Say Hello To Your New Science Teachers.
Musician Labs is a one-of-a-kind, no-nonsense, instructional series and mentoring program for aspiring songwriters, dedicated to teaching the proven principles necessary for sustaining a successful career in the music business.
Co-founded and taught directly by legendary Nashville power-couple, Monty Powell and Anna Wilson, Musician Labs engages with students to offer a series of intensive workshops, lectures and demonstrations. Students learn directly from Monty and Anna as they teach and apply the Musician Labs Scientific Process – the same series of proprietary formulas that have generated the songwriting DNA on their over 70 Million RIAA-Certified records.
Monty and Anna’s songs have topped music charts for decades. Both together and individually, the two routinely write and produce hits for the who’s who in American Country and Popular music - names like Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, Rascal Flatts, Reba McEntire and Tim McGraw (to name a mere handful). The list of awards they’ve amassed along the way serves as the ultimate evidence of their credibility – much in the same way that a doctorate degree qualifies a scientist, or a professor, or any working professional to teach from the top of their game.
By the conclusion of the Lab series, Musician Labs guarantees every student will have completed the course having written a song that is “above the bar” by the highest industry standards and carries the Musician Labs professional stamp of approval.
MusicianLabs / Alchemy
Included with every registration, students have the option of creating a Musician Labs Alchemy page - their own dedicated song portfolio on MusicianLabs.com where students can upload their recordings, share them with their peers, and have them heard by an audience of industry pros. Alchemy is a curated networking platform and resume solution for students who want to be seen and heard with the support and endorsement of the Musician Labs name. (Think LinkedIn for songwriters.)
Yes, science. Great songwriting, in particular hit songwriting, is achieved through a series of formulas. We've proven it time and time again. To sustain life as a career songwriter, you've got to know what the formulas are and how to put them to use. To realize this level of success is to realize the science behind it.
Successful songwriting doesn't come from luck. It's not a product of some divine inspiration. It's not on reserve for the gifted. It's not exclusive to the most creative. Successful songwriting is calculable, is procedural, and is controllable. It's a science.
Understanding and teaching you the science is what separates Musician Labs from all the other vacation-type songwriting camps that are out there. Do you want to know how to substantially improve? Do you want your music to be taken seriously? Do you want to know if you have what it really takes to achieve a successful career in music? Or do you want to sit around a fire pit and sing Kumbaya?
That's what we thought. Contact Us.
You've had some success as a songwriter but you haven't reached the level you want to be at and maybe you're in a bit of a rut. Musician Labs will help you sharpen your craft while incorporating the science that's been missing from your approach. Get there (we'll see that you do) and unlock Business Action Labs to ignite your career prospects.
