Course Description

Are you ready to be a hero to a whole new set of clients? Most professional musicians and other artists are independent, so they need organization just as much as every other self-employed client. They also often have special challenges, and the right support can make all the difference in their success. As an organizer, you are uniquely positioned to help creatives to keep making their art AND making a living with it.

Learning Objectives
This session will teach you ...
- why creative disorganization is a special challenge, and a special gift,
- important ways that the music biz differs from any other industry you've worked with,
- how to adapt organization as you know it to fit the rhythms and needs of musicians and other creatives,
- and how to ease artists' fears that they'll lose their creativity if they get too structured and regimented.
