Drawing on topics from earlier DIY Series workshops, this session will provide a condensed intro to the fundamentals of the music business. With topics including bio writing, social media, college radio, touring, rights management, and album cycle timelines, this discussion will be an update and refresher for participants from this past fall’s DIY Series, and a chance for new participants to catch up and prepare for this season’s events.
