The way musicians make a living has changed dramatically over the past 20 years. Thanks to the exploding popularity of streaming music platforms, the music industry has experienced a major shift in the way we see music monetisation in today’s music business.
Gone are the days of signing to a major label.
Currently, only 2250 artists get signed in a market of 8 million Music Artists searching for a record deal around the globe. With access to a laptop, basic plugins, headphones, midi controller and an internet connection, musicians are now taking matters into their own hands and creating their own means of income.
Mentoring and coaching is now the 2nd fastest growing industry in the world with more musicians and music educators turning to mentoring as means of steady income to compliment their gigging schedules.
Mentoring is a great way to share your experience, skill and knowledge with upcoming talent and emerging artists whilst helping them to achieve their goals, whilst guiding musicians through the various challenges of navigating through the music industry. Professional mentors can earn anywhere between $70-$150 per hour and generally charge higher fees than standard teaching rates (typically $30-$90 per hour). Professional mentors include coaching and counselling as part of their profession and work with mentee’s the help them overcome personal challenges, move beyond limited beliefs and help to achieve their goals quicker than any other approach.
If you love helping others develop their potential, mentoring is a great way to get a return on years of practice, learning and experience whilst making an impact in people’s lives. Most of the best mentors are also skilled producers who combine both producing with mentoring, working with A & R companies or record labels. Many professional mentors have at least 3 years informal teaching experience and have completed professional training or qualification.
