Music Industry Seminars

I love to teach, and that’s a fact.

Uplifting creative people with ideas and solutions has always been a passion of mine.
So when I’m a Seminar guest speaker, for me it’s always about what I know, that people can use to help with their own careers, not just a list of my own accomplishments.
