10.30-1.00pm: Making Sense Of How The Music Industry Works (£20, £25, £30)
If the music industry seems like a hazy maze to you, then this course is for you. It’s aimed at a mixed group, from budding to experienced practitioners who want to have a better idea of how the various music industry elements work.

1.30-4.30pm: Preparing A Music Business Plan Workshop (£30, £40, £50)
A business plan is not only for making loan or grant applications. Even if you have loads of money, it’s important to have a business plan, because it allows one to “road test” a business idea in advance of committing resources, financial or otherwise. This course shows you what you need to know in order to write a music business plan for career or business development (if you aren’t too sure about your options or how the industry works, the morning course is recommended). You are welcome to bring your business plan draft on paper or laptop to develop it in class. A pre-formatted cash flow forecast file is provided
How far can a grand (£1000) get you? If you think you can create a viable music industry project or business with a maximum of £1000, then you can submit business proposal (a maximum of 4 A4 pages, £1 registration): A Music Business For A Grand Competition 2015
