Welcome to the “Musician’s Guide” Series!
This series is pulled directly from the courses I’ve created for my university position in Music Business. All of these courses are designed for the everyday musician – amateur or professional – who has little or no knowledge on the topic, but wants to master it.
This class is all about Band Partnerships and Legal Issues. In other words: How bands (and any musical collaboration) work together. In this class, I’ll give you a template for a typical agreement between band members, and walk you through what everything means.
100% Answer Rate! Every single question posted to this class is answered within 24 hours by the instructor.
It is ideal for anyone who is in a band or wants to start a band. Especially:
- Musicians: If you are making music with other people, you need to understand your rights and come to some understandings.
- Producers: If you are producing for other musicians, you should have them under contract. In this class, I’ll walk you through the entire contract, and give you a template to use.
- Curious Minds: Anyone interested in how bands operate is invited to be a part of this class.
We will start by talking through what bands “have.” That is more than just the PA that they bought together – it is also all their intellectual property – like songs, albums, any recordings, the band name, logos, flyers, and more. Then we will look at a typical band agreement (I’ll give you a copy to use with your own band), and I’ll walk you through every step of the agreement so you fully understand what is being asked.
The goal of this class is for you to understand how bands work together, and how to keep from suing each other once you start making money!
This course is NOT specific to any DAW program.

Praise for classes by J. Anthony Allen
“Without a doubt the best explanation and east of use that one can get. It leaves you enough room to go explore. The classes go by quick, so you can be on your way at being proficient. What are you wait for!”
“Amazing – Seriously Loved It! I took all his courses and have to say I’m so happy! Learnt loads! Jason is an awesome teacher!”
“I have never had any formal training in music at all. Trying to learn all the notes and how everything translated was a serious challenge. After going through this class, Dr. J has totally brought down the barriers. The content was very useful and was easy to grasp for me.”
“I like these courses because you can get up and running quickly without having to spend hours of time wading through TMI (too much information!). Jason hits the high points but shows you what you need to know. Thanks!”
“I’ve watched many other videos on scales and chords before, however, this one has been the best. I now understand minor scales and chords and even how to analyze songs. It really gave me the confidence to start producing music because I feel like I have some structure and guidelines to follow. AWESOME!”
“Clear and Informative – Jason has a clear uncluttered style (with the important dashes of humor) of presentation that is focused on the important key aspects of this course. Recommended for those starting out!”
“Dr. Allen does it again with his music theory series. This course really opened up everything I learned from the 1st section, and now I understand more about the composition side of things for music. I highly highly recommend this course to anyone!!! Really opened my eyes to many things I wasn’t aware of.”
“The Best Teacher Ever, who makes you understand the ins & outs of Music Theory by all means without giving what you don’t want to know.”
