The Power of Networking:

Ten Aggressive Strategies for Success
in the Modern Music Business

on Wednesday, June 12, 2013 in Atlanta

Don’t be shy! This hardcore workshop is just what you need to whip you into shape!

One of the nation’s top authorities on careers in the music business, industry leader Tess Taylor, offers participants an unforgiving look at what works and what doesn’t in the modern music business.

This no-sugar-coating workshop will show you where and how to look for opportunities and how to pitch yourself, your artists and your projects.

It will also show you how to strip your presentation (in person or in print) down to the essentials, highlighting the achievements and skills that will impress an employer, executive or talent buyer so that you get interviews, deals and dates!

“If you apply the principles learned in my workshop,” says Tess, “you’ll walk out with practical strategies you can use TODAY and a top-notch resume or press kit and that will set you apart. My workshop has one objective: TO GET YOU CALLED BACK, GET TO ‘YES’ AND HIRED NOW!”

Brutal yet sophisticated, critical yet honest, this workshop is not for the weak! Described as “aggressive, rough, raw, vigorous, demanding and merciless,” this approach will get you in shape, making you more efficient, professional and desirable to industry employers. Filled with humor, real-life examples, and proven strategies, this workshop isn’t just theory, Tess gets people jobs! (See RECENTLY HIRED at

Dubbed “the International Music Ambassador” by P.J. Bloom (music supervisor of the Glee franchise, CSI: Miami) and known as the “Super Connector,” Tess has connected countless people to opportunities through her work in the US and abroad over the course of two decades,


“Tess Taylor is one of the great resources of the music business. She’s a walking job fair,” according to Hollywood Today Publisher & Editor, Jeffrey Jolson-Colburn. Not only that, but “Tess has amazing insights into where the business is going and combines that savvy with a Rolodex the size of a SUV.”

Says Tess, “It’s never too soon to start acting like a professional and to grow your network.”

Selected to perform at the 2011 LAMN Jam Music Contest by Ms. Taylor and her staff, the Mowglis went on to win not only the grand prize (a $30K artist development package), but the hearts and souls of the talent judges… as well as a management contract. One of the talent judges – Antony Bland (longtime A&R executive, most recently at Rick Rubin’s American Recordings), signed the band immediately. From there, they acquired a talent agent and were signed to a record deal with Universal / Photo Finish Records, have been featured on network television and are getting radio airplay on top stations across the nation.
