Vampr Strikes Partnership With Music Victoria

Vampr Strikes Partnership With Music Victoria

A new partnership will see Music Victoria members gain access to the Vampr music business essentials course.

It consists of 53 lessons and 17 hours of content, with deep dives into management, record contracts, NFTs, mental health for musicians, the folk market and team building.

“Ultimately, we want artists and creators to have the tools they need to excel,” Vampr co-founder Josh Simons said.

“I am excited to streamline that process and offer world-class education for all levels within the industry.”

Music Victoria members get a free six-month subscription to Vampr Academy, valued at $130.

They also access exclusive Vampr Academy interviews with industry experts, live Q&A sessions, a free subscription to all Vampr Pro features, and more.

“Professional development comes in all shapes and sizes and this is just another offering from Music Victoria to ensure that the music industry can continue be better at what we do,” Music Victoria CEO Simone Schinkel said.

Vampr, which started out in Melbourne in 2015 before expanding its headquarters to Los Angeles, is a network where creatives from 150 countries find each other to collaborate and monetise the results.

Earlier this year it set up Vampr Academy for creatives to better understand the music market.

The course is run by entertainment attorney Prof. Andrew Watt who lectures in the Business of Music at the University of Melbourne.

He’s been an artist manager, venue owner, tour promoter, street press founder and music publisher.

He is also the author of four editions of the textbook, “Welcome to the Jungle – Navigating the Music Business”.

“I’m excited to see Music Victoria members accomplish great things with the knowledge provided and we are proud to help up-skill Victorian musicians to build their capacity to achieve sustainable careers,” Watt states.

The new Music Victoria/ Vampr is applauded by other skills-developing associations like The Real Songwriters of Melbourne which was set up in 2014 by artist/entrepreneur Jena Marino to lift the bar for songwriters through live performances, networking events, professional development and artist services.

“The Vampr program is a great way for artists to understand the music business side of the industry,” Marino emphasises.

“Andrew’s extensive experience in music law and knowledge of legal aspects of the industry, such as music copyright and publishing, is invaluable.

“These are subjects that need to be spoken about more.

“I would definitely recommend Vampr Academy to anybody who is looking to upskill in any areas of the music industry that they don’t feel confident about.”
