Develop Your Career and Make a Living From Music’ will take place at The Jericho Tavern, on Monday 20 February.

Music industry professionals with hands-on experience from across the business will explain the importance of protecting your music rights, as well as gaining knowledge about the business behind musical creativity, and understanding the various ways that creating music can generate an income.

Whether seeking a career in music composition, song writing, production, publishing, or management etc., anyone involved in the art of music can learn about the business and how to reap financial rewards from their creative talent.
