Mike Smith, president of Michael Smith and Associates, has announced the launch and registration period for the 2014 edition of his Artist Management Training Course. Hosted by the 30-year music industry veteran, Artist Management Training Course is designed for those seeking a career as an artist manager, as well as for artists that want a better understanding of the industry and proven tools to move themselves forward.
In this unique on-demand video teaching program, Smith has captured everything he knows about artist management. Smith and Kyle Johnson (Artist Manager with Michael Smith and Associates) sit and talk with a number of successful music industry veterans to get their advice and expertise on a wide variety of topics. Among the many music professionals featured in the series are artist manager Jim Chaffee, John Mays (Centricity Music), Charles Dorris (Charles Dorris & Associates), Jan Smith (Behind the Voice Agency), Brian Mayes (Nashville Publicity Group), Brian Smith (Turning Point Media), Beth Hood-Fromm (OMG Publicity), performance coach Tom Jackson, social media expert Brody Harper (Skorinc) and many more.
“There has never been anything done like this before,” explains Smith, who has successfully helped shape the careers of numerous artists in the Christian and Country music industries, including Restless Heart, Jaci Velasquez, Salvador, Chonda Pierce, Yancy, Denver & the Mile High Orchestra, Go Fish, comedian Brad Stine and more. “We have put together a massive on-line video training course for the Christian Music and entertainment industry. Using state of the art teaching technology and interviews with some of the most influential people in the business, this course is designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of every aspect of artist development. This is for serious folks who want to learn how to succeed in the industry as Artist Managers. I believe that passing on my years of experience, and all of the secrets to my success, will provide a thorough education for those who feel called to this field.”
Part of the program also includes an opportunity for registrants to watch the process of a “real live” artist’s development and all of the steps necessary for their success in the entertainment business.
New for 2014, Michael Smith and Associates will also be hosting a conference on artist management in Franklin, Tennessee, on June 6th.
