Are you an aspiring artist looking to get a jump start on your career, but don't know where to start? With tips and tricks provided by guest speaker, drummer, and consultant Jimmy Pemberton, you will leave with the motivation to kickstart your career and the proper steps to get you there.
 
Jimmy Pemberton spent his late teens and most of his twenties playing and teaching drums. He built a career that lead to endorsements from some of the top instrument manufacturers in the world such as Pearl Drums and Vater Drumsticks, as well as landing a magazine advertisement for Zildjian Cymbal Company. 
 
While making a living as a drummer, Jimmy became an expert on utilizing social media as well as how to develop a business. He used both skills to successfully create two revenue streams: one as a performer, the other as an educator. As others realized his success, he began to receive consultation offers within the music industry, from some of the most well-known musicians to instrument manufactures.
 
Today Jimmy still plays drums professionally, he transformed his solo teaching business to a startup named Lesson Squad, and consults for companies spanning many industries.
