Qualification and Professionalization in the European Music Business
Training programme for International Music Publishing: International Music Publishing Summer School.

The training programme with focus on international music publishing will take place in March 2020 in Hamburg and is developed for young professionals working in the European music industry. It is supported by Music Moves Europe and the City of Hamburg. Cooperating Partners are the Interna- tional Confederation of Music Publishers (ICMP), Chambre Syndicale De l'Edition Musicale (CSDEM) and Deutscher Musikverleger-Verband (DMV) as well as Reeperbahn Festival and the Music Cities Network. The Hamburg Music Business Association (IHM e.V.) is the organizing body.

In a four-day seminar in March 2020 (Thursday 5th to Sunday 8th), the International Music Publishing Summer School will take place in Hamburg, Germany, accompanied by networking activities and follo- wed by alumni meetings during Reeperbahn Festival 2020.

The training programme intends to provide people from all over Europe – either already active in the music publishing business or experienced career starters - with a comprehensive qualification and ad- vanced training in international music publishing. The offer is based on three essential pillars: know- ledge, networking and exchange of experience. The curriculum combines necessary information on an international level with specialist knowledge in international music publishing.

The EU-wide announced Summer School is supported by Music Moves Europe, which is the overar- ching framework for the European Commission's initiatives and actions in support of the European music sector. Additional support comes from the City of Hamburg. Cooperating partners are interna- tional organisations like the International Confederation of Music Publishers (ICMP) and Chambre Syndicale De l'Edition Musicale (CSDEM), as well as federal partners Deutscher Musikverleger-Verband (DMV), Reeperbahn Festival and the internationally acting Music Cities Network.

The International Music Publishing Summer School will be curated by music publishing experts from four different European countries. The Board of Trustees reflects the strong interest of the Internatio- nal Music Publishing Summer School to consider relevant music publishing issues in a European way. It consists of Juliette Metz, FR (Chair of the French Music Publishers Association, CSDEM), John Phelan, IE (Director General, ICMP), Götz von Einem, DE (Managing Director GSA, peermusic (Germany) GmbH), and Mette Zähringer, DK (Vice President, Iceberg Music Group).

"Publishing is the nexus point between music and the market – all forms of music require a publisher. It’s the glue of the music industry. It is as fascinating as it is complex, especially when you work on an international level in this field," says John Phelan, Director General of ICMP and Board member of the Summer School. "I can only encourage young talent across Europe to apply for this training scheme. It offers an excellent introduction to the industry, an outstanding roster of tutors and the chance to strengthen the worldwide music publishers’ network."

Application for the Music Publishing Summer School requires a CV and a letter of motivation. Partici- pants will be selected by the Board of Trustees.

The registration fee per person amounts to EUR 300 (plus VAT)* and includes accreditation to the Reeperbahn Festival 2020.
