How to make money from writing songs
Masterclass with David Alexander CEO of Sheer Publishing Africa

Areas that will be focused on include:

• So you wrote a song and it’s now on the radio – how do you get paid?

• How do you get the song onto a TV programme or a film or even better – a commercial?

• How much does that pay?

• How long does it take for the money to arrive in your account? What happens if it lands up on the Internet?

• Who is supposed to look after all of these things for you as a writer?

Come and hear David Alexander explain the workings of the music publishing business and how you need to protect yourself in a world where the digitisation of everything is leading to a reduction in earnings for songwriters all over the world.
