An extension of CMI’s Artist Entrepreneur program serving Western and Northern-based artists, delivered in partnership with The National Music Centre at Studio Bell in Calgary
Artists spend five-weeks working with CMI at Studio Bell to expand their music industry knowledge, push their creative skills, and develop process-based approaches to ease the challenge of self-management.
Artists will also meet numerous industry professionals operating in all areas from Toronto, Alberta & British Columbia.
All artists who complete AE West have ongoing access CMI’s mentors and resources after the program ends.
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.
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.
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.
