The NZ Music Managers Forum with support from Recorded Music NZ are proud to present the annual Back to Basics seminar in Christchurch on Tuesday 11th July.

Aimed at all who are new to artist management including self managed artists, the seminar focuses on the fundamentals of the music industry and will explore the inner workings of an industry that can be very complicated for first timers.  

In the two hour seminar, topics discussed will cover; management and band contracts, setting up a management business and the business of a band, information on APRA AMCOS, Recorded Music NZ’s Direct to Artist Scheme, OneMusic, the differences between marketing and promotion, essential agencies, income and royalties, and artist management in general. 


Two experienced music managers will be presenting and sharing their indispensable knowledge and answering questions from attendees.
