Welcome to the “Musician’s Guide” Series!
This series is pulled directly from the courses I’ve created for my university position in Music Business. All of these courses are designed for the everyday musician – amateur or professional – who has little or no knowledge on the topic, but wants to master it.
This class is all about Publishing and Performing Rights, which is to say: This class is about getting paid for your music.
In this class, we start with defining “music publishing” – it is a big topic and has nothing to do with publishing books. Then, I’ll walk you through how to set yourself up as a publisher so you can take advantage of the performing rights organizations that pay the publisher half of your earnings. I’ll walk you through every step of the process and explain the logic behind every concept.
The goal of this class is for you to start getting the money that you are owed for your music.
Our Promise to You
By the end of this course, you will have learned how to set yourself up as a music publisher.
