26 Jan Jammcard Mentors: A music mentor marketplace offering online mentorship sessions with music’s leading pros
A network of vetted music professionals comes with many benefits – like a centralized online platform where one can network, land gigs, and get paid. But the most valuable part is our supportive community of music pros, hard-working dream-chasers who’ve experienced the ups and downs of working in one of the most competitive industries, and are willing to share their experience.
When we thought about our own journeys in this industry, we realized how important it was for us to have someone to look up to, who can offer advice on which steps we should take (and which ones to avoid) to achieve our goals. But getting access to music professionals who’ve “made it” in the industry isn’t easy.
