A Beginner’s Guide to the Music Industry

We have only 15 spaces available for this session, so that we can ensure that everyone has chance to be heard and ask questions.

In this short, accessibly-paced session we will talk about:
  • Mixing, mastering & how to prepare your tracks for release
  • Marketing yourself and your music
  • Getting on the radio, spotify playlists and understanding royalties

This will give you an overview of the industry as it is now, so you can plan your next steps with your music.

It will be led by Manchester-based producer, promoter & music educator Jack Hartshorn (Red Eye HiFi), with help from activist & musician John Kelly and creative facilitator Abigail Ward.
