Our Music Management Consultation – FLORIDA IN-STATE is a private industry-insider mini-conference. Rather than taking your entire team to a tense, two-hour meeting with a record company A&R rep, or attending an impersonal music development training event (with expenses including conference registrations, travel, etc.), the conference comes to you. And you get the personal attention of the presenter (me) rather than sitting in a room with hundreds of others, or in front of an A&R rep tapping his foot waiting for you to leave. The consultation is designed to help Christian artists develop their calling as musicians into a legitimate, financially-secure career path. During the consultation I will spend 10-12 hours of personal, one-on-one consultation time with you in your city, developing a personalized management and development plan designed to specifically meet your career and ministry goals. We cover everything from developing a vision and mission statement, to recording a CD, marketing and promotions, developing a career as a touring musician, etc.
