Musicians: How to Get Your Money

bandpakI’m excited to be teaching a class with Bandpak, a New Orleans company that offers full-service marketing and web solutions to local musicians. Registration goes to the end of the month, and you can sign up here.

This class will position yourself better for placements in Film and TV, and make sure at least something is trickling in the rest of your life and securing your family after you die. Here’s their description:

Did you know that every time your music is played (even live) you might be entitled to up to 23 royalties? You don’t even have to be the songwriter.

But did you know that just registering isn’t enough to get your money unless your metadata is perfect?

If you don’t have any idea about how to navigate the world of copyrights, registries and metadata, then you should sign up for “How to Get Your Money: Royalties & Registration, ” a comprehensive series of seven classes, where you will learn about every type of music royalty there is and how to make sure a music industry executive isn’t padding his own bank account with yours.

Whether you are a songwriter, publisher, performer, sideman, sound copyright owner, or video copyright owner, by the end of the course you will be properly set up for collecting royalties on all of your songs.

Classes will be held every Tuesday, January 7-February 18, 2014 from 1-3pm at Propeller Incubator in Mid-City.

“How to Get Your Money: Royalties & Registrations” is designed for musicians at all stages of their careers and knowledge of business and is being offered at a special introductory price of just $299. Space is limited.
