The Artist Manager Program is an eight-week professional development program designed to mentor active artist managers and/or self-managed artists in a real world music industry environment. Delivered in collaboration with Upfront Megatainment Music with a staff that has worked with acts such as Usher, Gwen Stefani, Akon, Mary J Blige, P Diddy, Lady GaGa, and countless others.
This program takes a customized hands-on approach to working with artist managers to help build their management businesses and develop the careers of their artists. Program participants work alongside management, label, marketing, promotion, publicity, social media, funding, and touring experts, as well as connect and network with industry professionals in music law, accounting, publishing, booking, talent buying, music supervision, radio, performing rights organizations, funding bodies, and technical production.
The Artist Management Program is valued at $7,500 per artist. The actual program fee per artist has never exceeded $2,500 thanks to the generous financial contributions of our partners, sponsors and patrons.
All applicants are eligible for financial awards of up to $5,000 to help offset program costs.
