A Modern Music Publishing Practice: The MPA Intermediate Course (All 5 Sessions)

Event Overview

The MPA Intermediate course will provide a more in-depth look at the music publishing business and will expand on topics explored on the MPA 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.

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 or individual sessions. Each session will cover a different aspect of the music publishing business, from Sync and Grand Rights, to Legal and Print Publishing. The course programme can be viewed below.

The course will be run by Dennis Collopy (IP and Music Rights Researcher, Music Publisher, Artist Manager).
