BAND Management course
Rockin’ On is a business development program for AMP bands that uses music as the vehicle for teaching entrepreneurship.
In AMP Summer Camp and AMP’s year round programs, musicians learn how to write, rehearse, and perform music in a new community of musicians. So it’s no surprise that many of our students go on to form bands with their peers outside of AMP (we call these bands our AMPbassador bands!). But how do these teenagers navigate booking shows, building a fanbase, and making money outside of the organization and structure of AMP?
AMP’s Rockin’ On program aims to give our students a pathway to success by teaching them how to navigate, on their own, the basics of a career in music. Bands will identify their goals, develop release plans for their own music, book their own shows, make merchandise, learn the basics of branding + advertising, and understand how to healthily run a business that provides services — all without the help of their parents!
Rockin’ On is a 12-week program that is flexible, meeting roughly every week. Tuition for this unique program is low at $500. Invest in your child’s current and future success and contact us today about your band.
