Sound with Mike: Getting Paid in Music
Are you trying to make a living from music, but struggle with understanding what you're owed and how to get paid? Perhaps you need clarification on the different types of royalties that you can earn from your music, or, understanding what collection societies do for you and how to get paid from them, for example?
Utilising my 15 years' industry experience, I will teach you everything you need to know about music industry royalties and how to earn them, over two hours, in an interactive, discussion and task-led, environment. I have worked with over 800 creatives in the last 8 years and empowering creatives with the knowledge of how to get paid is one of my favourite parts of the work I do.
If you are new to the work I do, you are welcome to book a free, 20 minute 'Coffee' appointment with me prior to the session, if you would like to chat over any particular matters relating to your career or development as a creative (songwriter, artist, musician, producer), manager, label owner, industry executive, etc. Just head to soundwithmike.com.
Look forward to hearing from you/seeing you on the 11th October!
What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?
Closet open land parking to the venue is on Port Street, or for secure parking — the NCP on Tib St (2-3 min walk away from venue). Nearest train station to 2022 is Manchester Picadilly (5-7 mins walk). Nearest Metrolink stop is Piccadilly Gardens (Market St only 2-3 mins further walk). Nearest main bus exchange is Piccadilly Gardens where you can get a bus to most parts of the City and Greater Manchester.
What can I bring into the event?
The main thing you will need is a positive, open-minded approach! It is also encouraged that you bring a fully charged laptop or phone with you, should you wish to take notes, or use internet access as the session develops, or should we break-out into any short tasks where what you have learned is more practically applied.
How can I contact the organiser with any questions?
Can I pay on the door?
For me to be able to plan the session accordingly, I need to know how many people are defintiely the attending in advance, so unfortunately payment at the venue will not be possible, sorry!
What's the refund policy?
I am happy to offer refunds through Eventbrite for tickets cancelled up to 7 days in advance of the session.
