An initiative by WAM to provide frequent and forward-thinking educational and networking opportunities for members of the WA music industry, WAM Workshops run throughout the year, often taking advantage of opportunities that arise and can be used to benefit the music industry.


Aimed at self-managed musicians and emerging managers serious about kicking their career up a level, Higher Note is a bespoke two-day workshop program. Facilitated by Scott Adam (North Metropolitan TAFE, ex-manager of WAMi award winner Ruby Boots) the two-day intensive features 10+ learning sessions presented by industry experts on everything from strategy, publicity & social media, business management, touring and much, much more.

The program provides unprecedented access to some of Australia’s most experienced industry representatives in a unique and intimate boardroom setting – allowing attendees to easily ask questions, seek personal career advice, and build valuable connections.


Established to provide support for the music community during the COVID-19 crises, Sound Check; is a series of free webinars aimed at providing practical support for members of the WA music community.

The Sound Check Series is designed to provide a free, safe, and interactive way for the community to voice their questions and receive informed advice from an Industry expert, whilst also engaging with one another. The series will be covering a range of topics, from business accounting to mental health, with additional topics introduced as the webinar series continues.

Each session, participants will join an expert for a one-hour discussion from a guest expert or panel. Each webinar includes the opportunity to ask questions and ‘check-in’ with others who may be experiencing similar struggles at this time.

WAM’s Sound Check series is free for all to join, and participants can elect to take part in one, or all of the webinars depending on their interest and availability.


WAM works alongside National and local industry organisations including APRA AMCOS, PPCA and Spotify to deliver specialty workshops addressing the needs of the WA music industry. You can stay up to date on upcoming collaborative workshops on our social media and events page.
