HOW IT WORKS

One-on-one mentorship sessions may be purchased individually or are included with our online courses.

Not sure who to book with? Our staff is happy to make recommendations to ensure that your experience is as beneficial as possible. Purchase 5, 10, or 15 hour discounted packs to book multi-hour sessions or to book with multiple different mentors and receive a wide range of expertise.

The mentorship sessions are your opportunity to get your burning questions answered, focus on a specific production workflow or technique, network and gain valuable industry insider knowledge, and to finish great sounding music.

 

This time is all about helping you reach your goals.

 

When booking your session please be sure to answer the questions and provide as much detailed relevant information as possible.

All sessions are conducted through Zoom which offers high-quality audio, screen sharing, and remote desktop control. This allows your mentor to dive right into your project file and work right alongside you. It’s as if you have them in the room with you!

Your mentor will send you the Zoom link on the day of your session.
