ProDev Educational Opportunities

Saturday, April 26

The Historic Armory Building
314 East Mountain Ave., Fort Collins, CO 80524

Both the workshop and the panel are FREE (no wristband required)!

Songsmithing with Michael Kirkpatrick
11:30 AM - 1:30 PM

Description: We are creating a space where we can get feedback from other writers on new songs in their early stages while getting to know other writers in the area.  A little community building and a song-workshopping for that ass! Bring a new song--finished or not, share it, and hear other songwriters impressions.  This is not a performance, this is not a group writing session. This is a safe environment to share your work and receive critical analysis from unique peers and ears.

Music management, more than ever, can be the assistance necessary to establish an artist’s career.  A panel of Colorado-based music managers will share their experiences, perspectives and recommendations, in working with developing and established artists regionally, nationally and internationally. Learn what they do for artists, how they do it and what it takes to secure and maintain a professional manager. The terms and purpose of a management contract will also be reviewed.

Panel members:

  • Ken Abdo, Esq.-Lommen Abdo Law Firm,  Moderator, Minneapolis/NYC
  • Alicia Karlin- Madison House Management, Boulder
  • Rob Gordon- United Interests, Boulder
  • Coop- Smash Music Management, Denver
  • Bart Dahl- 7 S MGMT, Denver
