We had a great workshop last night! Special thanks to Karina Frost Moreno for hosting us and to Marti Amado Corr from Amado Music for speaking to the group on the topic of music licensing. We learned so much about production music companies.
Marti shared some advice for songwriters on how to partner with producers and break into the world of writing for production music, plus she also gave some tips for backing musicians on how to go about finding session work with local producers.
Thank you to our workshop sponsors for helping us continue to offer awesome and affordable educational resources for our members! If you'd like to help us with this mission, please consider becoming a sponsor!
