Save money on Music Tank's Road To Tour Management course

News: 2nd December 2015 by Louise Dodgson under Live, Music Training & Careers

Whether you want to be a tour manager (TM), or you’re the manager assuming those responsibilities, or simply the only member of the band who’s got decent Wi-Fi and can liaise with the promoters (!) this one-day course will prepare you for the all the things you hadn’t thought of, and set you straight about all the things you had.
 
Tutored by manager of Mercury-nominated East India Youth & Luminaire founder, Andy Inglis, and run by pre-eminent music industry think tank and business information hub, MusicTank, this one day course promises to be essential for any tour manager in the making or band on the road.

It will be held on Monday 22nd February from 10am-6pm at University of Westminster, 309 Regent Street, London, W1B 2UW.
 
Best of all, Unsigned Guide users can get £15 off by using promo code TMC2016. For full course details and to book see the link below.
 


With tour management a role that people often fall into without any experience – indeed, most bands never reach the point of being able to afford one - it’s often left to the manager, or the least badly-organised member of the band to take care of touring business.  More than most, this is a vocation that needs someone with the right characteristics.

The Road To Tour Management debunks the myths and lays bare the dos and don’ts of effective tour management, from accounting, advancing, merchandising and sound engineering, through to international touring and festivals, border controls, visas and dealing with customs declarations.

Designed as a much-needed best-practice roadmap for tour management, this course draws on Inglis’ two decades of experience in the live sector as tour manager (most recently Savages), artist manager (2014 Mercury Music Prize-nominated East India Youth) and respected co-creator and manager of London venue, The Luminaire.
