Dave Kusek's New Artist Model ( http://newartistmodel.com ) online course for independent musicians will start its first class on Monday, February 17, 2014. The 8-week course will be offered as a Master Class featuring personalized and individual coaching from Dave Kusek ( http://twitter.com/davekusek ) and also in a self-paced Essential Class.

The first class offering will be limited to 200 participants. Musicians can view several sneak preview videos with Dave Kusek at http://newartistmodel.com and http://newartistmodel.kajabi.com/sq/33329-get-the-life . Musicians can enroll now at http://newartistmodel.com/enroll/ .

The course's curriculum will help musicians create a career plan, how to build a team, how to book gigs and tours, how to collaborate in the digital era, how to make money and manage it, understand copyrights and licensing and publishing, time-management, crowdfunding and financing projects, digital marketing strategies, and how to build an audience and network. A full syllabus is available at http://newartistmodel.com/the-course.

"In the digital era, independent musicians have enormous opportunities to manage their own careers, but musicians themselves need to think more like entrepreneurs and coordinate and manage a wide variety of activities," states Kusek. "The idea behind this course is to teach musicians skills and knowledge to fully manage their careers, from planning through execution. After they have finished the course in just short eight weeks, musicians will be better prepared to orchestrate all the pieces and people who will help them succeed."

Dave Kusek has worked in the music business all of his life with independent musicians, songwriters, performers, and educators. In 2005 he co-wrote one of the best selling music business books, The Future of Music (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0876390599/futureofmusic-20/104-9870276-1729555 ), which has sold over 50,000 copies around the world. Kusek helped to get the MIDI technical standard started long ago and was a pioneer of digital music at Passport Music Software, where he helped hundreds of thousands of musicians create music.

As the founder and former CEO of Berkleemusic ( http://online.berklee.edu ), the world's largest music school, Kusek helped teach tens of thousands of students from around the world. Berkleemusic won the award for the Best Online Course eight years in a row from the University Professional & Continuing Education Association (UPCEA). Kusek taught music business at Berklee College of Music for 14 years and has worked with tens of thousands of musicians to help shape their careers. He has helped artists, songwriters, performers, promoters, managers, label executives, publishers, booking agents, and A&R reps looking for guidance.

New Artist Model is an essential online course and Success Framework for independent musicians, performers and songwriters. It teaches musicians to understand the dynamic music business ecosystem, how to build a team to support your goals and create opportunities in the marketplace, how to leverage multiple revenue streams including publishing, touring, merchandise, and recording, how to develop an online presence to grow and monetize your relationship with fans, how to understand the impact of copyright law and protect yourself and your music, how to budget and finance your projects, and how to get access to resources and people that can help grow a vital musician's network.

To get similar training from Berklee Online or Full Sail University, musicians would need to take certificate or degree programs costing tens of thousands of dollars and 2-3 years to complete. With New Artist Model, musicians can do it all in 8 weeks at a fraction of the cost.

New Artist Model offers both an Essential Class with access to the online course as well as a Master Class with personalized and individual coaching from Dave Kusek himself.
