How to Rule the Music World

Want to be the next Flume? Think you can match it with Sia? Keen to top the charts like Tame Impala? Teachers and students are invited to take a look behind the scenes of the music industry and find out what it takes to become a hit-making songwriter, performer or producer.  

Learn about the creative and business practices of successful musicians as John Foreman hosts a Q&A with some of Australia’s leading talents including ARIA and APRA Music Award winner Ilan Kidron (The Potbelleez), producer/songwriter/DJ KLP, writer/producer Robert Conley (Montaigne, Thelma Plum, Jess Mauboy, Tina Arena, Ricky Martin) and up-and-coming artist Sonia De Pellegrin

Fresh from mentoring students around the country as part of the ground breaking APRA AMCOS SongMakers program, these experts explore everything you need to know about a career in music including: how to start a song from scratch; finding and working with collaborators; sharing and protecting your intellectual property; social media for artists; what gear to use; how to find a publisher, manager or producer (and why you need one); and how to build an international career.

Bring questions, ideas and loads of enthusiasm. Leave knowing what it takes to make it in the real world of music!

This free session is presented by APRA AMCOS for high school students and teachers. Places are strictly limited and registration is required.
