CMU:DIY to co-host Urban Development’s seminars programme

By | Published on Monday 19 October 2015


CMU’s education programme CMU:DIY this week begins a new alliance with Urban Development, co-hosting the East London-based music development organisation’s Industry Takeover Seminars, the first one of which takes place at the Red Bull Studios this Wednesday evening.

CMU Business Editor Chris Cooke will provide a concise introduction to the music industry – how artists make money, and the people and companies they work with – before leading a discussion with Universal’s Jade Richardson, Coda Agency’s Mike Malak and Disrupt LDN’s Phil Kemish on the roles they play in their artists’ careers.

Cooke says: “We’ve a long tradition at CMU of supporting new artists and future music industry talent through educational initiatives. We now do this work under the standalone CMU:DIY brand, which we will be evolving and expanding in the next twelve months, allying with great organisations like Urban Development, who are supporting new talent every day”.

He goes on: “As well as seminars like this one, and our own CMU:DIY workshops, we will also be developing the CMU:DIY website, with reports on all the events we are involved in, plus a new series of mini-guides on making money from music. Any brands, music companies or industry organisations interested in supporting this work should definitely get in touch”.
