Music Supervision and Licensing: How to Get Your Music Placed in TV, Film, Advertising and Videogames.

SONGSALIVE! CHICAGO SONG CRITIQUE WORKSHOP WITH GUEST SPEAKERS DAN KUYPERS & ERIC SHEINKOP

Now over 10 years old, Songsalive! is the world’s largest non-profit educational organization dedicated to the support and promotion of songwriters and composers worldwide. Songsalive! holds workshops where songwriters gather to share their songs, gain feedback and develop relationships within the songwriting communities we have created around the world. The workshop includes an in-the-round song critique session where writers present one song each - either on tape, CD or live - and receive professional, constructive feedback on your song by a music industry professional. (Guest speakers from various arenas of the music industry give their time to give feedback, educate and provide opportunities and insight.) This is your chance to develop your songwriting in a supportive and intimate environment, meet invaluable music industry experts, network with fellow members, and be part of your local songwriters community. Songsalive! is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting and promoting songwriters and composers worldwide.

The Songsalive! Chicago Workshop is moderated by Mary Lemanski on the second Saturday of every month, and this month our industry guest speakers, Dan Kuypers and Eric Sheinkop, will discuss “Music Supervision and Licensing: How to Get Your Music Placed in TV, Film, Advertising and Videogames.” (details below)

ABOUT CONTACTING OUR GUEST SPEAKERS IN ADVANCE OR AFTER THE WORKSHOP

Our guest speakers give their time for free to come speak to you. They all lead busy lives and are not all available to receive unsolicited correspondence or communication. It is recommended to NOT contact the speaker in advance, nor after the workshop, unless they personally want you to. That is, come to our workshop, and if during the workshop they take an interest in creating a relationship with you, then, and only then, should you further communicate. It is bad practice to assume that since a speaker has been our guest, and that you met them through Songsalive!, that they are an open door for you to contact. Please use your best and courteous judgement in making contact. Thank so much for your understanding. All upcoming Songsalive! speakers biographies can be read at www.songsalive.org/speakers. Join our email list and discussion groups at www.songsalive.org/community. Be reminded of this event by joining the eNotes discussion group on that link.

We encourage all of our artist from Chicago or that will be in Chicago in Febuary to attend this to see Dan and Eric speak and get very helpful industry advice.  Hope to see you there!
