Training Courses

At the Music Managers Forum, we aim to support the professional development of managers throughout their careers – from brand-new managers who have taken on their first act or new staff members to those who have worked in the business for many years. The music industry is constantly changing, and music managers never stop learning.

We provide a range of training courses and workshops for managers of all levels throughout the year.

We run our core set of events multiple times per year, so if you wish to participate in an event that doesn’t currently have dates announced, you won’t have to wait long.
