UNCOVERING THE MUSIC INDUSTRY (article first published : 2003-06-5)

Uncovering The Music Industry In SA is a must for anyone remotely interested in the South African Music Industry.

“How many times have you heard the cry: We are being ripped off... we made no money from our last CD, but the record company made loads.How do we know what to do next time? or “Where can we go and get the correct advice??" asks a Tuerk Music representative.

Artists in South Africa are very often not prepared for the long haul in music education or the music business skills. These skills are essential for anyone who is currently in the music business or anyone about to enter the business.

Uncovering The Music Industry in South Africa should be prescribed to every artist so that they can avoid or at least look out for the pitfalls that have plagued so many individuals.

The book covers the structure of record companies, how royalties are computed and the role of the music producer. It provides advice on how to publish and copywright work, distribute music on the internet, set up your own recording studio and how to contact hundreds of major record companies. Also featured are music industry definitions, the manufacturing of CD's and Cover design and music resources as well as “what every band should know” and much more.

Author "Mark Gordon" is an international entertainment lawyer and music producer with over 20 years experience in the music industry with a special focus on the business in South Africa.

The book can be purchased for R100.00 incl tax but excluding delivery or postage if required. Phone 082 442 9095 or email hohner@hot.co.za
