  • Making Money With Music, Thursday, June 28th, 7-9PM @ Brooklyn Music School 126 St. Felix Street, Brooklyn, NY 11217

Each talk will cover different topics (see the descriptions below), so you can join multiple talks to get even more info. As always, we'll stick around after the event to answer as many of your questions as possible. Last year, there were so many great questions from musicians who stayed after, we had to take questions out on the sidewalk after we got kicked out of the venues because they had to close for the night. So, join us, we’d love to meet you and see you there!
