Creator Education is a robust, online education video series that teaches aspiring creators the key entrepreneurship skills and strategies needed to live their passion in the digital age. Hollens’ knowledge of the digital entertainment industry, combined with a passion for his art, have allowed the academy to develop a meaningful and unique video course structure with the ability to teach musicians and creators how to make a living doing what they love. It prepares artists to begin pursuing their professional goals, create a personal brand, and build an online community while creating their art.
Not only does the Creator Ed provide an environment for students to learn from meticulously crafted video tutorials developed by leading digital media experts, it allows them to network with a community of musicians and creators to grow their skills. As students make their way through the video courses they are encouraged to collaborate with one another using the platform’s social media tools; fostering an enduring sense of community that motivates them to push through to the next step on their journey.
