Season Three Is Almost Here!

Mentors - no text

It may have seemed a little quiet around #musiciio HQ of late but hey, it’s been pretty hectic behind the scenes as we madly prepare for the launch of SEASON THREE next month.

The addition of 29 new mentor interviews takes our total list of course mentors up to 90 experienced industry figures, which will translate to about 50+ hours worth of articulate, real-world, truth-talking, best-practice advice to help you make a living in music whether you’re a musician or an industry worker or just need a fresh update on the whole shebang!
