Career Advice with Pinar Toprak

As the first female composer of $1-billion box-office smash, Pinar Toprak has been working in the upper echelons of TV and film for several years. We’re thrilled to have her join us for the latest webinar in our ongoing educational series.

Before she achieved her current breakout success, Pinar realized that talent and love of music alone weren’t enough to be successful. Composers also needed business knowledge.

Every project she took on helped Pinar learn about the industry—and about herself. In our new webinar, “Career Advice with Pinar Toprak,” she talks with (YMYF founder) Joel Beckerman about:

  • Creating challenges for yourself and rising to them
  • The importance of demos
  • Investing in equipment and live musicians
  • The choices of how to be paid and what they mean: all-in, buyout and performance royalties
  • And more!

Plus, as a female Turkish composer, Pinar shares advice for composers who will be working in environments where they’re in the minority. Her unique perspective is a must-listen for composers of all experience levels.

Tune in today for free to hear from this brilliant, generous, and community-minded musical talent.
