PRS for Music, which represents more than 125,000 songwriters, composers and music publishers around the world, hosted the panel at the Norwich Arts Centre.

A talk titled How To: Make Your Music Pay provided an insight into the industry and how to turn music into a career, whether an artist has just written their first song or their 15th.

Featured on the panel were BBC Music Introducing in Norfolk's Sophie Little and DJ and artist manager Carly Wilford.

How To Build Momentum explored how artists can first build a team and then build buzz around their music.

Musicians learnt about the importance of protecting their music rights, how they can get their music heard, and the various ways that creating music can generate an income.

Mary Epworth, Hannah Peel and Love Ssega performed at the end of talks.
