HOPE-20, Brave Enough Entertainment and Nashville Artist Development University have teamed up to offer weekly courses and webinars to help you re-think and re-energize your career!
Sometimes it takes a crisis to see who we really are, what we really have, and what we truly value. And for those who are honest and courageous about their situation, there are often remarkable opportunities that are born. It is Hope-20’s mission to help you use this troubling time to “fall upward” so to speak, and move toward PEACE, PURPOSE, and PROFESSIONAL EXCELLENCE.
If you’ve submitted an application for financial assistance, and have been approved, you receive a scholarship that allows you to participate at NO COST TO YOU.
What Will I Get?
Like most programs of this nature, you’ll get out what you put in. And while you’re not under any obligation to continue the courses if you determine it’s not of value, we strongly urge you to sit with the ideas and perspectives presented by our instructors. Each of them will not only share their insights on how to creatively approach (or re-approach) your career in this time of crisis, but our instructors are all music and entertainment industry professionals themselves, who’ve toured, gigged, and written and produced professionally. They also care deeply about helping you and our community.
Some of this fall's offerings include the following classes, webinars and videos:
Live Streaming: How to do it well and to make it pay
Sessions include: Getting Started; Audio and Video recording; Staging; and Building your Base with Engagement Essentials.
Content is King: Great Content Builds Kingdoms
Sessions include: Building a brand; Setting up the Socials to Drive Results; The shoot; Video Production; Songwriting and Essential Song Production; Content Release Strategy; Planning your Future, and more.
Sessions focus on helping you approach your career from a healthier position, from helping you understand “who I am” outside of music, to redefining “success” within your music. Also includes physical health and well-being.
Sessions focus on helping you work smarter instead of harder at gathering an audience on the social platforms. Everything from writing a bio, angles and shots, real and genuine posting, pre-meditated content, EPK video creation and more.
Business and Revenue
Sessions focus on how to structure a legitimate business out of your talents, managing liability exposures, invoicing, appropriate pay scales for players, budgets, value perceptions, and creating a sustainable and profitable venture.
Networking and Relationship Building
Sessions focus on developing quality relationships, listening skills, setting meetings, and professional presentations to promoters, booking agencies and/or labels.
How to Sell Municipal Drive-In Concerts
Long-form webinar with included support materials on how to contact municipalities and help them resurrect their previously budgeted (and subsequently canceled) summer concert series by offering drive-in concerts. The artist gives the municipality the “how to” template, shows up with an FM transmitter, and delivers a fun, monetizable event!
