My musical career has gained momentum mostly because of the strategies New Artist Model has helped me put in place. So, THANK YOU for helping me sort out a way to pay the bills with a career in music, and for helping me to think outside the box. This is the life I want, love and cherish.” – Saskia

What is New Artist Model?

New Artist Model is an online music school for independent musicians, producers, managers and songwriters that will give you the business and marketing skills necessary for developing a fulfilling and sustainable career in music.

Get step-by-step instruction to solving those big questions like “How can I make more money” or “How do I get more people to show up at my gigs?” or “How do I promote my music?”

Make a bigger impact and get more recognition without wasting time. Learn anywhere, anytime - even on the road or in the studio - and apply everything you learn right away with the resources and tools you already have.

Think of New Artist Model courses as hyper-focused, super-practical, mini music degrees at a fraction of the cost of traditional college courses. Created by Dave Kusek, the founder of Berklee Online and co-author of the bestselling music business book, Future of Music, what you get is a lifetime of music business knowledge straight from the man who founded the world’s largest music school.
