Workshops and webinars for GEMA members

Exclusively for our members, we offer topics that move music creators, online and offline. Depending on the content, the workshops are hosted by staff, members or external experts. That way, you always have the latest updates of what’s to know - with first-hand information!

We offer the following topics, among others:

  • GEMA basics, work declarations
  • Licensing and distribution
  • Music in film and advertising
  • MusicHub and digital marketing
  • Successful songwriting
  • Support programmes for music creators
