We believe in effective music industry professionals and helping guide music careers to success. Also, we believe that music can change attitudes, grow unity and truly change the world!
In 2014 “thecoolschool for music business studies” was founded by Kenny Kerner and Chris Fletcher who together had over 75 years of hands-on industry experience in booking, personal management, music journalism, artist development, touring and career counseling. As our live events have grown, so has our desire to provide step by step guidelines on how to make money with your music.
RE-BRANDING! In 2016 we re-branded our name and launched MusicBizMentors which continues panels & workshops about 6 times a year. Putting our programs on facebook live has allowed us to connect with musicians around the world. Or mentorship is popular because the music business professionals that have joined us, are chosen because they work with musicians, at all levels, and truly deliver the information you need to move your music career forward. We believe in making guided stepping stones programs to provide you need help no matter what level you have achieved. We are probably one of the few organizations who want to work with brand new artists, who need specific questions answered, without you dishing out loads of money on courses that just are not a great fit for your needs.
NETWORKING THROUGH AN ONLINE COMMUNITY
Fall of 2020, we are launching a special facebook group where we can answer your individual questions one-on-one and adding direct coaching programs if you need individual attention. 2021 we have some surprises for you as we grow our MusicBizMentors programs which will include FREE webinars and online mini courses PLUS continued interviews with music business professions and musicians, who work in the industry today, to give you the advice you need to put 2020 behind us and really help your music career grow.
Whether you decide to come for a workshop, connect with a music biz mentor or be part of our panel, music events, facebook group or need some individual coaching, the goal is for you to meet to provide a supportive network of music friends and industry professionals who will definitely help your music career grow tenfold!
