JAZZFUEL MANAGER

Support, tools & feedback to simplify your career plans and make some real progress with your project

monthly access, cancel anytime

If you don’t have a manager to help you organise your career, it’s easy to get distracted or tangled up with all the different things you ‘should’ be doing.

It’s also hard to set goals and stick to them, when there’s no one helping keep you accountable and, as a result, motivated!

The Jazzfuel Manager programme provides you with online ‘watch-when-you-want lessons’ and a great community of likeminded musicians and industry guests to make some big steps forward with your project.

Every project and career is different, so rather than having a fixed plan of what to work on, you can find resources, lessons and feedback on career-building areas such as getting reviews, Spotify, Facebook, mailing lists and more. 

It’s all online, there are no fixed-hours, but you do need to be ready and willing to put in some work each week!

If that sounds interesting, you can find out more below…

Here’s what’s you get:

  • Video sessions and Q&As hosted by industry guests from North America and Europe
  • Monthly members hangout on Zoom
  • Community support: access to a members-only forum where you can get feedback and support on anything you want and see what everyone else is working on.
  • Access to mini-courses & video tutorials on topics including social media, Spotify, mailing lists, Facebook, press campaigns and more.
  • Access to the Jazzfuel Manager vault: replay recordings of previous live sessions and trainings including Facebook ads, PR campaigns, career strategy and goal-setting.

Who teaches Jazzfuel Manager?

Firstly, it’s important to note that this isn’t like going to class.

This is totally self-paced and you get access to a wide range of tutorials and community features. It’s up to you to decide what are the most interesting and important things to you right now.

The platform is hosted by booking agent & manager Matt Fripp, who does the standalone course lessons and provides feedback in the private forum. You can also book 1-to-1 coaching sessions for an additional members-only fee.

However, there are also a range of industry guests who pass through the community to present coaching sessions and training, as well as to answer your questions.

The goal is not to take the advice of one person, but to get a range of information and suggestions and to figure out how it might best help your specific career.

As such, you should meet some useful contacts during the programme!

What’s included in the price?

  • Monthly 1-to-1 consulting call (by video, or text-chat if you prefer) to set your goals and plan your next steps
  • Video sessions and Q&As hosted by industry guests from North America and Europe
  • Monthly members hangout on Zoom
  • Community support: access to a members-only forum where you can get feedback and support on anything you want and see what everyone else is working on.
  • Access to mini-courses & video tutorials on topics including social media, Bandcamp, mailing lists, Facebook, press campaigns and more.
  • Access to the Jazzfuel Manager vault: replay recordings of previous live sessions and trainings including Facebook ads, PR campaigns, career strategy and goal-setting.

Money-back guarantee

We want you to get massive value from this programme!

If, during the first 2 weeks, you decide it’s not right for you, let us know and we will refund the full fee, no questions asked.

How much time will this take me?

First thing to be aware of is that everything is online, so no travel is required and you can participate from home.

Except for the 1-to-1 sessions and members hangout, everything else is recorded or text-based, so can be watched or used whenever you want.

To get real results from this, you do need to be able to put some time and work into it. We’d suggest you are available a minimum of 6 hours per month.
