Hosted by Sound Connections 

In the current climate of uncertainty, individual musicians and music educators are having to rethink the way they work, in some cases in an online environment, and consider how their ‘business’ may function beyond the pandemic when live activities resume.

Whether you want to set up a project or business, work with children and young people in a range of creative settings or monetise musical and creative skills, this session is open to all. Get Business Ready is geared towards helping musicians and creative practitioners strike a balance between creativity and sustainability.

This is a rework of our live Get Business Ready course. It is designed for individual musicians, music educators and musically-inclined creatives to support with growing your practice and business.

All participants will receive a one-to-one, 30-minute development needs analysis / peer mentoring session with a mentor during the weeks following the course.
