RENMAN MUSIC & BUSINESS, the music industry mentoring website founded by music industry vet STEVE 'RENMAN' RENNIE, has launched RENMAN U, an online course designed to be "an insider's guide to today's music business," at: www.renmanu.com.
For a $99.99 enrollment fee, RENMAN U students will receive an interactive set of online video lessons designed to teach aspiring artists and music business professionals what it takes to succeed in the music industry - everything from making music, to music publishing, record labels, touring, building a professional team, marketing and promoting your music and understanding the key points in band agreements, record deals, publishing deals, management contracts and more. Course lessons are based on RENNIE's more than 36 years of experience at the highest levels in the business, and will include quizzes, written exams and more. An introductory RENMAN U video can be seen embedded below.
"This course is for any person who aspires to a career in the music business as an artist or a music professional," said RENNIE. "I'm going to explain, in a practical way, all the key areas of today's music business.
"When I started out, I was fortunate to have met some great mentors along the way - people who had been 'doing' for a long time - and they helped me fast track my learning; I'm going to do the same for you."
RENNIE, who has worked as a concert promoter (AVALON ATTRACTIONS), record company executive (EPIC RECORDS), Internet entrepreneur (ARTISTDIRECT) and artist manager (INCUBUS), is now dedicating himself to mentoring this next generation of artists and music pros who will shape the music industry of the future.
In 2012, he founded RENMAN MUSIC & BUSINESS; an online education portal for the music industry featuring a YOUTUBE channel with over 500 video clips featuring tips from industry pros; and a web show, "RENMAN Live," which has livestreamed over 100 episodes so far, and more. RENMAN's no-nonsense approach empowers artists to smash through the barriers and do what he hopes they will do: "Dream It. Do It."
