Music Business

Despite being a part of the music sector that is not visible to the general public, this is of vital importance for the operation of this industry as it is the base on which artists, bands, festivals and management agencies can grow within the music sector.

Artists

All this knowledge will help them to create artistic projects with added value to find a niche for themselves in the music market.
