The Business of Music Management

The Business of Music Management


New trans-Tasman edition of successful business programme
now calling for applications from Australia & New Zealand

CONTROL, the dynamic five stage programme designed to assist music managers from Australia and New Zealand grow their businesses, is now calling for applications. Mid-career music Managers from both sides of the Tasman are encouraged to apply. The programme is presented by the Australian Music Industry Network (AMIN), and supported by Australian Association (AAM) and the Music Managers Forum of New Zealand (MMF NZ). Funding has been provided by the Australian Government and the New Zealand Music Commission.

CONTROL will incorporate two residential labs to be held near Sydney, the first from 23-26 November 2014. Six music and business advisers including Paul McKessar (Manager of Brooke Fraser, The Naked and Famous, Lydia Cole, Breaks Co-op) and Correne Wilkie (Manager of The Cat Empire, Jackson Jackson, Harry James Angus) will work with participants on their leadership skills and business models.

CONTROL will provide participants with practical business guidance. It will include a comprehensive review of the different business models found in the contemporary music sector, as well as deep analysis of each business model brought to the lab. This will be the first time that managers from New Zealand will also take part in the programme.

CONTROL is really a business development retreat,” said Denise Foley, Chair, AMIN. “The process challenges participants, but in a constructive way. Alumni report that it not only changes their businesses for the better, but their lives as well.”

“CONTROL was a watershed for me. It changed my working world, not to mention my outlook on work/life balance.” added Catherine Haridy (Manager of Eskimo Joe, Adalita, Bob Evans/Jebediah, Tigertown). Chair, AAM.

Well known trans-Tasman artist and music manager Tom Larkin also credits CONTROL with sharpening his business model. “Advisers were excellent and gave really good insights. I’ve been reaping the benefits for over a year and working smarter, not harder.” (Manager of Cairo Knife Fight, Calling All Cars, Strangers, The Butterfly Effect, The Sinking Teeth, The Studios In The City)

CONTROL application forms and guidelines are available from the AMIN, AAM and MMF NZ websites (www.amin.org.au ; www.mmf.co.nz; www.aam.org.au)
