Some Kind Words About the MPA
  • “I honestly thought it was (MPA Specialist Seminar March 2018) one of the most interesting and informative seminars I’ve ever attended, so massive congratulations to the MPA for securing the speakers and putting it all on!

    Paddy Orchard
    (Copyright Assistant, Audio Network)
  • “The MPA Specialist Seminar (Part 2) greatly exceeded my expectations. I went along hoping for some useful tips for choosing sub-publishers and pitching music for syncs, but came away with so much more, including some essential new contacts. The moderators and panellists put a great deal of thought and effort into their roles, and everyone was very friendly and approachable. Looking forward to future events!

  • “At a beautiful Victorian pub in the heart of Soho, the MPA Pub Social had a welcoming and warming atmosphere. It was fantastic to see a vibrant mix of veteran members and newcomers mingling, with the MPA team making sure that everyone had a drink and met someone new. The night had a great sense of community!

  • “The MPA student membership really helped guide my career path. I learnt so much about the person I wanted to be by attending great educational events such as the MPA Induction Course. The MPA put a lot of care and attention into providing for their young members and helping grow in confidence, whether this is through regular social events or by creating the amazing YMPA, which gives young members a platform to address and question wider issues in the publishing industry. I can confidently say that it would have been much harder to break into the industry without the help and guidance of the MPA.

    (Music Coordinator, Big Sync Music ‎& MPA Student Member 2016-2018)
  • "The week of panels, site visits and networking events highlighted the great appetite there is for British independent music in the US and offered real insight into how to pitch successfully from the UK."
