CMU Insights has today announced a special series of webinars for music people during lockdown providing insightful, easy-to-follow, super-timely guides to music rights, music marketing, the digital market, record deals, and much more.

Each session will be led by CMU’s Chris Cooke, who says: “We’ve had webinar versions of our music business training courses for a while now, but since the COVID-19 lockdown began we’ve been approached by numerous people looking for extra opportunities to learn online. Which is why we’ve put together this special series”.

“Each webinar will be punchy, timely and really easy to follow, with opportunities to ask questions about the topic being discussed”, he goes on. “We’ll also include a five minute summary of the biggest music business news story of the day, helping people stay connected to the wider music industry while everyone is working remotely”.

Nine Lockdown Webinars are on sale as follows:

For this special series, CMU has cut its training prices in half to make the webinars as accessible as possible. Further discounts are also available for bulk-buy bookings and premium CMU subscribers.

Cooke concludes: “Hopefully lockdown will be over as soon as possible, so artists can get back on stage and into the studio, fans can return to their favourite venues and record shops, and the music industry can rebuild. Having a workforce that understands the ins and outs of the wider music business – and is fully up to speed with all the latest industry developments – will really benefit that process. And that’s where we hope our Lockdown Seminars can help”.
