Seattle, WA 98103
206 634-1142
Price: $50.00

Fellow composer/songwriter/music creator:

A lot of musicians have been asking if I will be teaching another class on music licensing...

"How to Make Money Licensing Your Music to TV and Movies!"
This is a new workshop for composers, performers, songwriters and anyone interested in getting their music in media.    Rather than teaching a large class, as I have done before, I thought it might be fun and useful to teach a smaller, more intimate class in my teaching studio (under 10 people).  The class will go over basics of licensing your music, but also include listening to your tracks, and screening them, like music supervisors, libraries and pitching organizations, like TAXI, Broadjam, etc., do.  

When:  Friday October 26, 2012, 9am to Noon. (Afterwards you are welcome to join me for lunch as a follow-up!)

Where:  Ed Hartman Percussion Studio (back of The Drum Exchange, 4501 Interlake Ave North, Suite 7, Seattle, WA 98103 http://drumexchange.com)

* You should bring:  Notebook. CD or jump drive with 1-3 mp3 songs/compositions  (optional - You do not have to bring any music.  We are just using the music to get an idea of what music industry people are generally listening for.)

* You will receive:  A handout about the material, with industry contact information.

* Cost:  $50.00  (cash, check, credit card) - For comparison, I generally charge $50/hour for private instruction, so this class is a great deal for 3 hours!

* Registration:  Please call or email (edrums@aol.com).  The class is payable in advance.  The size of the class is limited, so please let me know as soon as possible.  If you are interested, but can't make this class, I may schedule another in the future.  Also, I can teach the material individually one-on-one.  
Here's a general description of the class:

Do you have a home studio?  Do you have original music sitting around on tape, LP's, CD's or your computer?  Right now, you can be pitching your music to television shows, film, and media (web, phone, games, etc.) Every kind of instrumental and vocal music is in-demand.   You can make money and advance your career at the same time.

Do you have original music sitting around on tape, LP’s, CD’s or your computer?  Would you like to make money with any type of music you might already have, or are currently creating?  Instrumental and vocal music from all styles is being used by television, movies and media (web, phone, games, etc.)

Central Washington University (CWU)
How to Make a Living Playing Mallet Instruments - Time: TBA
Music Building TBA
Ellensburg, WA
(509)963-1618
Price: Free
Ed Hartman presents a clinic about the many ways a percussionist can earn a living performing on mallet instruments. Using a concert marimba and an array of percussion instruments, Ed is able to create a one-man band, and perform music from around the world for a variety of audiences and situations. Mallets instruments (marimba, vibraphone, bells and xylophone), historically have been used in orchestras, jazz and pop groups, theatre, and solo recital performance, yet most professional percussionists have no idea how to create a career playing them. Tremendous opportunities are all around percussionists everyday, from school performances to public and private events. What Ed can show you is how to get very creative, and find ways to get paid making music.
