EVENTS THIS WEEK
Organizing Your Music Catalogue: Why is it important and how to do it properly?
Songster Catalogue is a helpful tool designed by singer/songwriter, Michelle Pereira, for songwriters, musicians, producers and all music creators, who need a little help organizing their personal musical catalogue.
In this workshop, Michelle will go through the reasons it's important to have your catalogue organized and accessible with the information needed to help you succeed. Whether you are looking to get your songs placed in film, tv, or commercials, or if your goals involve getting a publishing or record deal, it always a good idea to make sure you come off as professional and responsible.
Michelle Pereira is a singer/songwriter originally from Toronto, Canada but has been living in Nashville, TN for the past 2 and half years living out her dreams day by day. In a town that praises co-writing, Michelle grew her music catalogue to the point where it became a bit overwhelming to keep track of, especially when she started taking meetings with publishers. After finally finding a system that worked well for getting her music catalogue organized, she decided to make a little business out of it. Thus was the beginning of Songster Catalogue, and the start of helping other music makers get just as organized as her.

Copyright vs. Trademark: What is the different and why do you want them?
Colin Maher will be conducting this seminar to help teach music industry folks the difference between trademarks and copyrights. This will include what each of them protects, why you would want to register your trademarks/copyrights, and a couple of real-life stories from the music industry about both.
Colin Maher is the founder of Whiskey Ghost Entertainment (WGE), and he is the entertainment lawyer for the new music industry. Based in Nashville, Tennessee, WGE is a hybrid company offering both entertainment law and artist management services. WGE's mantra is "Don't Get Screwed" when it comes to your music. On the legal side of WGE, Colin offers reasonable flat fees in order to allow musicians and music start ups of all sizes the ability to seek legal representation while on a budget. There are so many legal pitfalls in the music industry, and it is absolutely necessary for everyone to seek legal help before signing anything
