Will You Show Me How To Avoid Going Broke While Pursuing A Career In Music?
There are good ways and bad ways to go about pursuing a career in music. I’ll coach you to do the right things so that you are not one of those ‘starving artists’ that do things the wrong way and go broke in the process.
In fact, one of the pillars of a successful music career is financial freedom. It is (part of) what gives you the ability to say “yes” to opportunities in the music industry.
Picture this: imagine you get a phone call from a record company who offers to sign your band to a record deal.
Only there is a catch:
You have to spend the next 10 weeks in the studio recording your album and then 3 months on tour.
During this time – you need a way to pay your bills back home. Most musicians have no way to say “yes” to such opportunities and the record deal goes to those who can.
When I train you in the Music Careers Mentoring Program, I teach you how to set up your career to be able to say “yes” to gigs like this.
The secret to doing this is: multiple streams of income.
Once you have them (I’ll help you set them up for yourself in the program) you have the level of freedom, stability and financial security most people (and most musicians) only dream about.
"The main reason that I like to be in the Music Careers Mentoring Program is because it gave me direction of what to do how to do it and what I need to do next. It really focused a lot of things that I kind of knew that I needed to do, but it laid out a path for me to follow and it was very focused and concise."
The Music Careers Mentoring Program has elevated my status as a musician where I’ve been able to present myself in a much more professional way as a guitar player, as a musician, as somebody aspiring to be in the music business.
The Music Careers Mentoring Program has had a positive effect on everything related to my career. The imaging part of it, presenting yourself as a professional and therefore being treated as a professional... I’ve gotten an invaluable result from that. Endorsements from manufacturers. the perception of my professionalism. Just even just on a local level. Yeah.
Oh it’s incredibly inspiring. You get to see other people growing with you or either are further along than you and all the things... cool things that they’ve attained... and then you see the other people who are a little behind you in progress in the program and you can see yourself in them and see how much you’ve grown since then.
The forum is a great tool of... it’s interesting because a lot of the times the answers to your questions are right there from your peers... so Tom Hess is accessible, but you can instantly have an answer from just the information that’s already been there on the forum from people who proceeded you or you can have an MCMP person right there on the forum and they might be able to help you out immediately.

"I joined the Music Careers Mentoring Program when I was 17 years old and I think it's been a great experience, it's been very life changing for me.”
I went out of school and started my own business as a producer and as a musician, and I've been doing great since. Currently I am producing for semi-big Danish artists, and in addition, I'm playing in 3 bands. One of them is very exciting artistically for me, one is having amazing success, we've just been signed to a management with Sony Music Denmark, and the last one is making good money, so I can live off that.

“The Music Careers Mentoring Program is absolutely incredible, the changes that it has made - it's hard not to smile while I'm saying this because I'm so enthused about it. It has just completely changed my life.”
Getting rid of debt, having freedom of time, freedom of money... I'm looking forward to creating a lifestyle for myself as a musician that's something beyond anything I would have ever dreamed. I'm the captain of my ship, I can go wherever I wanna go with it. Tom has exceeded my expectations in everything I've been involved with him.
