Description of Services

So You Want to be a Singer? 
This presentation is designed for Elementary School I & II, Middle School I & II and High School I & II students, especially those attending Performing Arts Schools. 

Ms. Cartwright guides students through the 20 chapters in her book, SO, YOU WANT TO BE A SINGER?, educating them on the business of the music industry and the materials they need to be successful in this business.

There is role playing, e.g. agent vs. artist; promoter vs. venue manager, etc.  Students are required to pose for photographs and perform and record a song.  They learn about rehearsing with musicians, how to get a singing or performing job and how to promote themselves.

The book is required reading and covers several subjects on music history, composition and business.

Students converse intelligently about music as a profession and agent for income. They understand the importance of reading contractual agreements before signing them and protecting their musical production with copyrights and publishing. They know how to conduct themselves with other musicians.
