What it Is
The MusicMakers Workshop is a professional development series for musicians. In 2018, the series will be offered at ShapeShifter Lab in Brooklyn, NY.
We go to school to learn about our specific professions — but are never taught the business or given the tools to successfully leverage our skills in the real world. The MusicMakers Workshop addresses this need. We’ve designed a program to help artists to tell their story, to define their brand, and to expand their revenue – all while maintaining a healthy work/life balance.

A professor at Indiana University did a study of 1500 music graduates and discovered that only 50% work in the field of music after leaving college. While 50% is actually a good percentage, with music career development, more MusicMakers can be out in the world creating art and living their dream. We’ve designed a program to help artists to define their brand, tell their story, and expand their available revenue streams.
