NARIP Announces Music Industry Seminars and Clinics for October
LOS ANGELES, Calif. — The National Association of Record Industry Professionals (NARIP) recently announced their seminar line-up for September and October, 2007, which includes “Art of the Music Deal” (with music biz attorneys Todd Cooper and Dina Lapolt), and “Producing Hit Songs” (with Tena Clark).
“Art of The Music Deal” Launches in Los Angeles (Sep 17 L.A., Oct 25 S.F.)
Top music biz attorneys Todd Cooper and Dina Lapolt and a cutting-edge personal artist manager (TBA), will negotiate LIVE a recording agreement. Most people think they can just hand a negotiation to a lawyer, and leave it at that. But the truth is, as a professional, you need to be aware of the process and deal points, too, and what the short- and long-term implications to your artists’ careers may be. Future agreements to be negotiated to include publishing, licensing, producer, independent distribution, merchandising, tour, management and others.
Join us and see what goes on inside the sausage factory!
