ARTIST DEVELOPMENT COURSES:
MUSIC BUSINESS MENTORING
The single most important thing that all aspiring music artists need to remember prior to pursuing a career in music is that this industry is ultimately a business. One of the biggest mistakes that aspiring artists make is assuming that their talent alone will lead them to success. In reality, success in the music business requires more than musical talent. It also requires an understanding of how the business side of the industry works. Here at MPI we will offer you the guidance and mentoring needed to help you make the right choices as your career progresses.
The ability to play a musical instrument is an advantageous asset to any aspiring artist. Not only does it provide them with a means for translating their creative ideas into musical compositions, it also adds an extra dimension to their artistry by becoming an extension of their musical persona. Here at MPI we employ expert instrumentalists who can teach you to play any instrument of your choice to an advanced level.
Most Artist Development mentors who work in the music business agree that vocal coaching is an essential practice. Even established artists regularly utilize vocal coaches in order to maintain and even further improve their singing ability. It is essentially what separates good singers from truly great singers. Here at MPI we'll help you improve as a singer by building on your existing vocal strengths and improving your weaknesses. We will help you extend your vocal range, guide you on breathing, and hone your delivery to ensure that you reach your full singing potential.
This aspect of artist development focuses on helping artists to hone their skills as writers by guiding them on the compositional techniques associated with various genre's of music. It encourages them to explore song writing in new and creative ways so that they can begin identifying and carving out their own niche as artists. It also helps artist to further refine their creative niche by helping them understand where they fit within the current commercial music market.
Recording studio's can often be a daunting place for people taking their first steps towards making that first hit record. The sight of racks of equipment and rows of buttons surrounding them can often take them out of their comfort zone. And as any recording professional will tell you, the artist needs to be fully at ease before they can deliver their best sounding performance. Here at MPI we will give you an overview of how the recording process works so you can gain the reassurance to participate in the creative recording process with confidence.
LIVE PERFORMANCE COACHING
Many of the most successful artists in the music business are those who can transform the music that they create in the studio into a live stage performance that captivates their audience. Just as vocal coaching separates good singers from great singers, having a strong stage presence is what separates good performers from great performers. This form of coaching helps artists to identify ways in which they can utilize their talents to connect with their audience.
