Hear Nebraska hosts first educational music industry workshop
If you’ve ever written, recorded and released a song, we’re hosting a pair of free workshops designed to help you protect your work and be successful.
University of Nebraska College of Law student attorneys will teach “Protect Yourself and Your Music: Legal advice for musicians” in both Omaha and Lincoln. The course is open to all and will cover topics including copyright law, licensing, contracts, streaming services, performance rights organizations, and signing with agents, managers and labels.
The Omaha workshop, co-presented by Omaha Creative Institute, will be held Saturday, Nov 14, at TipTop (RSVP here). Nonprofit Hub will house the Lincoln class, co-presented by KZUM, Saturday, Nov 21 (RSVP here). Both courses will run from 1-2:15 p.m.
These workshops mark the start of a continuing series of non-concert events aimed at helping grow Nebraska musicians through education and resources. Tell us what courses you would like to see by commenting below, or emailing HN Program Manager Aaron Markley at email@example.com.

It looks to be a busier Monday night than normal, and it starts with the usual Zoo Bar lineup of the 5 p.m. Emily Bass Piano Hour and 7 p.m. Zoo Bar House Band.
Then later, Jeff Daniels and Ben Daniels Band play Knickerbockers at 8 p.m. The actor (Newsroom, Steve Jobs, Dumb & Dumber) joins his son’s Michigan-based band on the road for the fourth time. The Americana rock band just independently released Untitled EP 1 in April. RSVP here.
Also tonight, of Montreal plays The Waiting Room with Diane Coffee. Founded in 1996 by eccentric frontman Kevin Barnes, the Athens-based band released Aureate Gloom earlier this year on Polyvinyl Records, marking its 13th full-length studio release. RSVP here.
