With the growth of digital and social media, and infinite marketing choices, indie artists and companies have more resources than ever before at their disposal to shape their own business. This session brings together all the building blocks from the fall season of the The DIY Series, and will help you understand the tools necessary to plan, promote, and adhere to the ever-important 18-month album cycle.

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).
