Music Biz Tune Up

Summerfolk is proud to present the Music Biz Tune Up series to help musicians of all genres develop the business skills they need to succeed. The series is comprised of 8 workshops that will run once a month on Sunday afternoons in Owen Sound and culminates with a 2 day conference In September. Industry experts will lead the sessions to help performers learn more about publishing, promotion, grant writing, performance, touring, and other essential elements of a successful musical career. By the end of the series, participating musicians will understand that they don’t have to leave the area to have a long-lasting career.

Although the series is presented by Summerfolk, musicians of all genres are encouraged to attend. Your music might sound different but the business skills that musicians need are the same regardless of genre.

Registration for each workshop will cost $20 unless otherwise noted (the January 29th workshop is free). If you register for all workshops, you’ll receive a 25% discount. Registration for the September conference is not included in the workshop discount. More information about the conference will be available soon.
