Webinar: Self-releasing Musicians and Composers

Learn about self-releasing your music from Matthew Whiteside

About this Event

The webinar will last 90 minutes and is designed to give a broad overview of what steps you need to take to self-release your music. I will talk about:


  • A general introduction to releasing music, digital distribution and streaming
  • Setting a realistic budget (income and expenditure)
  • Preparing for and running recording sessions
  • How to get your music on the major streaming platforms (Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer etc.)
  • Various rights and registrations that you need to know about to ultimately get paid
  • Using the artist analytics dashboards
  • The webinar will be £25 per person with a limited of 10 per session to allow for questions.


To start with I am offering two sessions at 1.30pm on 16th December and 7pm on 17th December. To book choose your date and I will send you a Zoom link in advance of the session.

These sessions will have exactly the same content.
