Music Producer Mastermind Meeting 2018

Music Producer Mastermind Meeting 2018

The first Music Producer Mastermind Meeting was held in Love and Laughter Studios in Anaheim, CA (Jan. 25-28, 2018). On this panel, we talk about how to get placements, how to connect with other producers, and much more!

This is Day 2 of 4.

This seminar was full of strategies you can apply as a music producer in this modern music business.

Main topics of the panel discussions were interrelated and revolved around the following themes/lessons:

  • Building your brand/reputation: What pops in someone’s head when they think of you? What comes easy to you and difficult to others?
  • Goal-setting: Crucial step in any business/profession/passion. What are you trying to accomplish and more importantly, why? (Asking so what over and over again)
  • Setting your intention: Creating specific goals for the beat/project/outcome
  • Developing a message: Create content that speaks to an audience
  • Naming your projects: Song and beat title psychology (similar to other psychologies in fast-food (yellow/red colors), shopping, consumer behavior)
  • Narrowing your focus: Avoiding changing goals and being sidetracked by different distractions; such as fame, awards, number of streams/plays
  • Work Ethic/Commitment: Working hard, discipline and being consistent
  • Authenticity: Earning trust (Universal trait in all aspects life). Producers only work with people that they trust
  • The Journey of Self-discovery
  • The Power of Relationships: Creating value for those above you in vertical relationships (Thirst vs. Hunger)
  • Understand the business: Don’t just have your head down making beats or songs for years 
  • Independence in the Music Business: Distribution, assessing and reaching communities, monetizing your products, exploring business models, contracts, splits
  • Building and maintaining email lists: Creating a community and providing value to your followers
  • Routines/life hacks: Work techniques – Pomodoro Technique (Time management/Avoiding fatigue)
  • How to get better at producing: Practice remaking songs you like, study the billboards, constant re-evaluation and improving sound, seek feedback
  • Investing in your future: First invest time to earn money than invest money to buy time
  • 10X rule: Whatever you think you are going to do. It’s 10 times harder than you think 
  • Teaching: If you can teach you can lead and generate another stream of income while helping others enhance their skill-sets
  • Influence: Impacting the world through growth and contribution
