Band Agreements Workshop
10.00 – 10.45am
When you are in a band it is important to have an agreement which specifies who owns what, who gets what and when. Although it might seem a very formal way of dealing with your fellow band members, it’s a way of protecting your interests and avoiding disputes. This session aims to give a brief overview of the key issues you should cover in any band agreement.

APRA Songwriting Masterclass with Jarrad Brown (Eagle & The Worm)
12.00 – 1.30pm
APRA is proud to provide eight lucky songwriters with the chance to join a hands-on Masterclass focussing on songwriting and arranging skills. APRA holds events throughout the year to assist and encourage songwriters right across Australia. Jarrad Brown, Songwriter/Arranger/Producer, Eagle and the Worm: “Writing a song is a sweet activity. It can be meaningful or pointless. Doesn’t matter either way. Both good. For me; there is no such thing as writing a hit, writing for radio, or writing for anything really. Writing a song is about you and your guitar, or you and your manuscript/band/midi sequencer/lyricist/collaborator. It’s not really about anything else…writing songs – sweet times. Get into it.”

Applications for this session are now closed.
