You will learn:
How do they interact with major labels, indie labels and artists?
What persuades them to add a record?
How do they like new music?
How to level the playing field with major labels?
Fan development and interaction
Also: cross-promotions, marketing tie-ins, performance opportunities at radio stations, sales, charts and more
On the heels of NARIP's successful Music Supervisor Sessions - intimate meetings with the best music supervisors in the business today - NARIP is proud to introduce its Radio Executive Sessions in the same mold.
Through NARIP's Music Supervisor Sessions, NARIP members have made placements in significant projects, including most recently Peter Kimmel who has placed songs from his catalog in True Blood ("Soul of a Man Never Dies") and in Dexter ("Jhaira") following our session with Gary Calamar earlier this year in Los Angeles - read more about these exciting placements here.
Placements secured and professional relationships formed through these meetings are so good that we felt this format would work well for those who seek intimate pitch opportunities with the best (and busiest) radio executives at the top-rated stations in town.
LIMITED ENROLLMENT OF ONLY 15 PEOPLE PER SESSION
Limited to 15 people per session, NARIP's sessions enable you to get to know the executives and more importantly, enable them to get to know you. Participants will be able to pitch music on the spot and receive instant feedback as to whether a song is appropriate or not, and WHY. This valuable feedback makes better pitches - and ultimately, radio air time - possible. Please note: NARIP cannot guarantee that any participants' music will receive airtime.
Above all, attendees get to meet key players in the modern radio business, paving the way for future opportunities and giving them an edge in a highly competitive market.
At each NARIP Radio Executive Session in Los Angeles, participants will have the opportunity to pitch music and get immediate, direct feedback from one radio executive.
Here is what attendees say about NARIP's Music Supervisor Sessions (the same format as the upcoming Radio Executive Sessions) held earlier this year in Los Angeles:
"Thank you again for providing one of the more professional and useful events that I have ever attended. It was intimate, precise and well-executed. The feedback was immediate and valuable." - Eric Caver, PTEC Dojo (attended Andrea von Foerster session)
"Another successful and extremely well-organized NARIP event, please keep them coming! ... [it was] an amazing opportunity to pitch our music to Gary Calamar in such a personal and focused setting." - Sven Spieker, Mighty Generation Music (attended Gary Calamar, Andrea von Foerster and Chris Mollere sessions)
Very, very informative and helpful. Thes
