What you are going to learn

This class is all about how bands (and any musical collaborators) work together.

In this class, we start with defining "music publishing" - it is a big topic (and has nothing to do with publishing books...). Then I'll walk you through how to set yourself up as a publisher so you can take advantage of the performing rights organizations that pay the publisher half of your earnings. I'll walk you through every step of the process and explain the logic behind every concept.

Here is a list of some of the questions we will answer:
  • Publishing
  • Co-Publishers
  • Cashing In on Publishing
  • Performing Rights Organizations
  • Getting Paid from the PRO
  • The Publisher's Cut
  • Mechanical Licenses
  • The Harry Fox Agency
  • Synchronization Licenses
  • Dramatic Licenses
  • Publisher Agreements
  • Publisher Responsibilities
  • And much, much more!

Course reviews

I love that this is thorough but not overwhelming. The structure is great, the information and the walkthroughs are great and concepts that were hazy to me before make sense in this structure. Thanks for the class!
