We are very excited to welcome an international guest speaker for our February event: Tim Bern will be zooming in from across the ditch in New Zealand/Aotearoa (he usually splits his year between there and Los Angeles).

Tim works in business development and user education at and also co-owns Koze Music, a music publishing admin and sync company which serves as his creative outlet working direct with artists and composers. Tim has also worked as a professional jazz musician, an artist manager, a restaurant owner in Brooklyn, and an ad agency music supervisor through Level Two Music.

We are so lucky to be able to directly tap into Tim’s expertise with a deep dive into “Metadata, Ownership Splits and Schedule A deals” and the intricacies of how to prepare your music for pitching or sharing with your pub/sync representative.

Tim will be covering the following topics:
– How your preparation helps your representative work harder and faster for you.
– File types
– Metadata fields
– Writer split sheets
– Master ownership
– The beauty of One-Stop (for rights holders and music supervisors)
– Basics of Schedule A sync or pub/admin deals
– The onboarding process
– Other assets to keep on hand – press photos, bios, stems, alternate versions


Join us to develop your skills in the craft and business of songwriting, network and collaborate with other members, and be involved in this supportive and cherished songwriting community.

Attendance is free for ASC Members and $15 for non-members (after two free visits as guests).
