Ruben Ramalheiro

We're very happy to have Manitoba Music's very own Ruben Ramalheiro joining us this Wednesday, February 25 for our next DIY Series: Bookkeeping & Music Business Admin.

Ruben Ramalheiro has been heavily involved in the music scene for longer than most people think he’s actually been alive. A Red River College grad with a diploma in Business Administration, he worked his way from intern to staffer at legendary label and management company, Smallman Records, in 2006. In 2007, he started working with international touring acts as a promoter representative for The Union Ltd, where he continues to work. He co-produced JUNOfest in 2014, wrangling 125+ Canadian bands onto Winnipeg stages. Since 2010, Ruben has also worked at Manitoba Music as program coordinator, dealing with program applications, event logistics, and more. Ruben cares a lot about live music, the artists who play it and the halls they play it in, and has been a passionate West End Cultural Centre board member since 2012. He also really likes air drumming at his desk.  

About the Workshop
For anyone working in music, understanding day-to-day business activities is essential. This workshop will cover common financial issues from daily bookkeeping to cash flowing a tour, organizational strategies for keeping your business affairs in order, and administrative tasks such as filing with SOCAN or applying for a visa.

The MusicWorks DIY Series is a stream of workshops offering emerging artists, music companies, and veterans looking to update their skills, the opportunity to learn music business fundamentals. The 2015 session kicks off with important topics that everyone needs to master including an intro to the music business, accounting/administration, strategic development, the new EPK, and creating a cohesive publicity strategy.
