Summary: The Entrepreneurial Essentials for Musicians Masterclass is led by award-winning composer, best-selling author, veteran podcaster, and Content Marketing Musician Founder & CEO David Andrew Wiebe. The masterclass supports musicians in shifting their mindset from musician to musicpreneur.
Most musicians would not come right out and admit "My attitude sucks," or "The way I'm thinking is what's dragging down my career."
Yet, when push comes to shove, many actively avoid rejection, do very little to build industry connections, and don't do much to get their music out to the masses, save for a few flaccid "Please support indie bands" type Facebook posts.
So, why do artists give up so easily? What is the missing piece?
There are a few words to describe the hidden ingredient:
In these circles, we call it "mindset."
If any of the following applies to you, then you've come face to face with situations that require a stronger mindset:
• You gave up cold-calling venues for gigs after being told "no" just once.
• You stopped sending emails to music reviewers after getting no response.
• Your world turned upside down when someone at your last gig said, "Your music sucks."
Of course, getting rejected isn't exactly a walk in the park. But any artist looking to grow their fan base will encounter resistance on their journey.
What Does the Entrepreneurial Essentials for Musicians Masterclass Promise?
Entrepreneurial Essentials for Musicians Masterclass' promise is simple. When you take the course, you'll have the opportunity to:
• Upgrade your attitude. Cultivate a positive, can-do, go-getter mindset that will see you moving to action when you feel like shrinking back and staying in a rut.
• Level up your mindset. See your music career through fresh eyes – identify possibilities and opportunities where previously no pathways existed.
• Be empowered in creating the life you love through music. This is our mission at Content Marketing Musician – to create resources and to provide you with opportunities that help you live your dream life, no matter what that may be.
How Much Does the Course Cost?
The course is priced at just $97 USD, and it includes:
• 15 concise video lessons with full transcripts.
• Links to tools and resources mentioned in the course.
• Lifetime access to course updates (new content is added periodically, which only makes the course more valuable over time).
• Of course, you can learn at your own pace, at a time that's convenient for you too!
What's Included in the Course?
Just to be exact, we added up the runtime of each video and found that the course amounts to two hours, eight minutes, and 36 seconds of content.
In case that seems overwhelming, though, we'll make it known that the average length of each lesson comes to about three and a half minutes. Very manageable.
The longest piece of content inside the course area is an interview course instructor David (more on him later) gave for The Music Money Podcast, which came to over 50 minutes.
But we have it on good authority David plans to add another lesson soon, about problem-solving. Rumor has it David may be adding a PDF summarizing the key concepts in the course as well.
Therein lies one of the benefits of the course, because as a customer, you get access to lifetime updates, no matter how many new lessons are added.
It's worth noting, though, that the course originated as a masterclass on Musical U
. As such, Musical U Founder and Director Christopher Sutton also appears as host during the introduction, first six lessons, masterclass recap, and masterclass Q&A lessons.
Seeing an opportunity to expand on the topics covered, however, David decided to add several new lessons, upgrading the course with additional invaluable insights.
In total, the Entrepreneurial Essentials for Musicians Masterclass covers vital mindset and entrepreneurial topics, like:
• How entrepreneurs think, and how this applies to music
• How to cultivate a long-term mindset and why you should
• Taking responsibility for your growth as a musicpreneur
• How to practice consistency in building your career
• Validating your offer / legitimizing your music career
• And more
Besides 15 video lessons, buyers also get access to links and resources mentioned in the course, as well as a full transcript for every video.
What Does the Course Help You Accomplish?
Many musicians struggle to leap from musician to musicpreneur. It's understandable. The old, haunted path is littered with landmines and with the frightened majority who scream, "It can't be done!"
But it can be done, and making this mindset shift would allow artists to seek and identify opportunities outside of convention and blaze a trail that would lead them to build the career of their dreams.
Without a strong foundation in mindset, however, most artists end up in an infinite loop of flailing and failing, never getting anywhere, and eventually giving up out of frustration.
The Entrepreneurial Essentials for Musicians Masterclass will help you realize just how limitless opportunities are. The only catch? The opportunities need to be created, and you need to be the one creating them. It all starts with you!
If you're ready to become your greatest cheerleader instead of waiting for someone else to pick up the torch (hope is not a strategy), then this course is for you.
Who is the Course Instructor?
The Entrepreneurial Essentials for Musicians Masterclass is taught by music business expert David Andrew Wiebe, who has been writing songs for 27 years, playing guitar for 24 years, and helping musicians build their fan base and careers for 12 years.
The Music Money Podcast host Barry Nicholson also appears later in the course, as he interviews David about The Essential Guide to Music Entrepreneurship.

Entrepreneurial Essentials for Musicians Masterclass, The Verdict
Like him or hate him, motivational coach Tony Robbins says success is 80% psychology. We take him at his word.
What could be more important than mindset for artists? Nothing. Yet how many musician coaches or course providers cover mindset in any capacity? Very few, if any.
Sure, it may not be a sexy topic. But it's crucial to cover.
Course instructor David Andrew Wiebe was a network marketer for five years, has read over 200 books, and has taken dozens of in-person and online personal development programs. He has even come out on the other side of the world's most challenging two-year intensive leadership program more empowered. We can't think of anyone better to teach this material than him.
With over two hours of content, the Entrepreneurial Essentials for Musicians Masterclass is littered with gold nuggets many people take years to learn. As a teacher, one of David's strengths is simplifying complicated topics and explaining them in a manner that anyone can understand. And this ability is on full display here.
The course's cost is modest, considering the value that can be found within. If all the course did was armor you against the criticism that is sure to be launched against you, it would already be worth the cost. But the course goes above and beyond in delivering mindset concepts and principles that have stood the test of time.
So, if you're ready to level up your mindset...
