This is a course for aspiring musicians and artists. The course will teach you how to correctly promote your work on social media and other online marketing strategies.

The course is a mixture of an interview with a musician named Sarantos who is successfully using social media to promote his music, and tutorials from me on some of the common marketing and business practices that musicians and artists should be aware of.
