Pennsauken, NJ (May 11, 2006)–Disc Makers is expanding its seminar series by introducing the “Disc Makers’ Road Show,” a series of instructional seminars aimed at independent musicians that will take place in cities across the country. The first leg of the Road Show seminar series entitled “The In’s and Out’s of Making The Perfect CD” will kick off the week of May 23rd with events in Washington DC, Boston, Miami, Denver, and Phoenix.
The events are open to any artist on a first-come, first-serve basis, and will begin at 6:30 p.m. and run through 8:00 p.m.
Disc Makers developed this series of instructional seminars to properly educate musicians and filmmakers of the most efficient and effective ways to execute their CD and DVD projects. The events allow participants to meet and greet Disc Makers staff and learn from the pros about topics ranging from manufacturing, mastering and artwork to promotion and distribution.
The Road Show is a follow-up to Disc Makers’ seminar series launched in late 2005. Hundreds of indie musicians have participated in interactive lectures on disc production and marketing at all the company’s storefront locations in New York City, Los Angeles, Berkeley, Chicago, Atlanta, Puerto Rico, Seattle, and the Disc Makers’ headquarters outside Philadelphia.
“Since we began bringing these instructional seminars to our storefront locations last fall, the response from our customers and the local artist community has been overwhelming,” explained Tony van Veen, Disc Makers’ executive vice president of sales and marketing. “Making a CD or a DVD can be a complex, somewhat intimidating experience if you’ve never done it before. There are many areas where something can go wrong, which can negatively affect your music career. We’re happy to share our design, printing, mastering, and manufacturing expertise to help artists complete their projects quickly, without unpleasant surprises.”
The seminar will cover such topics as disc format and packaging options, tips on preparing an error-free Master, ideas on artwork preparation and many other important issues to ensure a smooth CD and DVD manufacturing experience.
