How to build a music career while holding down a day job

The next YGN session will focus on how artists can balance their creative work with their day job, side hustle, freelancing opportunities or music education projects.

The event, hosted with Youth Music in London on 25 June, will gather speakers including singer-songwriter Abimaro, Adem Holness (Arts Council England), musician/producer Max Wheeler and Remi Harris MBE.

They will be talking about balancing a creative career with a ‘day job’, the opportunities to pursue a music career with social purpose, how to set up a freelance side-hustle and how to combine freelance and employee life successfully.

The event takes place at Tileyard Studios, Kings Cross, London, from 6pm to 9pm.
