Mike Smith, president of Michael Smith and Associates, has launched the 2014 edition of his Artist Management Training Course. The course designed for those seeking a career as an artist manager, as well as for artists who want a better understanding of the industry and proven tools to move themselves forward.

This on-demand video teaching program features Smith and Kyle Johnson (Artist Manager with Michael Smith and Associates) talking with a number of music industry veterans including artist manager Jim Chaffee, John Mays (Centricity Music), Charles Dorris (Charles Dorris & Associates), Jan Smith (Behind the Voice Agency), Brian Mayes (Nashville Publicity Group), Brian Smith (Turning Point Media), Beth Hood-Fromm (OMG Publicity), performance coach Tom Jackson, social media expert Brody Harper (Skorinc) and many more.

“There has never been anything done like this before,” explains Smith, who has guided the careers of Restless Heart, Jaci Velasquez, Salvador, Chonda Pierce, Yancy, Denver & the Mile High Orchestra, Go Fish, comedian Brad Stine and more. “We have put together a massive on-line video training course for the entertainment industry. Using state of the art teaching technology and interviews with some of the most influential people in the business, this course is designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of every aspect of artist development. This is for serious folks who want to learn how to succeed in the industry as Artist Managers. I believe that passing on my years of experience, and all of the secrets to my success, will provide a thorough education for those who feel called to this field.”

New for 2014, Michael Smith and Associates will also be hosting a conference on artist management in Franklin, Tenn., on June 6. More details will be announced soon. Registration for the 2014 Artist Management Training Course closes on March 1. For more information, visit the Michael Smith & Associates website.
