Music Managers Forum Announce New Seminars

NZ Music Managers Forum Announce
New Seminars in Waikato And Bay of Plenty

Following the outstanding success of the ‘Make Money From Your Music’ seminars the NZ Music Managers Forum, with thanks to NZ On Air and the Creative Communities Scheme in Hamilton and Tauranga, are returning to Waikato and Bay of Plenty with the essential Stage Two seminar ‘Marketing and Promoting Your Music’.

How musicians release and promote contemporary music has changed considerably in the last couple of years with an increased focus on digital. Over 70% of the New Zealand Music Industry income is from streaming, but this means that an artist is competing to have their music consumed in one big worldwide digital store. In order to cut through they need to be active across many promotional channels. With record labels signing fewer artists direct, it is important that managers and musicians learn these skills for their independent releases.

This not to be missed seminar will cover all avenues of releasing, marketing and promoting music including the various ways to release a song, EP or album, distribution – digital and physical, P.R., bio’s, press releases, tips for pitching to media, marketing, digital marketing, social media, playlists and radio airplay.
Speakers are:
Ladi 6 Independent Artist
Nicky Harrop General Manager - Rhythmethod (Independent Distribution Label)
Lisa Paris CEO - The Label (Music Marketing and PR Specialists)
Jeff Newton NZ On Air
Jenny Rudd Owner and Editor UNO Magazine
Teresa Patterson Chairperson NZ Music Managers Forum/Artist Manager

Dates and locations:
Tuesday September 11th Tauranga – Totara Street
Wednesday September 12th Hamilton – Meteor Theatre

5.30pm doors for 6.00pm start. Seminar finishes at 8.00pm

FREE ENTRY to all - musicians, self managed artists, music managers (or anyone interested in the music industry) but RSVP is essential. Email Lorraine.owen@mmf.co.nz to secure your seat. Please make sure you specify which seminar you will be attending – Waikato or BOP.
Thanks to NZ On Air, the Creative Communities Scheme in Hamilton and Tauranga and the NZ Music Managers Forum.
