 Why we created this course.

Not having the right skills and connections you need to succeed is a HUGE problem.

Wasting Time and Money on the
Wrong Content

Sure, you can learn things on YouTube and other online courses. But, the content is often irrelevant, badly organised, expensive, or, in some cases, ALL three.

No Toolkits and Step-by-Step Checklist 

Watching content is fun and convenient. But a big part of learning is doing. And I don't have professional toolkits and step-by-step action guides to show me exactly what I need to do.

Getting Noticed
Can Be Hugely Difficult

It's fine having the rights skills and projects. But, without the right people to help you, it's going to be extremely difficult to fulfil your true potential.

Introducing the 14 Day Music Career Builder

To bridge this gap in our industry, we've brought together top music makers and educators to help you develop the knowledge, skills and connections you need in the shortest time possible.
