Description

The AMPED program is a collaborative project initiative between Graham “Buzz” Bidstrup of The Music Buzz and Nichola Burton of The Pushworth Group to provide facilitation, mentorship, leadership and business services for Artists and Suppliers working in the Australian Music Industry. Our vision is for Music to find its place in the Real World with the ability to compete in real time commercial markets by crafting sustainable operating platforms for long term growth and development. The music and entertainment industry we find ourselves in today in 2016 is a vastly different beast than the one we saw in 1976 and many changes have occurred in the intervening years. Our mission is to facilitate Artist and Business development with practical strategies for the current business model by working with each Artist to create their own unique structure and system that will support their ultimate career vision.
