The Music Producers Guild of NZ / Aotearoa.
Today sees the launch of the Music Producers Guild of NZ / Aotearoa (MPG NZ) which aims to foster and support a successful community of music producers and in turn, help champion and grow New Zealand music.
The MPG NZ is a non-profit trade organisation, enabled by funding and assistance from the New
Zealand Music Commission, Recorded Music New Zealand, NZ on Air, MMF NZ, SAE
Auckland and APRA NZ.
The annual membership fee of $100 enables members to access free personalised contracts
and short-form deal memos, created by legal partners Media Arts Lawyers, for producing,
mixing and performer releases. Members will also be provided with free licences from primary
tech partners Serato, along with future deals from a range of industry partners.
Members will have full access to the MPG NZ website which includes an FAQ section on
producer royalty payments, clarification of studio roles, music arranging, industry advice, and
accounting advice on royalties.
The website will also be providing details of repair techs, legal, accounting, insurance
services, audio courses and with other music industry related information, as well as developing
a directory of studio and producer for interested members.
