WHAT ARE OUR STUDENTS SAYING?
Street Avenue Music
Producer, Little Rock, Ark, Group Class
I have been studying the business of music for years. With the changing of formats from cds to digital, I found myself lost in all the new ways to make an income. I have spoken with many individuals and read many articles but it only confused me more, to the point I considered giving up.
I got the opportunity to attend a class offered by Strangelady which reignited my desire to make money off my music. Not only was the class informative, the information was presented in such a way, you could not help but want to be successful. Mrs Strange took the time to make sure we understood everything, even extended class time to answer any questions. She is always available if you find yourself needing sound advice.
I recommend her class to anyone who is serious about making it in this new era of music business. Thanks you for giving us your knowledge continuously. She is the best!
