Dream of being a musician, manager, booking agent, or other music industry professional?
On October 21st, The Ark, the UM Center for Campus Involvement, and New Beat Happening are holding a conference at the Michigan Union designed to teach students about the music industry. The conference will last four hours and kick off with a Music 101 presentation on all aspects of the music industry by Eric Morgeson of Studio A. Students will then be able to choose two different session topics, which include a demo listening session, songwriting workshop, “How to Get and Promote Gigs”, a panel discussion with artist management, booking agents, and musicians, a workshop on how to write your own contract and negotiate show terms, and a session street marketing and utilizing social media. The schedule of workshops can be found here.
Music-Con will finish with a one-hour trade show exhibiting local music resources including recording studios, artist management, agents, talent buyers, merchandisers, radio stations and more. The trade show promises to be a great networking opportunity, have live music and some fun swag!
