Other Coaches and Consultants
Over the years Indie Connect has developed relationships with hundreds of music industry experts in every sector and at every level of the industry. Many of these industry pros are available for private coaching and consulting.
Unfortunately, we have seen so many artists and songwriters being misled because they got their advice or counseling from less-than-reputable sources. So it is our goal to help you connect with an honest and very capable coach or consultant who will never mislead you and who will be of tremendous service to you. Of course, fees vary based on the coach, but many of them give us deals not available to the general public. Some of the categories in which we have relationships include...
