Event Details

The four session dates for this month are: June 3, June 10, June 17, June 24.

Two key things I've learned in my 15-plus years in this business: First, there are many more talented artists out there than what labels are able to sign; and secondly, talent alone is not enough to enjoy long-term success in this industry. Regardless of whether you want to be signed or not; the truth is, if you want to turn your hobby into a career, you must learn the "business of music." This career development workshop is designed to help you to do just that. To prepare you, regardless of where you are on your journey, to take that next step.

Here is an overview of the workshop:

  • The series consists of four (4) sessions. Sessions are held "live" online - via video conference and/or by conference call (for those who don't have a webcam). 
  • Each session is approximately 1 hour in length
  • Fourth Session is a music feedback session
  • You will have an opportunity in each session to ask questions


Part One: Building The Proper FoundationIn this first session we'll talk about the essentials that every artist needs to know to lay the right foundation to build upon. Building the right team is critical and I’ll help you understand the key roles.


Part Two: Handling Your Business - Publishing is the #1 source of revenue for the music business, yet remains one of the least understood. This week we'll discuss why it's important for every artist-songwriter--whether signed or unsigned, to understand what publishing is all about. We'll also talk about Distribution. It's something every artist needs and it's available to every artist. Find out what your options are and how to pursue them! Why it's important to every songwriter - signed or unsigned.


Part Three: Preparing For Launch - Don't you dare release that music without doing these key things. Just because you've finished recording, doesn't mean you're ready to release your song/project. This week we'll talk about what you need to do to make sure you're ready for the marketplace.


Part Four: Let’s Talk Music Without great content, the rest doesn’t matter. I’ll listen to your music, provide you with feedback and share a few pointers I’ve learned from working with the industry’s best, to help you refine your craft.
