Meet The Tutor | Matt Errington
Hi, I'm Matt, the Artist Management tutor at SMB: The School of Music Business.
I began my career as a music journalist, working at national publications such as Time Out, Dazed and Confused and Spin magazine. I later became a successful music business entrepreneur, music marketer and artist manager, running campaigns for a host of successful bands that saw me work alongside the likes of photographer Rankin, sign major international publishing and recording contracts, lead headline tours of the UK, Europe, America and much more. Today I continue to lead campaigns that have secured millions of Spotify plays, international playlist support and streaming chart entries. In 2015, I won the Music Export For Growth award from The BPI and UK Trade and Industry, for my work developing UK artists overseas.
In 2018 I was appointed Expert Board Member for Jump: The European Music Market Accelerator, co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union, to help develop innovative new business models within the industry. From now until 2023, we will be supporting some of the most innovative music businesses in the world. You can also find me talking regularly at industry events, including SXSW, Liverpool Sound City, Line 6 What's Next Conferences, MIL - Lisbon International Music Network and many others. I love passing on my knowledge and experience to help artists and new music business professionals find their feet in the business.

"Matt seems to make time out of nowhere since when I look back I can't figure out how we took this little time to learn that much content. The reason why I'm writing this review though, is because I just got a new job in the music industry and my new employer specifically told me that it was due to the course. To top it all up, Matt is super kind and still keeps in close contact to promptly help me with any doubts I may have."

"What an amazing Artist Management online course and what an amazing tutor! This course was very interactive and beneficial on so many levels... other than the great material provided by Matt, he gave us all his time to explain to us all the modules in detail. You will not be able to find such a course with great material and a great tutor - trust me I’ve been researching for a while to find something close to this but none is comparable. Register, register and register because it’s going to be worth it!"
