What Is Leadership & Legacy?

” A twelve month tuition based education and mentorship program supporting the future leaders who create great music.”

Musicians! Whether you’re just starting out or been performing for years, you know how much the creation and distribution of your art has changed recently. The rise of social media, technology, streaming, promotion outlets have given all musicians new ways to get your music to your fans. The ones with vision and hustle have found ways to master these tools with entrepreneurial skills to bypass the music industry machine, create their own Brand and achieve control of their career and lifestyle.

That is the essence of what we teach in The Leadership and Legacy Program. We invite experts in music and visionaries outside the industry to give you a new perspective on how to leverage your talent, create a career and lifestyle that is satisfying, scale your business model to succeed and ultimately grow your legacy.

The teaching is done in live workshop environments and online sessions for a twelve month period. We emphasize accountability, support, collaboration, the sharing of ideas and a change in mindset to understand that you can succeed on your terms. If you want to develop your leadership skills, improve your talent, influence the present culture and generations of musicians, or if you simply want to make more money for the gigs you have now, this program is for you. We’ll teach you how to disrupt the status quo with Practical Common Sense Knowledge, Street Smarts and Your Natural Talents.
