Artist Mentored

CMI opened my eyes to in the ins and outs of the industry. It made a career in music feel like an attainable goal. I would recommend this program to any aspiring artist.

Selci Artist

I gained my first realistic understanding of where I stood and where I could go. We identified my strengths and dove into who I am (and who I am not) as an artist.

Ruben Young Artist

It was empowering to talk about running my small business as an artist entrepreneur and I feel much more confident in my ability to do so thanks to the tools and knowledge gained from this program.
