MAKING MUSIC OUR PROFESSION CONFERENCE IN DC NOVEMBER 10th
DCCN (DC Cabaret Network - http://www.dccabaretnetwork.org/ ) joins SAW (Songwriters' Association of Washington - http://www.saw.org/ ) to bring the music industry, senior officials from all 3 performing rights organizations (ASCAP, BMI, and SESAC), to DC to feature "Making Music Our Profession - Can We Quit Our Day Jobs?" on Saturday, November 10th, at the DC BAR ASSOCIATION (1250 H Street NW, Washington, DC), from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm.

Representatives from all three Performing Rights Organizations will present an outstanding panel discussion on becoming a professional in the music business. Panel members will include ASCAP's Assistant VP of Musical Theatre and Cabaret, Michael Kerker, and Director of Membership and Creative Affairs, Jason Silberman; BMI's Senior VP of Government Relations, Fred Cannon; and SESAC's VP of Writer Publisher Relations, Linda Lorence Critelli. These experts will have an interactive discussion with our region's songwriters on "how to make it in the music industry," covering the following:

1. What's a realistic goal for you? What are the odds of success?

2. How to gauge your audience - what do they want to hear and what will they buy?

3. Do you need an agent, manager, or anybody to help? Can you do it all yourself?

4. How to NOT get ripped off.

5. Do independents have a chance to get on radio or have songs in movies and on TV?

6. How has the internet changed the music industry?

7. How can the Performance Rights Organizations (PROs) help you? Why are there 3 PROs? Which one should you join?

8. What is the state of the record industry and what are the issues that will affect songwriters and artists?

Cost for the seminar is $30 for members of SAW, WAMA, NSAI, BSA, and DC Cabaret Network, $40 for non-members, and $20 for students. Advance registration is highly recommended to reserve your spot. However, walk-ins are welcome if space is available.
