Meet Matt and Dan
Our founders, Matt and Dan, created SMB: The School of Music Business in 2016, after a combined 26 years of working in the industry.
They recognised that music business education in the UK was outdated, expensive and uninspiring, and set out to make a difference - focusing on the most exciting and important areas of the music industry, and offering the most in-depth and affordable courses available.
There has never been a more exciting time to work in the music industry!
Thanks to the increasing success of streaming, the global reach of social media, innovative brand partnerships and more, revenues in the music industry are high and are continuing to rise.
