Think 'MasterClass For The Music Industry!'

Knowing How The Industry Works Is Crucial To Your Success! 

It's important to build your music career in a well-thought-out manner. Jumping in without knowing the ropes can cause confusion, cost you money, waste your time and prevent you from making good decisions. Worse yet, being unaware of red flags can leave you vulnerable to being brutally scammed.

That's why we ask reputable industry professionals to walk you through each step of your journey. And we offer two levels of membership so you can learn only what you need to now, and then expand your knowledge from there!

FREE MEMBERSHIP - Over 45 videos for everyone who is either just starting their journey or feels stuck. You also have access to the member community, tools, resources and even product and service discounts!

CARTNE 'PRO' MEMBERSHIP - Get access to more than 150 video interviews on every aspect of the industry (new ones added weekly)!  You get everything offered in the free level as well.  This level is for the serious musician wanting to grow their fan base,  increase their income, perform more or explore more options within the industry.  Also ideal for the established musician who's ready to tour, get product endorsements, get sync placements etc. 

All videos feature audio-only tracks, a full transcript and a place to take notes. Many also have complete summaries with a short quiz to enhance your learning!

All for only $12/month or $119/year.
