Well, spring is definitely in the air. It's time to play some hardball and check out some more interesting networking and educational opportunities for TAXI members. So, here we go for the month of April 2007:

April

19-21 ASCAP: I Create Music
Hollywood, California
www.ascap.com/expo

This is the only national conference dedicated exclusively to songwriting and composing. Some of the guests and panelists already confirmed include such notables as Glen Ballard, Desmond Child, Alan and Marilyn Bergman, Keyshia Cole, Holly Knight, Mitch Allan, and Mark Adamo. You not only get an education, but an opportunity to submit your original songs to some of the finest writers in the land. This is a must!
21-25 Gospel Music Week
Nashville, Tennessee
www.gospelmusic.org

With an expected attendance of more than 3,000 music industry professionals and peers, this weeklong event is the mother of all Gospel gatherings. Held in Music City (where else?), you are able to hear some of the finest new gospel singers and songs and you get a chance to attend all of the educational seminars available. Whether you have a ministry or you just love the genre, this one is a classic.
23-26 Billboard Latin Music Conference and Awards
Miami, Florida
www.billboardevents.com

Why they call it the winter music conference at the beginning of spring is anyone's guess. All you need to know is that Miami Beach, over the last decade, has emerged as a leader in dance and new music, so this get-together will expose talent as well as a who's who in the industry. Great city and one of their most popular seminars of the year. Be there to hear such topics as reshaping the ways we perceive music, new technologies in digital mixing and recording, digital and online distribution, and radio as a vehicle for developing artists.
27-31 Tin Pan South
Nashville, Tennessee
615-256-3354

If it's happening in Nashville, you gotta be there! This little conference focuses on songwriting and a plethora of other things in the music city. It's a weeklong event so there will be lots of pickin' and strummin' for you to check out.
