2016 AAM Manager Mentor Program - Applications Now Open


The AAM Manager Mentor Program returns in 2016, and we have some exciting news. This year we are partnering with Face the Music in Melbourne to deliver workshops and opportunities exclusively for the 2016 mentees.

The AAM Manager Mentor Program is now in its 4th year, the program matches emerging Australian managers with established and successful managers for a 12 month mentorship. The successful mentees will also be flown to Melbourne (from anywhere in Australia) for an introduction to their mentor, a full day structured management workshop, attend the The Age Music VIC Awards, and participate in the Face the Music conference and 3 nights accomodation in Melbourne.

The AAM is encouraging mid-level artist managers who meet the selection criteria, and are ready for the next step in their career, to apply. 

In previous years the program has boasted high profile Mentors, including Danny Rogers from Lunatic Entertainment (The Temper Trap, Chvrches, Laneway Festival), John Watson from Eleven Music (Birds of Tokyo, Cold Chisel, Silverchair, Gotye), Gregg Donovan from Wonderlick (Boy & Bear, Grinspoon, Airbourne, Josh Pyke), Claire Collins from Bossy Music (Art vs Science, D.D Dumbo, Kagu), Andrew Stone from Chugg Music (Shepperd, Megan Washington, The Griswolds, Deep Sea Arcade), Greg Carey from Umbrella Music (The Rubens, Elizabeth Rose, Urthboy, PVT), and Dan Medland from ie:music (Ladyhawke, Passenger, The Bamboos, Jack Ladder and the Dreamlanders).

Applicants need to be AAM members, but can join up at the time of applying if they are not yet members.

Applications close 13th October 2016.

Thanks to APRA AMCOS for making this program possible!
