Make money from your music! This course teaches you about the different “Income Streams” that’ll transform your inspiration into capitalization!
In this second course in our Music Business series, Dr. Paul Bissell teaches us about the financial firepower waiting to be unleashed by simply knowing about Mechanical Royalties and Licensing. You’ll understand the all important facts and implications of getting a royalty deal or getting a flat fee for your hard work! You’ll learn about the Four Income Streams and how they are collected and divided between between the artist, composer and publisher.
From there Dr. Paul plows into the power of publishing. He explains the differences between being your own publisher and/or landing a publishing deal so you can decide what path works best for you. Next you learn about Advance and Recoupment and all the different kinds of royalty deals that can be constructed in this crazy business!

Super informative and interesting side to the business I never knew about. Really good to know.
Very useful information involving details with a record contract! This course explains all of the details very well!
Knowledge is a blessing many aren't blessed with. The information is put given in a clear concise style of teaching.
Well, not easy stuff in this one but it is very well explained. I will certainly have to redo some parts of this course to fully understand but this is not due to the teacher but to complexity of the subject.
I never thought that i would have so much fun watching this course at all. it is really intense. i suggest that whoever is interest in things like this so watch it & take it in. Thats if you are that serious about it.
Another very informative course in the music business series. I learned a lot and looking forward to the next class.
