In this roundtable, acclaimed artist Ravish Momin will examine the current trends in the business of music, outlining strategies for developing creative business models to successfully adapt and compete in a quickly changing music-industry. While the focus will be mainly on the jazz industry, the topics and strategies will be easily applicable to other genres.

The focus will primarily be on entry-level and mid-career artists, and how they'll be able to effectively leverage social-media, the internet, DIY touring, and other means of self-promotion to meet their goals. Participants will gain insight into crucial aspects of managing finances, negotiating fees and contracts, and developing leadership skills. The roundtable Q&A format encourages conversation and allows participants to engage in additional topics such as collaborating with cross-discipline artists, creating music for TV/radio/internet advertisements, other creative ways to achieve financial sustainability as a full-time musician, and address issues pertaining to selling and distributing music digitally.
