The mission of Kansas City Jazz ALIVE is to:
E-Provide EXPOSURE to applicable resources for the Kansas City jazz community
The “Exposure Committee” wanted to find a way to address the unemployment issues area musicians presently face. Realizing that many musicians will not secure musical work on a consistent basis, but can explore other employment opportunities/options to achieve the same goals, the “Exposure Committee” formed the “Musicians Assisting Musicians” (MAM) speaker and workshop series.
Musicians Assisting Musicians – The Business of Jazz 2017
KC Jazz ALIVE is proud to announce our upcoming MAM event for Kansas City musicians on September 15, 2017 from 9am – 5pm. MAM will be hosted at the Mary L. Kelly Center (2803 E 51st Street, Kansas City, MO 64130). The all day workshop and sessions will benefit area musicians by helping them fine-tune existing performance skills and secure employment opportunities. MAM will provide guidance to musicians who wish to enhance their careers in jazz.
Professionals will be present to discuss marketing, technology, financial assistance, healthcare and employment opportunities. Musicians will walk away from the workshop with: a professional photo to use for online promotion, tips on how to fully utilize online marketing tools, knowledge of the business aspects of creating music and much more!
