Artist Mentoring


Most artists who are successful in the music industry today had to learn what they know by trial and error. On top of that, the music industry is ever changing with advances in technology making it difficult to keep up with what trends are taking off.

Our artist mentoring lessons are designed to take students who are already proficient at their instrument to the next level, teaching them the key steps to build a career out of their talent and passion.


Our artist mentoring teachers are all established and respected industry professionals, who are passionate about passing their knowledge on to the artists of tomorrow. We love nothing more than seeing our students win, and put time and effort into helping students build their careers and finding opportunities for them to shine.

Artist mentoring lessons are tailored to the artist’s goals, but can include building a set list, booking gigs and networking with venues, setting up social media accounts, managing a website, building an EPK or writing a press release, recording and producing original music, songwriting and arrangement, or monetising your music through streaming, licensing, online sales and royalties.

Artist mentoring lessons can be booked as either casual or ongoing lessons.
