Artists of all ages, genres and levels of ability have figured out the trick to being successful in the music industry - focus, commitment to their craft, and a support system of musicians and industry professionals. Project Vibe is here to help guide you through developing these tools, and your confidence as an artist through our intensive program. Led by Juno nominated artist, Sandro Dominelli, Project Vibe is a dynamic system of artist support and creation, intended to foster the unique needs and desires of the musician as they shape their sound, image, and future in music. 

We start our program by meeting with each individual musician, hearing their songs, listening to their aspirations, and developing a personalized plan including goals for the year and a strategy on how to achieve them. Once in our semester based program, our musicians will experience a full artistic support system including instrument specific lessons, collaboration with other musicians, monthly performance opportunities, and music industry coaching. Their experience can change each semester, so an artist can move from being a songwriter one semester into a rock band the next, or pursue an acoustic duo project after that.  Their creative experience is their own and our team is there to guide them through this process. 

What sorts of things will we work on in PROJECT VIBE?

- Create your sound.  Instrument specific coaching will shape your unique voice – be it your guitar tone, your drum sound, your vocal styling. This is where we identify what makes you different – and special.  

- Develop your style.  Once you have created your sound, we will help you with your stage performance style development.  How to speak to your audience, create your “look”, project your unique beliefs through your music, and build a platform for an audience to believe in you. 

- Get into the studio. Each week the artists in our program will have the opportunity to be recorded in Edmonton's first non-profit recording studio, and be produced by Juno Nominee, Sandro Dominelli. With lots of practice sessions and opportunity to spend time getting comfortable in the studio, you will gain invaluable experience recording your artistic growth each season. 

- Develop your brand. What is your band name? What colors, fonts, format, look are you going for in your marketing. Everything from creating a social media handle to your full promotional package and bio.  

- Perform, perform, and perform more. Being on stage, and gaining those experiences will shape your career, sound, and entire vision for your music. You will receive a minimum of one performance opportunity per month. The longer you are in our program, the more opportunities you will receive such as media exposure, performances at Edmonton Oil Kings games, and more.

What does it cost to become a member of Project Vibe?
