Prelude – February 2021

Dear Members,

  • At Rosalyn Dennett’s informative presentation last month, Recording? Let’s Talk Electronic Media Contracts, attendees learned that the type of contract you use can really impact the revenues and royalties/residuals you may receive from your work on various types of recording projects. If you missed it, the session was recorded (that’s kind of ironic, don’t you think?) and you can access the link by emailing the office.
  • Once you earn those dollars – and even if this stuff makes your eyes glaze over – successfully managing your finances and tax obligations is a key component for attaining/maintaining longevity in the music business.
  • So…please join us via ZOOM at noon on February 24th when Local 190’s free, online Taking Care of Business series presents Managing Finances, Taxes and More…for Musicians. Registration is easy – just send an email to the office at least one day prior to the session. More information can be found in this PDF: Taking Care of Business session 2.

Hope to see you there!
