Digital: Connect Webinars – DIY Music Marketing for Beginners

The final webinars of the Digital:Connect programme are now taking bookings!

Want to learn more about how to promote yourself and your music?  Want to be part of a Drake Music compilation album?

Following feedback from Disabled artists, we are providing 2 online learning sessions dedicated to knowing your brand, raising your musical profile and getting your music heard.

Join us for two connected sessions, designed for Disabled musicians who are early-on in their musical journey. These interactive, accessibly-paced workshops will offer an overview of DIY music promotion.


The sessions will combine learning with doing. You will be supported to create your biography as an artist, or to find the words to describe your sound.

We will also look at what makes a good artist image, tips for social media and where you can distribute your music for free.

In addition to the practical learning, we will invite everyone who participates to be part of a Drake Music compilation, released on leading music platform Bandcamp.

You will come away with:

  • Understanding of your image/brand as a musician
  • Your biography as an artist
  • Text to describe your music/sound
  • Feedback on your artist profile photo
  • Ways to improve your online presence
  • A track on Drake Music’s Tracks & Demos Compilation

Who is involved?

The session will be led by Anders and Becky Morris Knight who are arts marketing freelancers and work regularly with Drake Music. They have a background in music & gig promotion and running an independent record label. The session is facilitated and supported by creative facilitator Abigail Ward.

Info, access and booking:

We are looking for musicians to sign up to both Part 1 and Part 2 of the DIY Music Marketing for Beginners webinar:

  • Part 1 – Wed 24th March, 6pm-7.30pm
  • Part 2 – Wed 31st March, 6pm-7.30pm

It will be paced accessibly, with breaks, and we will send you a schedule and slides in advance so that you can prepare for the day.

We are asking for a little more info than usual to book your place, so that we can make sure the session is relevant and accessible for everyone.  We are also asking if you have a recorded track, so that we can include you on the compilation.
