Ready to launch your brilliant ideas, but unsure how to get started?

Not interested in the “traditional” musician career path, and ready to take the first step in a new direction?

Curious how to turn your passions into sustainable income and financial freedom?

Have you ever…
  • Had your career plans altered by Life or outside forces and asked yourself “what next”?
  • Felt you were meant for more, but something stopped you from taking the leap?
  • Been left head spinning on navigating today’s music industry and preparing for its future?
  • Wondered why “Classical Music is dying” and how you can be the solution?

The Solution

Music Career Revolution is an online course that not only teaches you how to create the music career you want, make money, and feel inspired in the process, but it also walks you through every step of taking ownership of your music career and moving it into the future with YOU at the center!

Go at your own pace! There are 8 topics with multiple sections, activities, and resources in each. You will have access to videos and digital downloads – including a weekly topic introduction, step-by-step guides, weekly challenges, and sample emails and documents. You can watch and play back as many times as you need.

No more Band-aids. Think Taylor Swift here: “Band-aids don’t fix bullet holes”… Many “solutions” available out there are nothing more than a Band-aid “fix” to a deeper, more complex problem that requires more dedicated attention. Revamping your business, recruiting students, and getting social-media savvy are all great skills, but they ignore the root cause of your career woes. They won’t bring you the holistic focus you deserve, and they won’t give you the total mindset shift you need to make lasting change!

Build a community. Join a growing group of like-minded musicians who are exactly where you are: tired of a one-size-fits-all system that leaves them uninspired, unfulfilled, and unpaid. And, who want more and are ready to take the first step. You will be added to a closed Facebook group for discussion, questions, and troubleshooting along your course journey.

Why MCR?

There is NO other course out there like this! Music Career Revolution offers a unique holistic approach that incorporates all the business and career skills you need, as well as an emphasis on balance and focus through wellness that recognizes the deep relationship between career and self. Through the MCR approach, you will explore this connection in all areas of life, identify how they influence your choices and actions, and begin building the foundation for a versatile, flexible, and enriching career centered on YOU.

Meet Your Coach

Hello! I’m Katherine Lewis and creating thriving, fulfilling music careers has been my passion for a long time.

When I was in the middle of enjoying life as a successful (by traditional standards), stable professional musician, Life threw me a curve ball. 6 years into an Army career, I was diagnosed with 2 chronic illnesses which ended in a early retirement from service.

My career (as I knew it) was over… What next?

I was at a crossroads I’d not been prepared for. They don’t tell you in college about this moment. So, I panicked (at first). I had no idea at the time that this was the beginning of everything.

After chance advice from a colleague, I began to reevaluate the narratives I’d accepted as truth… like “If I don’t perform with X institution, I’ve failed”; “Without X number of students, I’m not really a teacher”; and “I can’t do anything other than play my instrument, or I’m not a “real musician””. I soon discovered the biggest truth – I had the power to create my own music career!

Along my journey, through plenty of trial and error, I found the key to thriving in any new career adventure (it’s not what you think) and uncovered the formula for career/life balance.

Fast forward 9 months…

It worked. I was able to transition from “what next” to “this is it”. My studio was growing, I’d started a business, and for the first time I felt balanced. Sharing what I’d learned became my new mission. I wanted EVERY musician to feel as fulfilled, energized, and successful as I did.

Let me show you how to navigate the unexpected, take ownership of your future, and reinvent what it means to be ‘successful’ in music!
