Get Started

Studying Music Business with Andrea Smith from Miss Music Biz has helped me turn my music into a full time profession. I used to be a banana picker, but using the skills that I learnt from Andrea, I have now forged a career as an international recording and performing musician playing sell out concerts across Australia, Japan, USA and the Pacific and am a QLD Music Awards winner and Golden Guitar Award nominee that has my videos played on Country Music Channel. I really recommend young people to take their music to the next level through education with Miss Music Biz.

Who is Miss Music Biz?

Business is not a dirty word.

In the creative world of music and art, many talented professionals are struggling because they haven’t applied the same passion and tenacity to the business side of their careers as to the creative side.

But it doesn’t have to be that way.

I help musicians, creatives, and those aspiring to work in music gain the understanding and tools they need to work effectively in the music industry.

Think of me as the key, the wise mentor, the fairy godmother who can draw back the veil and provide a clear path for you with the confidence to move forward, perseverance and motivation to never give up, insights into the closed shop that music business has become, and a way through the gatekeepers.

People often start off making music for fun; I want to show you that you can make the business behind the music equally fun and easy.
