Designed for You.

You are driven, passionate, and creative. Even though you’ve only been out of school for a few years, you’re ready to make a difference in music – to create a more equitable ecosystem, to connect with the community you live in, to show funders that music and art matters and needs to be sustainable. You work for a music school; or an arts organization; or you’re starting your own thing; and maybe you’re still gigging. The Bootcamp was designed for you to get all of the skills you need to make a real impact in your current role while helping you take steps toward a leadership role so you can help guide the conversation about the future of the musical community.

We’ve curated lectures, case studies, and workshops with your career in mind, but after that part of the Bootcamp is done, you continue to have access to mentorship sessions with the faculty to continue your growth and get guidance to achieve your personal goals.

Are you ready?


What it is.

An intensive week-long series of online interactive workshops and case studies tailored around your work schedule that look at the leadership topics, skills, and tools you need as a young professional to help take you to the next level of your career in music or arts administration.

Who It’s For.

You’re a young professional who is a few years out from graduation currently working for or developing an arts organization – a music school, a festival, a 501(c)(3) – and you’re looking to make the move to a higher position and take your career and your organization to the next level.

What You Gain.

A unique set of skills, techniques, and knowledge that will allow you to enhance your career and grow as a leader by assessing targeted case studies that highlight current leadership issues facing the music world and actively working to develop the tools necessary to implement real world applications for addressing these issues.
