Ding Dong, the Jingle’s Dead: Building Your Career in Commercial Music

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Fifteen years ago, songwriters and jingle writers operated in different worlds. Times have changed. Today, corporate campaigns are considered a legit way for songwriters to get their work heard and get paid well at the same time. Yet despite the sea change, most songwriters still feel walled off from the commercial music business. This panel is designed to give writers of all kinds the tools to gain access to this rewarding career path. Attendees will leave with a basic understanding of how the commercial music industry operates and feel informed and empowered enough to take meaningful steps toward creating new income streams in commercial music.
