New Artist Model is a 12 week step-by-step online music business training program you can use to share your music with the world and start developing income and a huge fanbase faster than ever before. If you would like a clear-cut path and proven system that you can use to share your music with the world, get better gigs, find licensing opportunities and start developing income and a huge fanbase faster than ever before — then look no further. My name is Dave Kusek, and I’ve been teaching music business and music management to musicians from all over the globe through my books, live events, and online classes. I’m the founder of Berklee Online, and co-author of the best selling music business book The Future of Music. I’ve had the honor of guiding tens of thousands of musicians through the ever-changing landscape of the Music Business, enabling them to become successful musicians and build sustainable music careers. This is what I want for you. The concepts you’ll find in the New Artist Model are truly on the leading edge of the music business. It’s all about putting POWER into the hands of the artist like never before, by helping you develop a crystal-clear vision of your career goals, then giving you a strategy to break through and bring that vision to Life. You’ll learn how to book more gigs – and BETTER gigs – and easy ways to get your fans EXCITED to show up night after night. You’ll turn those gigs into recruiting engines to get new, long-term fans into your camp and ready to support you so you can finally start living a life in music on YOUR OWN TERMS. You’ll learn the MOST EFFECTIVE ways to build a team of people devoted to your music and ready to help you succeed – we’re talking managers, publishers, record labels, and agents. So you can stop emailing and cold calling and set the groundwork that gets these people to come to YOU! And of course, you’ll learn how to turn all your efforts into income – MULTIPLE streams of money that can fund your next big project, album, or tour – and income that can help you finally quit that job and live the dream of going full-time independent. The New Artist Model will show you how. All you have to do is follow steps laid out for you in your Career Map, and if you put in the work, you cannot fail. AND we have lots of checklists and quick start guides to get you up and running for promotion, marketing, social media, email, website, distribution, touring, merchandise, crowdfunding, publishing, licensing, sponsorships and more.
Hi, I’m Dave Kusek - director of New Artist Model, Co-Author of the Future of Music book, and founder of Berklee Online. I’ve have taught music business and music management to tens of thousands of musicians from around the world through my books, live events and online classes. I’ve had the honor of helping millions of people live their dreams in music. I co-wrote the The Future of Music book which has sold over 50,000 copies and am a regular music blogger. In that book we predicted the iPhone, Siri and Spotify. I helped to get the MIDI standard started long ago and was a pioneer of digital and electronic music at Passport Music Software and Synare electronic drums. I have always been an advocate for independent musicians and my contributions have helped make it possible for you to do what you do today in music production, business and independent music marketing. I’ve worked with artists, songwriters, performers, promoters, managers, label people, publishers, booking agents, and A&R reps and many others. I love the music business and think this is a great time to be a musician. I hope that you will join me and sign up for the New Artist Model online music business training program.
