It’s important to understand every detail about the loan programs you are choosing. Not all programs are as great as they seem. Please be sure to call me when looking to buy a new home so I can help educate you on the process.
Music grants are an amazing opportunity, especially for us Canadian creators who have access to them.
Most actually don't take advantage of these resources that are available to us. Some out of pure ignorance, but many because of the CONS on this list.
Writing grants, without the right understanding, structure and system can be incredibly challenging. It's like trying to find your way around with a blindfold and your shoes tied to one another.
But, by learning about how grants work and developing the right organizational system and approach, any grant can be yours.
This is an important skill as it can get you paid to do what you love every day - making music. It can also relieve the financial burden of having to pay for necessary things in your career, like studio time, video creation, marketing and promotion.
We've developed our own system to winning grant funding over the years. This system increases certainty around applications and securing funding while reducing the amount of time spent actually applying.
We'll be teaching an exclusive group of music creators like you this system and how to win grant funding at our GRANT WRITING WORKSHOP taking place in Toronto on November 9th.

This grant season is almost over - are you planning on submitting any grants? You better do it quick.
If you don't, this 2019 year of funding will be coming to a close and all focus will then be on applying in 2020.
Here are three programs that have upcoming deadlines. While it may be tight - you can still make the window to apply.
As you can tell, some of them are able to provide tens of thousands of dollars to your project if you're successful.
We're going in-depth and showing you how to apply for and win grant funding, like one of these grants that are up for grabs from FACTOR, Ontario Arts Council and more.

Following up on our grant rejection post from the other day - we wanted to show you the process of winning Staasia Daniels funding for one of her projects.
We kept striking out - literally by less than 1% every time. FACTOR would fund applications that scored 83% and above, we would be at 82.75%. It was gut-wrenching.
But recently, we turned that around. We learned from each application. We tightened our format. We picked songs that fit the criteria more and we ultimately won Staasia the $2,000 grant from FACTOR she so righteously deserved for her talents.
All the rejection made the nectars of this victory that much sweeter.
See - there's really two ways to handle rejection.
The first is to let it get to you. Where you feel emotional, but eventually grow numb and give in to the failure and ultimately never apply again.
Or you do what we do and that is make it motivate us. We take it head on and say "oh yeah? You don't think this was worth investing in? Watch this." And we go out and prove the naysayers wrong.
We'll be damned if we prove them right, thats for sure.
We're relentless. We never give up. We want to get funded so bad that we will take the short-term L in stride and viciously chase a W. Whether its now, or later.
Ideally - you don't get rejected. But thats not reality. If you get good at writing grants, you will still get rejected from time to time but you will start to win them more consistently and frequently. And from there, you build momentum, make bigger moves, and apply for bigger grants (like the six-figure ones).
If you want to learn our proven system that we use to apply for and win grant funding, attend our exclusive Grant Writing Workshop in Toronto on November 9th. Registration and more info via the link in our bio.
Rejection is a big part of the game when it comes to winning grants.
And this is a hard truth. Most people say they want things - but don't persevere when the going gets tough. When beginning the process of applying to grants, it will be tough.
Like most people, we were rejected in our first attempts. We still get rejected for grants now.
Its not because we suck. It's because grant organizations get a lot of applications, and they need to sift through who's serious and who isn't. They need to find out which projects are the most viable, the most credible and ultimately the most fundable.
They look at a bunch of things to decide this, including the plan (the application itself basically), and the support materials that validate what you're trying to do.
You can have the best plan, but if your song doesn't interest the jurors, you probably wont be funded.
Grant organizations do everything to reduce bias, with most allowing jurors to select the type of music they want to review. Organizations also have specific criteria that they make jurors look for when reviewing songs, which makes song selection extremely important.
We've ultimately created a formula for choosing "the perfect song" when applying to a grant application, which we'll be sharing in-person at our upcoming Grant Writing workshop.
If you want to learn more about this process, we're hosting the workshop in Toronto this November. More info and registration link is in our bio.

What does a successful grant applicant look like? 🤔
@5piece is a good example of one. He's won several grants, including this $2,000 Artist Development Grant from FACTOR. ✅
He used this funding to create multiple singles such as "Somethin' Outta Nothin'" (feat. @gudini3590 & @everythingoshaun) and "Don't Feel The Same" (feat. @romeyowilson@richkiddbeats@gudini3590) 🎼
5PiECE is not an artist. He is a producer and engineer. He is proof that you can win grant funding while being a non-artist with no past music releases (talk about a tough spot to be in...) 🥇
It's all about positioning yourself properly in the grant application and convincing the grant organization that you are worth investing in.🤹🏻♂️
Do you want to win FREE money from music grant organizations? Do you want to be another grant success story like @5piece? 💰
We're hosting a grant workshop in Toronto this November where we'll be teaching you exactly that. 📍
Learn how to apply for and win grants, and see what successful grant applications like this one looks like. 🧠
You'll leave with more clarity around the grant process overall, and more confidence in your own ability to apply for grants. We'll also show you our SYSTEM that we use while applying, making the whole process easier, faster and more efficient. 🏆
