Throughout 2018 we will deliver a project funded by PRS Foundation, engaging 20, developing / emerging level music creators from Yorkshire in an artist development programme led by established professional music creators, allowing participants to learn directly from current industry professionals. These creators will typically be at the developing and emerging stages of their career, and will be already potentially playing gigs, releasing demos and have a basic web presence, so this programme aims to refine these existing practices and fill knowledge gaps to support their transition from being ‘hobbyists’ to professionals.
Participants will develop their knowledge of music production to industry standards, creating higher quality videos, self-promoting using online tools and radio, managing royalty collections, and generating revenues by taking music to market via digital platforms. Each act will also produce or master a recording to release quality and then release the recorded music.
This support will be structured around group and one-to-one sessions and ultimately enable the participants to reach wider fan-bases to sell music to, access better quality gigs and achieve greater media / radio exposure to build their profile supporting short and longer term development.
