Most of us get into music through passion. We don’t start by thinking about how to build a business, we mostly think about making music and then trying to connect with people out there. The fact is that the minute you get paid for what you do, you have started a business whether you intended to or not. But what does it actually mean to start as a business? What is involved, what are the costs and how do you make money? Also, how do you develop a sense for business without compromising your artistic vision – can you have both? The earlier you think about these things, the more likely you are to succeed. This panel will offer insight and practical advice to getting started as a Creative Business in music in the 21st Century.
