Dave Kusek is the latest WeSpin Recipes guest, and he’s here to share his passion for coaching indie musicians. The founder and former CEO of Berklee Online, today Dave is focused on helping artists develop successful careers through his New Artist Model online music business school.
On the show, we talk about the program, how crazy and fascinating it is to be an artist these days, the need to understand what you’re good at, building a team around your craft, time management, and why you may not want to chase the next shiny thing online.
Listen to the show to also hear the tough truth about building a band (don’t rush into firing your drummer after hearing it, but think about what Dave says carefully), and to learn how to “sell” yourself to other business professionals.
