A&R Workshop for Producers – USA




Home » Marketing, Promotions & Development Services » Management & Development Consultations » A&R Workshop for Producers – USA


A&R stands for “artist and repertoire.” Typically part of a record label’s team, the A&R rep plays an important role in the development of the artist. The rep has a voice in how the band or artist will market its albums and will help to build a basic promotional foundation for the album and the band.

Are you a small, independent record label with artists or bands in need of development, but you have no A&R?

TMA offers an A&R Workshop for Producers EXCLUSIVELY for small independent producers and their artists. The workshop provides the producer with the tools to develop his indie artists just like major labels.
