About This Course

Published 11/2015 English

Course Description

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 signed & negotiated Record Deals with Major Labels such as EMI and Sony Music as well as many independent labels around the world.

Over the last 10 years I continued to play live shows, write songs and attending conferences improving and teaching my students everything I know 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.

  • Overcome Stage freight & Perform With Confidence

Section 1: Show Preparation
My Story: How I Got Started Touring

4 time Juno Award nominee, Author & over 1,000 shows rocked on 4 continents!!!

The Foundation Of a Good Show Is Good Songs!

Overcoming stage freight comes from practice & experience.


Enter the stage like you are the leader of a marching band. Take control of the room


Makes a big difference but don't overdue it.


Getting the right team around you is super important. Don't just hire for talent but attitude, integrity and communication.


Setting up rehersals are crucial to a great performance.


Some experiences from eating too much food before a show I'll never forget>>> :)


How to put together a set list and where to put it.

Section 2: Engaging The Crowd

One of my frustrations with artists is they won't learn how to speak on their feet or even rehearse what to say between songs.


You can win over the audience every time. let me show you how. Also how to turn them around.


Making eye contact without staring too long makes people feel welcome.


Sharing your story is a powerful way to connect with your audience and build a fanbase.


Story Opening Up For Tim Tebow

Section 3: How To Move On The Stage
Power Stances
Creating Moments In Your Show That Engage The Audience

Learn to laugh and use sound difficulties to your advantage instead of getting embarrassed.

How To Use The Mic Stand Effectively
Breath Control

I use Ableton Live to trigger our tracks as well as sync our videos.


You can hire a lighting guy to come with you over have Ableton Live setup with Midi to control it. If your touring with another band you can always pay there lighting and ask them to run lights for you.


It's great to collaborate and plan with your band or dancers a routine for the show.


When I FIRST started we used vinyl, Tapes, CD's, iPod and now Ableton Live off our Mac laptop


Another way to engage the crowd and let your personality/brand shine through.

Section 5: Business of Performing & Making Money At The Show

Learn to sell from stage will increase fan engagement and merchandise sales. Take the time and learn what it is you will say to the crowd each night.


Having good merchandise and a nice setup for people to see your shirts, CD's & posters will increase your sales. If you need a logo or shirt design check out my wife's work:


This lecture teaches you the formula and template I used to book $10,000 worth of shows every month.


1 page

Stage Plot is necessary when advancing your shows. Here is a sample one of mine.

Stage Plot Overview
3 pages

a Rider is what the promoter receives breaking down your sound, lights, food, hotel and other requirements for the show.

2 pages

Backline rider is what band gear you require including: Drums, Amps, Mics etc. See mine attached for reference.

Backline Rider Request Overview

Getting sponsors for your event is easier then you think especially if you have a fanbase and people showing up to your concerts. Just make sure your not selling out to anyone and that you believe in the product your promoting.
