Los Angeles, CA, United States, 2008/10/21 - Rogue Agency North America announced this month its continuing support in artist development and education by hosting a monthly panel series and e-based learning workshop geared towards talent becoming business savvy in the entertainment industry.
The panel series kicks off on Tuesday, October 28th at the Fender® Center Museum in Corona, California entitled, “Marketing: The Artist Behind the Brand” touching on a few key topics such as “how to build your brand”, “what works and what doesn’t” “how to book more shows through branding.”
Rogue’s Alexandra Aguinaga moderates the October panelists featuring Joanne Ledesma (Educator and President of Ledesma Entertainment), John Braheny (Author, “The Craft and Business of Songwriting”), Del Breckenfeld (Author, “The Cool Factor” and Director of Entertainment Marketing, Fender® Musical Instruments Corp.) and Roli Shalem (Photographer/ Artist Development, Sony/ BMG, Universal) are just a few slated to appear on this month’s panel.
Upcoming panelists for the monthly series include industry executives, educators and artists varying from a global list of partners from EMI France, Musicians Institute (MI), Full Sail, National Academy of Recording and Sciences (NARAS), Universal Music Group, Warner UK and additional participants.
Part of the proceeds raised from the event goes to benefit the Fender Center’s Kids Rock Free® Program, an after school free and low-cost music program for kids from the ages of 7-17 seeking to learn music instruction in piano, guitar, bass, drums, vocal performance and combo-band. First incepted in July, 1998 with ten years in the making, the arts education program has served as a positive beacon for the local community bridging the gap musically.
