"Since the Pandemic, we have been spending increasing amounts of time running individual training sessions and workshops, so the move to formalise these sessions into a structured training programme feels like a logical next step. Now our training is open to all artists regardless of their geographic location. The training sessions are self-managed so artists can pick and choose when they complete them. They also have the option to watch back these sessions over again when they need a refresh." Mark Knight (Major Labl)
Alongside the paid training course, Major Labl is providing every indie musician with access to a FREE 45-minute webinar. In this session, musicians will be provided with a practical checklist to help them plan to release music more effectively. We'll show you what to do each week in a 6-week countdown to release.
