Speaking live from New York, music industry writer and entrepreneur Lisa Occhino will present the opening talk of the series, outlining the key considerations for musicians performing online.
Lisa’s talk will offer practical advice to enable musicians to make strategic decisions around their digital output, touching on questions such as ‘What type of content can musicians stream? Why should you do it? What are your goals? Where are your audience and how can you reach them? How is it different to ‘real life’ performance? What’s to be gained or lost? What does successful streaming look/sound like?’ This presentation will both explore where new trends are leading the music industry and highlight elements of best practice for musicians performing online.
Seminar is free, advance registration required.
