This training will offer members an opportunity to drill deeper into the best business practices to not only survive but to thrive in a rapidly changing music industry.
The following weekend, January 31, 2015, Music Yukon will host a workshop with 2-time Juno Award winning singer/songwriter, Dan Mangan titled, “The Artist’s Journey”.
