Course Description

Last Update February 2016: added If I Had To Start My Career From Scratch

As the artist Manafest I've sold over 300,000 albums worldwide over 1,000,000 singles and toured over 20 different countries.

I've spent the last 10 years touring playing live shows, writing songs and attending conferences improving and eventually succeeding in the music industry. I'm tired of artists being broke. I have friends that have sold over 1,000,000 records but because they haven't setup their business correctly are forced to get a part time job driving for Uber.

I have put this music industry crash course together for you - to which you have full lifetime access, including all the updates, for free.

I "take you by the hand" and "behind the scenes" and show you everything, explaining it in simple detail with videos and written support lectures.

See exactly why I'm so successful with my music career - see the stats in the free preview videos, below).
