As part of NY Music Month Extended Play, Tom Eaton, Senior VP of Music for Advertising at Universal Music Publishing Group (UMPG) will provide high school and college students an introduction to how music is chosen and licensed for commercials, films, TV shows and video games. Did you know that there is an entire industry dedicated to licensing songs for these opportunities? This seminar will introduce you to how the industry works, as well as the many different job opportunities available within it.
Tom Eaton works to create new opportunities for UMPG’s current roster of writers and to serve as a liaison between the writers, advertising agencies and the publishing group in order to place songs and writers on upcoming advertising campaigns. During his 22 years with UMPG, Eaton has placed songs in commercials for Apple, Google, Ford, KFC, Nissan, Target, Chrysler and many more well-known global brands.
