Announcing the relaunched Intermediate Course


Following an incredibly successful year of four sold-out Induction Courses and two sold-out Specialist Seminars, the MPA is relaunching one of our most popular training courses. We are pleased to announce the revamped Modern Music Publishing Practice: The MPA Intermediate Course.

The course is a direct step-up from the Induction Course, which gives an overview of the music publishing business and is aimed at those just starting out in the industry. It will give a more in-depth look at the music publishing business and will expand on topics explored on the Induction Course but in a more interactive way with workshops, case studies and panels.

Unlike any other course, the Intermediate Course will provide more extensive training for people who are at the mid-level stage in their career in music publishing. It is for people seeking to refine their existing knowledge and gain a more hands-on, practical understanding of the publishing business.

We last ran this course in 2017 alongside our sister organisation the Music Managers Forum (MMF). We are continuing to partner with the MMF for the 2018 course and are offering all MMF members a discount on tickets.

The course will be split into five sessions, across three months at the beginning of 2019 from 28th Jan to 25th March. You will be able to book onto all five sessions (MPA Members receive a discounted rate) or individual sessions. Each session will cover a different aspect of music publishing, view the full programme below. You can find more details on each session here.

  • Session 1 –The Music Publishing Context
  • Session 2 –Music Publishing Contracts
  • Session 3 –Music Copyright Essentials
  • Session 4 –Music Publishing Licensing & Revenue Collection
  • Session 5 –Music Publishing Creative Exploitation

The course will be run by Dennis Collopy (IP and Music Rights Researcher, Music Publisher, Artist Manager). Dennis’ music industry career spans 40 years, including stints at Chrysalis Music, RCA Records, Riva Music, BMG Music Publishing, EG Group and a spell at Big Life Music before finally establishing his own firm Menace Music. He has also served on the board of a number of music industry bodies including the PRS and the MPA.
