International Music Publishing Summer School

The curriculum of the International Music Publishing Summer School combines necessary information on an international level with specialist knowledge in international music publishing. Accompanied by networking activities and alumni meetings during festivals like Reeperbahn Festival 2021, these courses give people already active in the music publishing sector the opportunity of receiving targeted training, practical tips and networking with an international focus. 

The seminar thus serves both basic and advanced training for activities in music publishing houses and associated areas in the entire media sector that come into contact with licensing rights. The content is aimed at employees in European publishing houses and media companies and independent creative professionals with a close professional connection to music publishing.
