Module 1 – DIY

In the new business model for the music industry, artists must form and evolve on their own. With this new approach, it is important to first define the meaning of success, create a strategy to achieve such success and finally, perform and execute that strategy.

How and when do you form a team? When should you search for a manager or agent? How can you successfully promote your brand? What is the most efficient way to receive funding?

Module 2 – Music Production

Music production has vastly changed throughout the years and the producers are playing a more visible role in an artist’s development.

This module offers a detailed and practical explanation on the process of song production. Concrete examples will be provided and analyzed in detail.

What variables define a good song? How can you achieve something different that still connects with the public?

Live performances are becoming more and more important for bands and concert promoters. They have transformed into fundamental components for artist development.
