Located within the Manitoba Music offices at 1-376 Donald Street, Winnipeg, the Manitoba Music Resource Centre is a shared office and meeting space available for use at no charge for Manitoba Music members. See the Resource Centre page for more information.
Manitoba Music members can access our experienced and knowledgeable staff and colleagues for career consultations on a variety of music business topics, including grants and funding, marketing and promotion, digital strategies and advertising, touring and showcasing, export-readiness, building a team, strategic planning, rights and royalties, and more. Consultations are intended for general information and direction.
Please note that this is not a demo-listening session and we aren’t able provide referrals or recommend or personally connect members to industry. Our goal with consultations and other training opportunities is to help members build their skills and resources to make those connections and decisions on their own

Please be sure to arrive on time. Bring your questions and be prepared to take notes.
Consultations will be approximately 30 minutes in length and take place in-person, over the phone, or via Zoom by arrangement.
