But we'll be back soon!
Sign up below to receive an email when we are... and when you do, you'll get an exclusive invitation and special offer to the newly revised program.
While we retool the program, we know many of you are interested in receiving guided mentorship... especially in these times.

Happy music making.
And stay safe out there.

MEET YOUR INSTRUCTOR
is practicing digital brand strategist, musician and the Founder of ArtistPro—a program for music creators that combines education with an action-oriented approach to career development. After years working with some of music's biggest names, he has now shifted his focus toward the emerging artist community.
ArtistPro was developed to equip emerging artists with not only the tools needed to thrive in today’s music industry, but also to provide impactful and proven refinement to their overall vision as a creative individual. During his time as an educator, he realized just how little time was spent on developing range—diversifying skills in key areas beyond music that actually gets artists ahead in today’s crowded marketplace—and how so many educational programs continually sacrifice quality for quantity. He felt compelled to change the game.
ArtistPro is an online curriculum designed to place the musician in the role of Founder of their company, which allows them to deep dive into the roots of their creative business. It is designed to clarify and unify a creative vision with their professional ambitions, and then employ the skills needed to get it out in the world. The program exists within a growing community of ArtistPro alumni, consisting of career-driven and like-minded individuals around the world from a diverse range of musical styles, scenes and communities.
Hisham believes in being the architect of your own creative life and career, and ArtistPro is here to help guide those that are committed, dedicated and career-driven.
