Next Wednesday 11th November, the community group Time For My Music will have the monthly topic discussion via Zoom, and this time we are going to talk about copyright. Interested? Join the community and find out more!
There’s a new website that puts together all the resources made by our director Millicent Stephenson to help you out in your music career.
Millicent has gone above and beyond to provide this community and the general public with the best insights and resources to achieve success in the music industry. One of her efforts is the free booklet “Revealed: 25 Secrets Of The Successful Gigging Musician, Singer, Rapper & Spoken Word Artiste”, a concise guide full of valuable advise and key points that every aspiring artist in the world of music should know.
We are proud to present ‘Time for My Music’, the result of months of work that started with Cafemnee’s first online workshop and then grew with the community group that evolved from it. Starting next week, you will be able to join this wonderful platform that offers a space for females in music to connect, share, learn and advance themselves.
Starting today, we are going to make a monthly recap of Millicent’s podcast so newcomers can have a good overview of what has been covered so far, people who dropped the podcast at some point have an easier time coming back, and regular listeners have an index to locate their interests in a faster way.
Performance videos are an important part of electronic press kits, and they are also very delicate. Do your video reflect your skill and charisma? Do it show how you engage with your audience, what kind of challenges you can tackle? And a key point, are you able to top your video in every live performance you do?
It might sound a bit unfair (it probably is, given that we are musicians, not models) but, if you are a performer, you cannot escape the visual aspect of it all. You need a good image on and off the stage, and for that, you need a photographer.
How do you make sure you are going to forward with your music while taking care of everything else? Millicent has three tips to help you out.
Copyright is a subject that makes most people hesitate. It looks complicated, it looks bothersome, and sure, it is always better if you count with a lawyer who really knows about the acts and institutions backing it up, just to make sure you’ve got all your bases covered. However, the basics are not that hard, and knowing them will make a big difference.
Very rarely, if ever, a song is completely made by a single person. In bands, lyrics, chords and melodies come from different members, some times separately, some times during a brainstorming session. Both bands and solo artists ask for advice, second opinions, some feedback to get that spark, and more and more people get involved. How to split shares when the time comes?
