Everyone has heard the saying ‘Opportunity knocks’ right?  When you hear that you think ‘Where’s the base drop?’ Well you are a prime candidate for the Welcome to the Jungle workshop.

Join Andrew Watt a Seaford based entertainment and media lawyer, writer and educator.  He has just written and released an anecdotal textbook entitled Welcome to the Jungle – Navigating the Music Business in Australia.  Written for the Australian music industry.  Andrew combines unprecedented interview material with his own firsthand experience as an artist manager, venue owner, lawyer, publisher & music business lecturer, Andrew Watt has compiled an invaluable guide to the Australian Music Industry that is an essential reference for music business students, artists and people already working in the industry.

Currently Andrew practices law for Melbourne media and intellectual property firm Gibsons Solicitors, writes about music and the music business for The Age, Sydney Morning Herald, Rhythms and The Music Network and lectures in music business at JMC Academy.

Opening the door.   This is the workshop that you may not want to miss! If you are a musician, music student, tertiary student studying Music Business, artist wanting to understand the industry or you have a dream to work in the industry this workshop could help you get a foot in the door. “It would be impossible for an artist of industry student to get access to all the key people in the industry for a one-on-one download of their knowledge and experience”, said Andrew Watt. “Welcome To The Jungle – both the book and the workshop – bridges that gap and it’s fantastic that the Frankston Arts Centre was able to bring this Workshop to Cube 37”

To celebrate the launch of the book Andrew is holding a special Workshop event in Frankston on Sunday 22 June at Cube 37 Frankston Arts Centre. Tickets are $25.00 inc GST. Workshop bookings can be made at  thefac.com.au or on 03 9784 1060.
