Imagine Where Your Business Would Be If You Started Months Ago, Just Like Our Students

“Before I found smartistU I struggled to find a resource that had what I needed to help navigate the music industry. I wanted to go full time but lacked the knowledge and resources it takes to make it. Since joining smartistU I have started my own management company, built a tiny house and office, signed two artists and achieved my year-long goals. The resources that smartistU provides are game-changers for anyone wanting to be a mover and shaker in this industry!”

Sarah Fleshner, 362 Entertainment
