FAQ

What is the Music Entrepreneur Club?
The Music Entrepreneur Club is a live, online education and networking platform for aspiring artists, producers, managers, and label owners. We meet live every week via video conference to discuss various music industry topics with established professionals.
Why did we start the MEC?
We decided to launch the MEC so that those that are really serious about their music can understand what it will take for them to get to the next level, whether you are just starting out or have already been successful at creating some momentum.

The reality is that most artists will not be successful making a career in music. You'll need to pull together the right people, continue to educate yourself, and work your ass off to make it happen. The cool thing, however, is that if you go about building your music business the right way, the journey will be helpful whether you continue to pursue music or start another type of business.
What types of things are discussed in the MEC?
Every week we address a different topic. If you have an idea for a topic or would like to know more about particular area of the music industry, then just ask. We cater to what you need and want to know about.
