Industry veteran Jim Halsey has launched the Starmaker360 app for those wanting to learn more about the music and entertainment industry or advance their careers. Halsey digs into the fundamentals on the app: how to develop an act, how to get an agent, how to use the press to build your audience, how to play the biggest and best forums, etc..
The Jim Halsey Music Business Institute launched the app in partnership with MusicTO. The Starmaker360 courses contain informative interviews from key artists and innovative industry leaders such as Dr. Jim Halsey and his clients of 45 years, including: The Oak Ridge Boys, Dwight Yoakam, Roy Clark, Doc McGhee (CEO of McGhee Entertainment), Brian O’Connell (President of Live Nation Country Touring), Paul Sizelove (Vice-President of Gaither Music Group), Jeremy Westby (CEO of 2911 Media), and many others.
“I am so pleased to launch this program through the global iOS and Android app platform,” says Halsey. “All of the relationships we’ve built for decades will be a huge benefit to everyone wanting to learn more about the music and entertainment business. We were the first collegiate music business degree program (Oklahoma City University) receiving national accreditation as well as the Oklahoma Governor’s Arts and Education Award. This gives us another opportunity to share a wealth of knowledge and creative connectivity to thousands of app users.”
“I have personally seen the life altering effect that education has on individuals who have the unique opportunity to gain access to world class teachers who can assist them with achieving a career they dreamed of,” said Daniel J Steneker, Chairman of MusicTO Steneker. “As Chairman of MusicTO, partnered with Jim Halsey, we expect that the life experience of Dr. Halsey, delivered through our program, will make a long lasting impact on participants throughout their music industry careers. I believe the app technology deployed for the Institute delivers an exceptional level of interactivity between students and allows them to post commentary or share videos and audio tracks with other students or with Jim Halsey himself. Through sharing very detailed interest profiles, students meet and form bonds with other students whose interests are aligned with theirs.”
The first 500 students to download the Starmaker360 app will receive a special introductory price of $199 for access to the entire program.
