Your Exceptional Record: An Online Course in Creating Your Breakthrough Album Release

Your Exceptional Record: How to Create Your Breakthrough Album Release is an 12 week, 8 module online training course “live” with Cari Cole ,Celeb Vocal Coach, Artist Development Expert + Music Business Mentor.

A record that is planned and conceptualized from the grand vision to the smallest details, and with the right team of players, makes the difference in a record that will actually go the distance. In this course you will work directly with Cari and a select group of artists on all of the aspects of how to create an Exceptional Record – a breakthrough release.   During this program, you will be guided through the process of not only how to record a great record, but all of the details for how to prepare, get crystal clear on your music + direction, select your best songs, create a signature sound, crystalize your style and genre, emerge more powerfully with who you are as an artist and nail your genre and where you fit in the record business. Cari personally listens to every artist’s music in the group and tailors her direction for YOUR particular sound, personality, and brand.

Artists who have followed Cari’s mentorship during the making of their records have achieved all of the above as well as have signed recording, management and licensing deals as a direct result of this guidance.

The program consists of 8 live online sessions with Cari and the group, assignments, worksheets and personalized instruction as you move through each the class content. There are special guests from the industry in each course: Grammy winning producers and engineers and you have access to all of the past YER interviews as well when you enroll. Artists are not expected to have a finished record upon completion, but rather will have all the tools and techniques for recording their exceptional release at their fingertips. The program also hosts a private Facebook Group Page where assistance and guidance will be given throughout the program and each member will be assigned an Accountability Pod to deepen their experience and learning.

This course is perfect for you if you are currently making a record or are in the planning stages of your next project.
