Introduction to Industry Masterclass

Saturday, 7th June 2014

10:00 - 17:00

Generator, Cluny Annex, 36 Lime Street, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 2PQ


Our brand new ‘Introduction to Industry’ Masterclasses offer a full day of interactive conversation, discussing every element that makes up the Music Industry in 2014. Whether you’re a brand new artist, or an experienced business head looking to freshen up your understanding of the Music Business, this course will help you understand the complexities of the ‘music map’ through guided conversations, rather than being taught from the front of a room. Some of the things that we will cover include:

  • Publishing & Sync Industry
  • Record Labels & Talent Development
  • Management
  • Digital Aggregators & Distribution
  • Merchandisers
  • Marketing


To ensure attendees get exactly what they need from the sessions, they are limited to 8 per session. However, we will be running them regularly throughout the year.

Places at this event are priced at £59 per place, or FREE OF CHARGE for artists or businesses from the North East of England, thanks to our ERDF funding.*

The event on 7th June is now fully booked but to register your interest in a session, please fill in the following webform.
