Over the last few years, people began to find me on Facebook or through the Nashville Musician’s Union. Or someone moves to Nashville and their friend back home tells them they need to look me up. We go to lunch or have a drink. I give them some tips about how this town works and what their next move should be. I try to do what Tommy & Paul did for me. And because I love Nashville and what I do here, the passion and positivity comes through. Sixty to ninety minutes later, they are fired up, ready to take on the world, and thank me wholeheartedly! I would always think, “I should really figure out a way to bottle this somehow to help more folks.” So that's what I'm doing.
Would you like to hear from a few of them? Watch the TESTIMONIALS.
A publisher friend of mine teaches a music industry class at a local college. He invited me in to speak. Two hours later, I got an intern and a recommendation letter out of it!
That’s why I'm launching Music City 101. To see if this is right for you, see PROGRAMS.
Music City 101 is designed for:
- Anyone planning to relocate to Nashville, or even thinking of a move to Nashville.
- Those new to town, trying to figure what is going on here! (musicians, artists, writers, music business hopefuls).
- Recent graduates, fresh out of music business, performance & songwriting programs. In a sense, they are “new to town,” as they first hit the real world.
- Anyone who feels stuck where they are, even if they’ve lived here for years.
- Or if you just need a shot of positive therapy by hanging with a group of like-minded creatives, this is for you!
- To inform, inspire and connect.
- Warn you about those who would try to take advantage of the inexperienced. Believe me, if you are green in this town, you will be easy to spot!
- Do whatever I can to move you down the road to your next stop. I can’t make you famous, but I can get you closer…
- Meet online once a week, depending up tour schedules, and other things that may come up in this “Crazy Town.”
- Share stories and experiences.
- Keep it to an hour of your time with each session. If you’ve ever taken a weekly music lesson, think of this as a music career lesson.
Leave me a comment or a message. Tell me what you'd like to cover, what you'd like to learn & what you have questions about. If I can't find the answer, I will get you closer to the answer.
Let's have some fun.
