HIGHER NOTE: WAM’s new self-managed artists workshop

7 Aug



After the resounding success of the debut Higher Ground music manager’s workshop last year, WAM is excited to announce that this year self-managed artists will have a similar opportunity in Higher Note, with applications now open for a new workshop series aimed at developing the careers of self managed acts.

Aimed at self-managed musicians in the early to mid stages of their – or their band’s – careers, Higher Note is a bespoke workshop program open to all WA-based musicians who want to take their careers to the next level. It will offer unprecedented access to career advice and networking opportunities with some of Australia’s most experienced industry representatives.

Facilitated by Scott Adam (Coordinator of Music Business CIT, ex-manager Ruby Boots) the series features presentations from Cath Haridy (manager Eskimo Joe, Adalita, Bob Evans, Jebediah, Kathryn Rollins, Kav Temperley, Tigertown), Tom Harris (Managing Director White Sky, manager The Little Stevies), Kester Sappho (Tour Manager, John Butler Trio), Dixie Battersby (EMI), Clive Hodson (Perfect Pitch Publishing) plus many others at the top of their game. Topics covered will include Strategy, Publicity & Social Media, Business Management, Touring, Legal and much, much more.

The two-day series runs from Thursday 17 – Friday 18 September at the WAM office in Northbridge. Spaces are limited and the experience one of a kind, so WAM is seeking expressions of interest via application by Wednesday 19 August COB.

Successful applicants will also be required to pay a one-off course fee of $110 (WAM members) / $160 (non-members). With so much invaluable advice on offer, this is a series not to be missed by all emerging WA-based musicians keen to find ways to excel in their music careers.
