Let’s Get To Work

Music Career Development: Learn about earning $ from your music career. Search our Directory for Grants, Residencies, Sponsorships, Sync Opportunities and more…. We also have great educational content (written by Industry Vets) which teaches you about HOW to secure these opportunities.

Super-Size Your Career

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. MusicMakers addresses this -  we help artists to tell their story, define their brand, & make $ - while maintaining a healthy balance.

Your Music Business deserves cross-media and unified branding with a clear strategy on leveraging your audience...  WHAT?!  Yeah - we want to teach Musicians to be Entrepreneurs.    Learn about Branding, Monetization, Streaming, and more!!
