Artist Development Program

Your Jumping Off Point For Success

A Music Vault Academy & Soundcheck Artists Program

What Is Artist Development?

Artist Development is the process any musician goes through to develop their craft and skills necessary to build a professional career in the music industry. This means everything from voice, songwriting, image and branding, music and video production, live performance, marketing and social media.

Artist development in the music industry has changed since the advent of iTunes, internet and social media. The days of being “discovered” by a record label are all but gone, leaving most of the early progress to the artists themselves.

It used to be that the label would find an up and coming talent and develop them within the label. But now this development is left up to the artist, often them leaving them with the question, “Where do I start?”

Our Artist Development Program bridges the gap between being an aspiring musician and becoming a professional by teaching you what you need to create a lucrative, long-lasting career in music.

What does our Program do?

Our Artist Development Program bridges the gap between being a recreational, aspiring musician and becoming a professional by teaching our clients what they need in order to create a lucrative, long-lasting career in music.

We help the artist build a commercially viable product, establish a fan base, attain critical music business skills and create well-produced music and videos.

  • Image creation and maintenance
  • Plan of action, goal setting
  • Exceptional promotion materials, including photographs, press releases, and artwork
