Artist INC Express Free Online Workshops for Musicians

Build your music career and make your music work

Sign up for FREE online professional development in March 2024 for musicians at all stages of their careers from Artist INC. Workshops are limited to 20 participants each, and we expect them to sell out.

Building a business or career around a music practice isn’t like building any other small business. Musicians face different challenges.

Unlike other entrepreneur- and business-focused classes, Artist INC is tailored for the needs and challenges of working musicians of any genre. Musicians learn and grow together in small groups led by peer facilitators.

These workshops immediately activate a network of musicians in the community leading to additional peer-to-peer resource sharing and support, long after the workshop concludes.

Led by professional musician facilitators, the intensive nine-hour workshop addresses the specific professional needs and challenges that musicians face.

All sessions are online. For more details, and to register, click below.
