Why Study with Steve Nixon?

Before Steve began mentoring me, I was unable to make a living in music without supplementing my income with a day job.
Now making music is my only job. Steve taught me how to build a successful teaching studio and market myself as a performer.
I am so grateful!

Working with Steve helped me turn my music business chaos into clarity. It was definitely good to get Steve's expert opinion."

I found our mentoring sessions to be extremely helpful. Steve is truly professional and passionate about what he does for a living. His experiences as a full time musician, the music industry and knowledge of cutting edge marketing techniques have given me the tools I need in order to succeed as a full time musician. Most importantly, I feel more confident in myself and have a better understanding of what I need to do in order to achieve my career goals. Steve has earned my referral and I look forward to working with him in the future.

Thanks,
