A new season of training courses has been announced by CMU Insights, the training and consultancy side of the CMU operation.

Bookings are now being taken for seven new courses, all due to take place in June and July. Four of those courses come together as one programme, called ‘The Music Business In 2013’, which provides a complete overview of the modern music industry over four Wednesday afternoons from 19 Jun – 10 Jul, or two weekends in July.

Each part of the programme Рincluding an overview of the industry, a focus on music rights, a focus on promoting music, and a final session on direct-to-fan and artist deals Рalso works as a stand-alone course, so trainees can pick and mix the courses relevant to them, or take in all four at the special price of £295.

In addition to the ‘Music Business In 2013’ programme, additional courses have been announced on ‘Social Media & Fan Engagement’ and ‘Marketing, Metrics, Analytics & Advertising’, plus there’s another edition of the advanced copyright session ‘The Music Rights Business In 2013’.

Commenting, CMU Business Editor and Insights chief Chris Cooke said: “In this ever changing industry it’s more important than ever for music business professionals to have a better understanding of their sector, both the specific area where they work, but also the wider industry too. Of course everyone is really busy, and budgets are tight, but we find that our cost-effective in-depth half-day courses work for everyone looking to expand their knowledge and catch up on the latest developments in this business of music”.
