Musicians Turning Creativity Into Business Savvy

Cincinnati Music Accelerator's inaugural class of five students completed their course in September.

Cincinnati Music Accelerator, which calls itself Ohio’s first career accelerator program for musicians and recording artists, graduated its first class this fall. Program Founder Kick Lee knows firsthand how cut-throat the recording industry can be. That's why the accelerator arms musicians and recording artists with business savvy. In the six-week course they learn to monetize their talents and license their creative work. Lee launched the first session this summer with a grant fromPeople's Liberty and the second session begins this November.

Here to discuss the program are Cincinnati Music Accelerator Founder and Music Producer Kick Lee; Business Finance Instructor Micah Dickson; and Press Coach Jimmy Dollard.
