Beginner Subscription Package Created to Provide Indie Musicians with Crucial Basic Skills to Begin Navigating the Often-Complex Music Business and Start Working Toward Profitability

Newly-introduced music education and artist development platform, TEAM (Transcend Entertainment and Music), today announced a major supplementary services package offering, TEAM Essential Training. The program was developed to help indie musicians with many of the initial – or essential – knowledge components and skills necessary to create quality music and learn to navigate challenges of the new DIY landscape of today's music industry. This affordable basic service was designed to act as a first-tier preparatory monthly subscription package that prepares one for entry into the upper-tier flagship service offering, TEAM Premium Access, which was unveiled October 11th. Both music education programs are heavily-focused on teaching musicians how to profit from music licensing opportunities and both packages leverage the importance of the community support network provided via TEAM’s “Family” of musicians, composers, and producers.

TEAM founder and CEO, Gary Gray, is an award-winning musician, Voting Member of the Grammy® Recording Academy, author, composer, producer, and engineer who has decades of music industry experience. Gray regularly earns a six-figure income from licensing and production of his own music masterpieces year after year and is hired by entertainment behemoths including 20th Century Fox and The Disney Music Group. He has been personally mentored by legendary music icons such as Quincy Jones, Chick Corea, Lamont Dozier, and Phil Collins, yet still finds time to pursue his passion for mentoring and apprenticing Indie Musicians all over the world.

“I started TEAM and designed and programmed its core services to fill what I saw as a glaring gap in providing what serious music professionals need in order to make the leap from hobbyist to revenue-earning music pro,” Gary Gray explained. “While our TEAM Premium Access service provides a complete end-to-end solution for achieving this – from start to finish, some of the initial feedback from musicians made me realize there are many elementary steps of the journey we could offer at an introductory rate. My ultimate goal is to enable TEAM to help an even larger number of musicians kick-start their music careers!”

Backed by over 30 years of research, TEAM transcends the traditional artist/record label business model by providing musicians with the missing links necessary to achieve consistent masterpiece quality music that can generate profits. TEAM Essential Training is a lower-cost subscription service curated to show musicians how to build a business model around their music through music licensing, music production, marketing and promotion, music business communications, networking, and deal-making skills. For a reasonable monthly subscription fee of $39 (or $390 annually, purchased in advance), TEAM Essential Training provides an easy-to-follow guide that teaches artists how to create the music they love and, at the same time, make money with it. The program plants the seeds to build momentum and learn how to accelerate a promising music career to unlock new and exciting opportunities.

TEAM realizes that the more hyper-personalized, high-touch mentoring and training provided by its TEAM Premium Access package may not be the right solution for every musician’s budget and skill or knowledge level at any given time. To make its capabilities available to an even larger number of global musicians, TEAM Essential Training courses allow TEAM to still share many of its excellent resources and to slowly welcome even more promising musical talents to become thriving members of its Worldwide music community (or “Family”, as its affectionately called within the company). By making many of the platform’s first-phase training materials available to the general public – and at a significant discount - TEAM Essential Training program grants access to many powerful tools to help musicians succeed in their musical journeys and achieve lucrative income through music licensing. Specifically, the full range of meticulously curated TEAM Essential Training courses includes the following:

  • Music Business Accelerator
  • Marketing Power Tools
  • Lucrative Home Studio
  • Get Your Music Licensed

While still celebrating its groundbreaking first months as a company, many new TEAM “Family Members” are already experiencing their first payouts from their music projects. TEAM member Paul Armendariz has already scored major licensing deals from a Cox Communications advertisement, a placement with Call of Duty and Crew 2 video games, and for the popular “America’s Got Talent” network TV program. Armendariz recounts, “TEAM gave me the skills, direction, and industry know-how to take my music from a concept in my head at my studio to having my work broadcast to millions – while still rewarding me financially for my music.”

Unlike competitors that have flooded the online music training sphere with do-it-yourself bits and pieces, what truly sets TEAM apart is its core aim at helping artists get their music licensed via a multi-faceted education pathway structured to act as a complete journey. Specific categories of skill set training are set up with quality-assurance checkpoints all along the way. Unlike simplistic, impersonal online instruction sheets or checklists out there for a quick download, musicians in the TEAM Family not only get world-class training information needed for masterpiece-quality music creation and production skills, but they become part of a community-based support network.

For a limited time, TEAM is offering the first 20 registrants of the TEAM Essential Training program the added incentive of a limited-time 30-minute one-on-one consultation with Gary Gray by registering at this link.
