BUILD YOUR BRAND (Music Business) 

Build Your Brand Square

Now more than ever, musicians, songwriters, and music entrepreneurs must know how to connect with an audience not only with sound, but with visual content and a unique story. At times, an artist’s image is every bit as meaningful as their musical catalogue. This class will explore how to BUILD YOUR BRAND as an artist and/or artist manager! Instructor, Stephanie Belcher, works as a strategist and consultant in the metro Detroit arts and music scene. She has helped many entrepreneurs, artists, and musicians execute their big ideas. In addition, she is a fierce entrepreneur, who owns and operates several businesses devoted to marketing, promotion, and booking local and regional artists and musicians. With a background in marketing, business management, and accounting, she brings a valuable perspective to her students.
