This workshop will look at tools, strategies, and tips on how to build and maintain a loyal and active fan base.

Rachel Stone has been involved in Manitoba’s music industry in one way shape or form for over 25 years. She has worked at Manitoba Music in communications and membership under different titles for over a dozen years, currently as association and communications manager, and recently participated in the BreakOut West Winnipeg Host Committee and We Speak Music Marketing Committee. Stone also has fond, distant memories of previous work at Stylus Magazine, West End Cultural Centre, Uptown Magazine, and volunteering at CKUW 95.9 FM, Winnipeg Folk Festival, and more. In her spare time, she is often asleep or complaining about not being asleep.

The MusicWorks DIY Series offers developing artists and industry, as well as veterans looking to update their skills, the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of the music business. The series starts with the music business fundamentals that everyone needs to master – bio writing, radio play, mastering social media, touring, and understanding copyright -- and ends with planning a release, showing how each of these pieces fit together to create a cohesive strategy.

Members can register in advance HERE for all six workshops in The DIY Series for only $45 (a 25% discount).
