Additional topics to be discussed include: what music styles work (and which don't), the importance of dayparting your music, understanding beats-per-minute, music licensing, and much more. You're sure to walk away with intelligent and invaluable ideas for improving your music and making money with it. 

Choosing the right speakers and sound system will also be discussed during their program. “You might be playing the right music,” says Magnum. “But if your guests can't hear the music, it's too loud or sounds poor, then you're not maximizing your potential to properly engage your customers. We're going to tell you exactly what you need to do to sound great.”

An extended Q&A with the audience will conclude the program, so get your questions ready now.
