November 1, 2018 in SaskMusic News
CMI has opened 2019 online registration for their core professional development programs: Artist Entrepreneur (Mar/Aug) and Artist Manager (Oct) in Toronto. Both programs help emerging artists and artist managers across all genres build their businesses and careers through customized mentorship and professional development.
Artists and managers work hands-on with CMI and their expert network of trusted music industry professionals to develop their business, craft and confidence in the areas of revenue development, marketing, branding, social media, publicity, streaming, radio promotion, copyright, royalty collection, touring, funding, team building, contracts, and more. Artists will also experience a series of customized creative workshops, including live and studio performance, vocals and songwriting collaborations.
Ongoing access to CMI mentors and industry resources for artists and managers is included, at no additional cost.
Artist Entrepreneur – March 5 to April 26 & August 6 to September 27, 2019 – Tues-Fri, 10am-4pm
Artist Manager – October 8 to November 29, 2019 – Tues to Fri – 10am-4pm
“What stuck out to me about Artist Entrepreneur,” says award-winning artist, IsKwé, “wasn't just the learning experience, but the relationships that were built—both with the team at CMI and within the broader music industry. Everyone was really invested in helping the artists build their business, and that's not always easy to find in this industry!"
Scottie Irving, Ottawa-based artist manager reflects, “When I started managing artists, I had nothing but hopes, hunches, and assumptions. Artist Manager helped me organize the chaos by giving me access to priceless knowledge, proven expertise and informed advice. It saved me from having to learn countless things the hard way.”
“Success is defined by the artist or manager,” says Vel Omazic, CMI’s executive director, “we exist as an organization to help them, regardless of genre or style, to bring focus to their goals and to provide them with the tools, processes and support needed, on an ongoing basis, to fill the gaps in their business and creative development.”
