Support Austin Music
The Austin Music Foundation’s role is to empower musicians and arm them with the knowledge and opportunities they need to not only survive but THRIVE in today’s music business climate. Music professionals are like any other small business owners. They must possess an entrepreneurial perspective and a willingness to self-represent, self-manage, self-market and self-promote as well as continually improve their musicianship.
