“How are YOU managing?”

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 Coalition Music (Our Lady Peace, Simple Plan, USS, Finger Eleven, Justin Nozuka), 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.

Ongoing mentorship is available following the program at no additional cost along with a one-year free membership to the Music Managers Forum (MMF).

Testimonials

“I’ve probably learned more about the music business in the last two months than I have in the last 10 years.”

Troy Kokol, Artist Manager

“This program gave me—and I’m sure the others—the opportunity to be open and ask questions. You are able to sit down [with the mentors] and work at a personal level with your business, rather than just saying this is how it is and this is how it should be done.”

Murphy Patrick, Artist Manager

“It’s been really great to be learning from people who are actively doing it. I don’t think there is any experience more valid than learning from people who are dealing with it right now.”

Savannah Wellman, Artist Manager

“What I love about CMI is that it feels like a family. I feel like the people that have been mentoring us are very invested in helping other people’s businesses grow, other managers grow, other artists grow.”

Trevor Tobias, Artist Manager
