TUNE TALK: Whatcha Wanna Know About … Music Licensing?
Would you like to make money with your songwriting?
What do you want to know? And what do you know that you can share with others? Come join the Songwriters in Seattle "Tune Talk" conversation.
Each informal session will be an open discussion among songwriters and industry professionals sharing our knowledge and experiences. This first one will be about licensing music for TV and movies.
Come ask those "in the know" how they achieved their success and share your own ideas on how to make your music-making a profitable endeavor along with its labor of love. There will be no formal presentations, but rather an informative conversation on best practices.
Our special guests will be Ed Hartman, Ken Morrison and Eric Tingstad.
ED HARTMAN - Mr. Hartman has scored music for film, television and radio and has had his music placed in movies and on HBO, NBC, ABC, CBS, PBS, among others. He teaches a course in music licensing.
KEN MORRISON - Mr. Morrison is an Emmy Award-winning TV producer and songwriter who has placed more than sixty songs in films and television shows.
ERIC TINGSTAD - SiS's own Mr. Tingstad is a Grammy Award-winning multi-genre record producer, musician and songwriter/composer.
ORGANIZERS - David Guilbault (Host), Tim Davidson (just back from the Durango Songwriters Expo) and Daniel Connolly.
The suggested registration donation of $10 will go for the continuing operations of the non-profit group, Songwriters in Seattle.
