Eleven Music Career Center - Happy Female Musician and Guitar Player

Is Music Your Calling But Don’t Know Where to Start?

You’re feeling overwhelmed. Confused. Frustrated. Maybe even a little scared.

And the icing on top: your parents want to see you pursue the “college-stable job-status quo” lifestyle that everyone has.

So when you go to them and express an interest in music, they try to persuade you that music is only a hobby and to focus on a “real” career instead.

I get it. On the surface, music can seem like a risky career move.

But when you have guidance, a plan, and focus on yourself and what you want, the path forward becomes clear and you feel empowered to take one step at a time.

My search for music career coaching lead me to Eleven. We started our coaching sessions with life planning, and it lead me to start some important conversations with people that I had been putting off for a long time. Once I had those conversations, I gained all kinds of clarity regarding what I truly wanted. Obstacles dissolved and suddenly I had a path forward.

I’ve had a great experience with Eleven. As someone starting out in the music industry, I’ve had a lot of questions about how things work, what to prioritize, and so on. These guys have been around the block and have had some terrific insights and helped me avoid some pitfalls! I plan to keep on working with them — they are knowledgeable, listen well and tailor their coaching to a person’s individual situation. Highly recommended!

John

Great support for up-and-coming musicians. Eleven’s one-on-one check-ins and thoughtful advice definitely helped accelerate our growth as a band!

Ty

He wanted to know what success looked like to *me,* and how they could help me advance *my* goals. He looked at the things I’m doing and how I could do them even better. Did I advance my goals? Did I see success? I sure did! I improved my recording quality, made decisions that streamlined my schedule, earned more money, and learned things. And though that is wonderful and useful and what I set out to do, I think the most important part of my time with Eleven was that I felt less like I was “trying” to be a “real” musician. It really helped my impostor syndrome.

Amy

The width and depth of knowledge about the music industry is immediately apparent through Eleven. If you are considering music as a career, or to level up what you’ve already established, I cannot recommend them enough!
