We are now scheduling Winter 2019 Music Management, Development & Ministry Consultations as we look to the new year. The consultation is the first step in establishing a management relationship with our clients and is especially designed for ministries and faith-based performing artists: singers, bands, musicians, dancers, authors, speakers, and actors.

Are you ready for 2019?

We are scheduling final 2018 weekend dates for Music Management Consultations. How can we help you prepare for 2019?

Confirmed Consultations

  • December 17-19: Jacksonville, FL

Our clients are planning for 2019. Are you?

For the solo artist or band, record labels aren’t developing artists anymore. Most will only consider picking up an artist who is already fully-developed. So, somewhere along the line the artist must invest in his/her development if they want to take their music to a national level. TMA provides that development service as well as ongoing management. And it all starts with the consultation.

For more information about our Artist and Ministry Management services, please complete the no-obligation Contact Form so we can send you the information you need to make a quality decision about your next steps. We look forward to hearing from you!

How Can We Help You?

Whether you are just getting started or have been touring for years, TMA can provide you with the world-class development, management & support you need to get to the next level. Are you a ministry in need of professional development? Do you have a solid mission and vision statement?

Record labels don't develop artists. TMA does.

  • Gary spent a good deal of our consultancy time together asking important questions and listening. I was so pleased to find that Gary genuinely wanted to ‘get’ me first and then customize his services to exactly my needs. He did not have a one-size-fits-all approach at all! He took the time and had the skills and insight to ‘understand me and what I believe I’m called to do before supplying excellent advise for the path ahead. Not only have I found solid professional insight in Gary, I have found a potential ministry partner.

What We Offer

Artist & Ministry Development, Management, Promotions & Marketing - We Do It All!

  • Development & Management – complete development and management following the recommendations of the Client Evaluation Report from the Music or Ministry Development/Management  Consultation.
