Windsor Music Scene 101 workshop for bands

Workshop presenter Murad Erzinclioglu has been there.

He's not only music director at CJAM 99.1 FM and co-creator of the Harvesting the FAM Festival in Windsor, he's been making music in a band for eight years, and writing about it for even longer. "I wrote a column on music for our school newspaper in fourth grade," says Erzinclioglu.

Over the course of his own musical career, "People told me things to do, but they don't tell you why," he notes. Bands attending the workshop will definitely not only get the why, but the who, what, where and when, as well as guidelines, contact sheets, and "What I think is a decent tracking guide," says Erzinclioglu.

Topics will include strategies for sending your music out, how to run a radio campaign, proper CD packaging for press and more. "Attendees are going to walk away with tangible things, certain steps they can take and use to make their band more successful," Erzinclioglu explains.

Solo acts and bands are both encouraged to apply. For more information and to register online, visit:
