I'm a young composer, a performer starting out. Where can I complete my training? Which academy? How do I apply? I've put together an ensemble; how do it promote, develop and manage it? Do I have to enrol in a royalties society? Is paper or dematerialised publishing preferable? Can I diffuse my music freely on the Internet? How to collaborate with other disciplines? Where to diffuse my work? We shall try to answer these questions and many others that young artists ask themselves at the beginning of their professional life, in the course of a 'speed-dating' series with specialists in law, publishing, teaching, and musical production.

This day, under the aegis of SUISA and in collaboration with L'Abri Foundation, is aimed at the professional insertion of young musicians. It is open to all and, first and foremost, to participants in our academies (OSE, Vortex, Lemanic, Atelier Cosmopolite), as well as to students in Swiss graduate schools.
