Ever wondered why that venue didn’t email you back even though your band is PERFECT to open for Mastadon? Ever found yourself confused on how to get the word out on a new track, how to tour on your own, or pondering if it’s time to find a real agent? This is truly a crash course for some of the best who’ve done it, nailed it and have some great tips and experience to share with you.

This 6-week-long workshop is geared for music artists looking to take their career to the next level, and features one-hour classes on a different topic in the music industry each week. It is being offered in person and virtually via Zoom starting October 14th. The goal of this workshop is to bring musicians in Maine and beyond the best knowledge and insight that working musicians and industry professionals in our network can provide.
