MPA Induction Course

The MPA Induction Course is one of the most renowned courses in the industry. Happening four times a year the course sees an expert group of panellists put the spotlight on all areas of music publishing; copyright royalties, sync, societies, legal issues and data.

Since it began, almost everyone in the music publishing industry has attended the induction course at some point and as such, this esteemed course is nearly always oversubscribed. The duration of the course is a day and a half. The MPA Pub Social, which happens four times a year, normally lands on the second day of the course, where attendees are able to network and socialise in an informal environment.

MPA Intermediate Course

The MPA Intermediate Course is a brand new course and a direct step-up from our Induction Course. The Intermediate course will provide a more in-depth look at the music publishing business and will expand on topics explored on the Induction Course. It will provide more extensive training for people who are at the mid-level stage in their career. It is for people seeking to refine their existing knowledge and gain a more hands-on, practical understanding of the music publishing business.

MPA Specialist Seminar

MPA Specialist Seminars offer professionals within music publishing and the wider industry the opportunity to gain valuable and in-depth knowledge on specialist topics over the course of a day. Previous topics have included; How to Grow a Publishing Company, Copyright, Digital, Royalties & Tracking, Sub-publishing and Global Licensing & the Changing International Landscape.
