Music Business professor, former record label executive and retired entertainment attorney Professor Butler, has counseled hundreds of students, clients, organizations and businesses on the intricacies of the music and entertainment industries.  As a result she has heard every complaint, every excuse and every story in the book as to why otherwise talented people can't get their careers off the ground without giving up everything they own.

What she discovered was that singers, songwriters, musicians, producers, and other creatives spend so much time focusing on and perfecting their craft that they overlook the business and legal aspects of their careers. What may seem like a minor detail in the beginning, can lead to financial ruin and years of emotional heartache.


Professor Butler understands your desire for fame and fortune, but wants you to know that selling your soul to the highest bidder is not your only option. You always have a choice.  But before you can make an informed decision, you need someone to educate and empower you on how to assert your power, protect yourself and your assets, challenge the status quo, and take some responsibility for your career. 


That's why you need Professor Butler.
