Play It Strange is not about the economic imperatives of pursuing a career in the music industry. It embraces all that is musical - songwriting, performance and the 'taking' of music to the people; for a lifetime.
APRA on the other hand are of the music industry. Their crucial role as an economic provider is a story in itself - and this seminar will provide much to learn about.
