Have you ever wanted to create your own arts or music-related non-profit, but you don't know where to start? Maybe you have an amazing idea for a music business, but you don't know the first step. We understand! As musicians, we don't generally learn all the ins-and-outs of starting a business. By the end of this bootcamp, students will have a working simple business plan that they can use right away to start their own business or organization, as well as all the tools, skills, and connections they need to be successful. Students will learn virtually through Zoom with lectures, presentations, projects/activities, and special guest artist presentations. On the last class, students will meet in-person in Dallas at our Common Desk location for final presentations and a pizza party.


Students will:

  • Learn about different business structures and the best one for their business idea

  • Hear from guest speakers from the music business and music non-profit industry

  • Create their own simple business plan that they can use right away

  • Gain invaluable networking with our Texas Music Institute faculty members, industry professionals, and their own peers in the bootcamp.

  • A musical "home," where students will always be able to come back to for advice, musical help, letters of recommendation, etc.

Note: in this bootcamp, there will be outside work the students will be expected to complete on their own, like market research, revising their business plan, creating their PowerPoint presentation, etc.


At the end of the bootcamp, students will present their business plan powerpoints at our Common Desk location.
