“In the nine months since our last seminar/workshop series, there have been even more changes within the global musical landscape. As a result, there is a greater need for a considered understanding of where an artist or band can fit within it,” says event organizer Manu Taylor.
You’re The Future Of Music allows the attendees to strengthen their ideas through sharing and debate, and learn from each other's experiences, in the process leaving the sessions with a measured perspective of pragmatic optimism, and the tools required to begin the journey towards the next stages of their careers in the music industry.
You’re The Future Of Music has two intakes, each with 10 places available.
