MEET THE MENTORS
MBM works with a number of music business professionals who are open to guide and answer specific questions about how to grow your music career. These experts come in as guests, to do panels and specific workshops, to open your eyes to different ways to advance your career at any level.
All of our expert mentors currently work in the industry and can guide you in developing your…
- Music Artistry (recording/producing/rehearsing)
- Branding (image building, music missions and networking)
- Marketing (building press & PR campaigns)
- Song Placements (TV, Film & advertising)
- PLUS other area like touring, sponsorships and helping make detailed plans for releasing your music and sparking your social media.
Mentors have agreed to meet one time with musicians for $40 for 40 minutes. The musician needs to gather questions and music samples for the mentor to review (a 10 minute review time is part of your review) and the MusicBizMentors will arrange a 30minute Skype or phone meeting with the mentor.
Contact us to connect you with the right music professional that will answer your questions!
Every year we do an in person panel event where our mentors will give you some general tips on their specialties and sit in small groups to answer your specific questions.
CAREER COACHING/MUSIC BUSINESS MENTOR
Chris Fletcher is the Founder of MusicBizMentors and works with musicians one-on-one. Her expertise is on helping new musicians begin their music journey, ignite a weekly ‘Action List’, help find the money gigs and suggest promotion ideas to grow your audience. In the past, Chris has built tours around college and festival gigs, secured much needed sponsorships, grants and equipment endorsements.

HOW THE COACHING PROGRAM WORKS
Chris will need you to gather your music, videos and make a list of all the music projects you are working on and email that list to her about 3 days before your initial FREE phone/zoom meeting. At the first meeting, we will discuss how often we need to connect and how much time, you, as the musician, needs to commit. Payments are based on the number of hours it takes to work on your project weekly. An affordable payment plan can be arranged.
Usual coaching includes at least 2 hours of meeting time plus up to 5 email chains a month. This is a 3 month commitment for both the artist and the coach.
HOW THE MENTORING PROGRAM WORKS
As a mentor, we can consult every few months to help you with your specific projects. Contact me at least one week before you would like to plan your One-to-One meetings in person, Skype or Zoom. Consultation fees are based on the number of hours we actually meet.
COMING IN 2021!
FACEBOOK LIVE & SPECIAL GROUPS
We are beginning our weekly “Music Business Tips” on Facebook Live in November 2020. As we enter 2021, we will add a special Weekly Group Membership where we discuss a music business topic and answer your individual questions.
Fresh new industry panels will be conducted through zoom and we are hoping to do a full day MBM Summit that will be both online and in person, as social distancing subsides. (HOPE BY THE SUMMER OF 2021!)
WEBINARS & ONLINE COURSES
As we start developing mini-courses by subject, this will include one-to-one interviews with Music Business Professionals who are currently working IN THE MUSIC BUSINESS TODAY! Online courses are being developed, for new musicians, to help you develop a career plan and grow your fans base.
