Following the massive success of the How to Make Money From Your Music and How to Market and Promote Your Music seminars, the Music Managers Forum Aotearoa, in conjunction with Recorded Music NZ, NZ On Air, and Tauranga City Council Creative Community Scheme are returning to the Bay of Plenty with a new upskilling seminar for the music community to learn more about Record Labels and Publishing Companies.

In this seminar, musicians can learn the difference between major and indie record labels, the different contracts that are available, what a publishing company can do for you as a writer and so much more!

The expert panel will be made up of:

MMF Seminar Feedback
The MMF seminar was excellent. I think I learned more in that 2 hours about the subjects covered than I have in the last 10 years. The speakers were informative, interesting and willing to share their vast knowledge and experience. I took away several valuable pointers which we, as a band, will implement immediately. Thank you! Merran Dixon

MMF always delivers great seminars the information is relevant and gives insight to what is required when striving to become a successful New Zealand artist or band. The panel is always giving and willing to impart wisdom, experience and knowledge enabling artists to see the bigger picture when it comes to the music industry and what is required from artists to further their careers.
