We are pleased to announce that Andy Heath (MPA Board member; Beggars Group Director; UK Music Chair) is confirmed to join the panel of guest speakers to discuss “Music Publishing & The Record Business” as part of our next session to be held in the PRSfM boardroom on the evening of Monday 28th May (Module 5 of the MPA/MMF Music Publishing Professional Development Programme 2012).Joining Andy Heath in the first half of the evening are Dennis Collopy (Menace Music Management) and Flash Taylor (Perfect Songs: A&R / CreativeManager) – collectively bringing a wealth of knowledge and experience of the recording industry, music publishing and artist management to the panel.

The panel discussion covers and updates us on a whole range of practical issues regarding relationships between those working in and representing the recording and music publishing sectors in today’s music industry – at all levels: from deciding which compositions a recording artist may record,
through media & collective licensing to joint initiatives on a global basis.

We examine communications between professional team members and departments (from music publishers, record companies and artist managers) working
together to develop the careers of songwriters, composers & recording artists; plus relations between individual record companies & music publishers (both major and independent) and co-operation between the sectors to meet the challenges and opportunities presented by digital technology and communications in 2012 and beyond.

In the latter half of the evening we discuss music publishing and live performance. Additional panellists include Tim Brooke – Faber Music Ltd and a PRSfM representative.
