Sound Advice Tour

Welsh Music Foundation and University of Glamorgan are to host the Cardiff date of The Sound Advice Tour on Tuesday 30 March, sponsored by BBC Radio 1 and Job Centre Plus. Seminars take place in the Coal Exchange from 12 noon, with a gig in the evening at Barfly (more details on link to follow).

The tour is a music industry education roadshow aimed at musicians who are in study, on the New Deal for Musicians or other similar programmes, or anyone looking to form a career in the music industry.

Musicians will receive invaluable advice from leading industry figures. Organisations which contribute to the tour include PAMRA (Performing Artists' Media Rights Association), MPA (Music Publishers Association) and the MPG (the Music Producers Guild). Topics to be covered include the creative, business and Rights and Royalties issues.

At 12 noon, 'Royalties and Income Streams' is the topic of discussion. At 1.45pm is the Business seminar at which songs, production, singles, gigs, radio, marketing, press, promotion, designs, image and festivals will be discussed. At 3.30pm the Creative seminar takes place. This will go through what makes some songs instantly catchy whilst others are easily forgotten, and also where you can find the inspiration and advice that will help you develop your songwriting and production skills.

Registration is free but spaces are limited, so early registration is recommended. Also, musicians are encouraged to submit questions for the featured panels. Details of both can be found on the Sound Advice website.
