The Sessions provides the bridge between dreams and reality by Enriching artists' lives through Education, focusing on Empowering and sharpening their business skills in the pursuit of excellence.
The Sessions is a natural next step for Jules Follett, author/photographer of Sticks 'n' Skins, the world's premier photojournalistic essay on drummers and their unique world. While creating The Sessions, Jules kept hearing stories about artists who did not get their fair share of the financial rewards from some of the most successful recordings in which they were involved. Jules met with some of her top advisors, including Dom Famularo (The Drumming World's Global Ambassador), Liberty DeVitto (Drummer/Recording Artist), Joe Hibbs (Mapex Artist Relations/Product Development Manager), Carlos Guzman (Production Manager) and Paul Quin (Entertainment and Litigation Lawyer) to discuss how to educate artists about these issues.
This team has created a powerful and uplifting presentation where artists can sharpen their business skills in the pursuit of their respective careers. Participants at the inaugural event of The Sessions at the Musicians Institute in Los Angeles were presented with in-depth and personal experiences and guidance from the panel along with musical guest Russ Miller. Their questions were answered in areas including contract negotiations, entertainment law, marketing, self-promotion, image maintenance and performance fundamentals. The Sessions will be offered in cities throughout the United States with different accomplished guest panelists at each session. For additional information click EVENTS.
