#songwriter #publishing #prs #ppl

Powered by the Association of Independent Music (AIM) When you become an artist or songwriter, your focus is on your passion for music and your creative output. It can be easy to forget that you need to earn money and turn a profit in order to allow the creative juices to keep flowing. This session is perfect for helping you to refocus your mind and see your blossoming career as a small business. The quicker you get your head around this concept, the more successful you are likely to be.

Our Chair, Nina Radojewksi, Academy Coordinator at AIM, is devoted to helping young people get off the starting line with their music careers so she is perfectly placed to spill all her advice in this invaluable session. Self-management is becoming an increasingly popular option these days, but it’s certainly not the easy road. Here, you can get help understanding how starting a business works. Learn exactly what it takes, how much it costs and how to make a profit. This is also a chance to discuss how to balance your creative endeavours with your business sense, and how to cope when the two sides of your business – the creative and practical – are conflicting. With practical tips from those who have been there and experienced it, this is a must-do for anyone starting out in the music industry.
