The music industry is this huge, and very wide set of different vertical spaces. These consist of performers, composers, freelance musicians, music educators, and folks in production. But all of these various entities are all one thing, and that's all part of the music business. Even if you’re an employee, you’re still directly involved.

The 2nd annual Ultimate Music Business Summit is an event that covers such things as your mindset, earning money, networking, and building opportunities. The speakers at this conference will also be covering such aspects as building a website, how to make YouTube work for you, audio production, studio building, along with how to get your creative project off the ground.

The guests on the show, Heidi Kay Begay, Arthur Breur, and Garrett Hope provide us insight into what to expect at the upcoming Ultimate Music Business Summit conference.

The event will take place over 3 days, starting January 6th 2022 and run through the 8th, with two sessions running at a time over a six to eight hour period, followed up with Q and A chat rooms.

Dr. Heidi Kay Begay is a self-employed flutist, educator, podcaster, and non-profit organizer. Heidi is the creator and host of the Flute 360 podcast, which delivers educational content (to the modern-day flutist) through various platforms.

Arthur Breur composes personalized, melodic music for live performance, for everything from solo instrument or voice, to full orchestra, concert band, and other large ensembles.

Arthur is the Composer in Residence for the Tualatin Valley Symphony and the Tualatin Valley Community Band, and uses his role not just for his own music, but to promote the creation and performance of new music by other composers.

Over the more than 35 years he has been composing, he has written more than 150 individual pieces, including works for five weddings, two musicals, bar and bat mitzvahs, and numerous video and film productions.

In addition to composing, he owns and runs a web development company that he founded in 2001 and has published the novels of three authors.

Dr. Garrett Hope’s purpose is to use his God-given creativity and communication skills to entertain and enlighten, draw people together for a common cause, and to coach others to see new opportunities.

An award-winning composer of film and concert music, Garrett engages with performers and audiences to tell stories and create life-changing experiences. He loves working with educational ensembles, and especially values his work with students.

As a coach and public speaker, Garrett empowers people to see new opportunities and take courageous action. He does this by helping them identify and break through the beliefs that they hold about themselves that are preventing them from achieving their potential. He helps creatives build networks and make strategic business decisions so they can make a living doing what they love.
