Initially I was skeptical, because I had been burnt before, but The Online Musician over-delivered in value – not to mention the amazing community and support system that comes with it.

This is my completed progress report for the featured opportunity. This has truly turned my world upside down and made my music business incredible. Thanks to Leah’s class, I now get a paycheck from my music EVERY WEEK. She provided the missing link that I needed. As someone who had been trying to make it in the new music industry, everyone used to not understand what I was trying to do. Thanks to Leah’s INVALUABLE tools, I now can fully explain and showcase my music. Being a fish in the (umbrella genre) pop industry ocean, it’s been so hard to define and find my micro-niche until Leah’s class. The research she teaches you to do and how to find certain answers is just incredible.
I’m so thankful my mom stumbled across her ad and sent it my way. It was nice to finally meet someone who UNDERSTOOD what I was trying to do and could push me further! I am eternally grateful and over-the-moon with my results. I went from 800+ LIKES on my Facebook to over 5,000 genuine LIKES! I’m starting to get sweet fan messages and grow my mailing list as well! I’m confident that my next release will be my most lucrative and successful and it’s ENTIRELY thanks to The Online Musician!
To anyone who is just thinking about taking this class needs to just DO IT. It’s worth every freaking penny of your investment. I am so happy!

I don’t feel as if we are starting from Ground Zero, but pretty close. One of our dearest members died–only 33! It’s taken us a year to recover, and in that time, we’ve been pretty absent from our fans. But I am hoping with our new album (This January!!!!!) and your great course, we can launch ourselves right this time.

Ty Richards | The Online Musician Student
Been working 2 fronts here for a while. Applying all I’m learning from TOM 2.0 to both my guitar teaching business and launching my demo ASAP. My teaching has taken off since I’ve been promoting and targeting my ads..and have not only doubled my student base but earned my “badge” from lessons.com and recognized as one of the best teacher’s in my state. Still pushing the stone and ready to start working my music more now that my business is blowing up. Thanks to everyone here at SMA!
Ryan Iavarone | Guitar Teacher
I have also been studying marketing and product launching and I found your photo in Sandi Krakowski’s ad! Haha! Thank you so much for all your work!
Vira Burmenko | T.O.M. 2.0 Student
Microniche is 90% there, just awaiting some feedback. Been through all 35 tracks and given them their energy rating & starting to get social up to speed. We’ve planned for an album launch on May 1st so just about to plan the actual campaign…BEFORE releasing it and starting to schedule in the possibility of a kickstarter campaign to help fund it! Next step – email list… 😉
So again, thank you! It would not have happened without your help.
James Eddy Edwards | T.O.M. 2.0 Student
I feel like I’ve got some bang for my buck, here. Nice course! I’m totally going to get on it. So much power! That’s really amazing. I’m excited to practice this! I might even watch the courses a few more times to get things into memory.
Z Rhett Akers | Savvy Musician Academy Student
This course has helped me better understand Facebook ads. The Facebook module is probably the most helpful to me. Before doing them, I had no idea how to use the tools. I tried doing an ad before I joined and it got me nowhere.

I knew that I wanted to do for course for so long, but I just didn’t know how to apply myself.. Now that I have a better idea of what’s going on, I can take the steps I need to make my dreams come true. Even if it’s already been a year since I joined, I have way more direction than I did before… I know now the process will go much faster every time I tackle a new project because I will be familiar with it. ❤
Stormie Bleu Haworth | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Course is well worth the money. I love getting money in the mail. She has a good solid program. Determination and hard work is required.
Stanley Adkins | Savvy Musician Academy Student
This is one of the great things about having this change in technology. Now, with using proven marketing strategies that are covered in the course, as artists, we have the potential access to a world market. Whereas before, as an unsigned, independent musician, you would be looking at a localized fanbase through live performance. With the internet and organized planning, it levels the playing field for modern unsigned recording artists. With using the techniques discussed in the Savvy Musician Academy course, it adds more direction to releasing recorded music, so it isn’t just leaving it up to luck that you find a buying audience and create a fanbase. Cheers! 🙂
Shayne Sheldon | Savvy Musician Academy Student
My biggest breakthrough is realizing, after not being active as a musician for 20 years, that the music is still very alive in my soul. Not dead yet! The course has so much info that I have needed to update to the new technologies. The music industry of 20 years ago is not the realities of today. Onward and upward!
Shayne Sheldon | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Leah shows her income statements in one of the first classes. She also does have the Facebook followers she says she has. You can go see her Facebook page anytime to see that she is doing the things she is teaching. The class is very well organized and thus saves a lot of time that you don’t spend piecing it together yourself. That said, it isn’t a miracle cure either. You will probably need to tweak things and make them your own… You don’t have to be a big megastar, you just need to find people who love your music…
Sharon Knight | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I really am in love with music. But I definitely need to reach more people with what I do. And I had to realize that I’m really bad at promoting myself. Partly, due to misguided modesty and also, because I just didn’t know how. That’s going to change. If you are also interested in learning about that particular topic, you should go check out Savvy Musician Academy, which is where I’m learning right now how to be a good online musician.
Ruhrkaft | Savvy Musician Academy Student
We absolutely adore Leah’s music and each one of us found out about her through different unique marketing strategies. I saw her band ads and wanted to see if they were worth anything.. Well, now Leah is one of my top favorite bands! I never would have heard of her if it wasn’t for her amazing online marketing presence and skills. How many people need to hear your music, and want to hear your music, but don’t know you exist? Leah can show you how.
Ricardo Enrique Arriola | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Wow Leah!!! I’ve learned so much already. I have so much work to do planning my road map!! But, it’s exciting now that I know how to plan. I need to meditate on my microniche, culture and brand. I see the importance of tying all those areas together. So glad I finally decided to join you in this amazing adventure.
Retha Bogard | Savvy Musician Academy Student
My band just started your course and it is truly transforming our minds. Thank you so much for creating this, you have given us so much hope and shown us how possible it really is. Our album is dropping in July as soon as we complete the course..!
Raymond Gwynn | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Leah, I just checked out the Facebook for Musician course for the first time. I’ve toured the US for several years and had a fan base. Now that I’m doing music myself as a solo composer and artist I have to say you speak truth logically. As much as the things you taught me so far may seem like “common sense”, it was truly an eye opener to have them laid out and explained the way you did. It is truly exciting and I invite anyone to take my word for it as TODAY I will be begin applying it to my FB page. Thank you in advance Leah as I know this will help me in an incredible way.
Ray Casarez | Savvy Musician Academy Student
There’s a lot of information to take in (which is fantastic) and I decided I would watch the whole thing twice to get my head around everything. I didn’t expect it to be so deep! The main take away of the course is the importance of the micro niche and the super importance of quality of quantity (regarding your fan base- Big fish in a smaller pond). This is really EVERYTHING to me and I adore this way of thinking. Quality over quantity is my motto and I was thrilled to see that you were on the same page. Other than that, I’m thrilled to see a comprehensive guide, almost A-B-C like, on how to put everything together. It’s so hard not to feel overwhelmed by all the platforms and different tools, but your course totally helped clearing and lighting the way.
Noam Cohen | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Pretty much every video in the course is of some use (the only ones that didn’t apply to me as an electronic producer are some in module 1 or 2, when you talk about recording in the studio with drums etc.). I started applying some of the rules about engaging posts and it’s opened up a lot of post engagement for me and I barely applied anything else. Slow and steady wins the race.
You need to have patience, persistence and practice with this. There’s no quick fixes in any business but this course, and Super Fan System, have been gold for me. When you buy the course, you need to have a clear vision of what you want to achieve and be prepared to do the work. You also need to go above and beyond the course. I have bought books, gone on other courses, read the external resources like copyblogger to get my skills and knowledge up. Yes it’s been frustrating and time consuming but it’s been worth every bit of time and energy. If it was easy, everyone would be doing it.
Nick Harrison | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I was skeptical about your program at first, but I felt led by my higher consciousness. After the webinar, I paid for the service and still felt unsure. It was the Facebook group that completely changed my mind. An open sounding board of 100’s of talented musicians and Leah’s staff working together to make the program work makes all the difference in the world. Thanks!
Nathon Dees | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I took the course. Totally worth every cent. 🙂 My biggest take away was building a community of superfans of people who like the same thing as us (not just music). It’s the same in social media as it was in the 90’s when I was touring.
Matt Couzens | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I’m having great success so far with the TOM course… I think I started training back in the summer of 2016 with your program, doing a like campaign at $5/day for quite a few months then had to drop it down to a trickle at $1/day which is what it’s at currently. I’ve just reached over 2000 likes which was one of my goals… I’ve been getting a lot of positive feedback and traffic from my videos!
Marcus McGowan | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I finally have a clue as to how to be a successful independent musician and actually make money from it! I’ve always worked so hard on the creative side and fell down on the business/marketing side. Leah has filled in the blanks for me and given me info that not even a $12,000 vocal course has given me. So thanks again Leah!
Letitia Rees-Harris | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Invest in SMA, Leah is the best at teaching how to market yoruself without the industry moguls!
Latwanna Rachell Afflick | Savvy Musician Academy Student
It’s hard work, but exciting. I used to think being a folk rock singer/songwriter was tough, because it is such a niche market. Now I think it’s GREAT, because it is such a niche market! I posted a live video yesterday from my lounge room and by this morning 2.7k views and over 80 comments, many from people who were not connected to my page. Yes, I have invested some money in advertising (all business must) but only about $70 a week. And a lot of new fans are now coming from people sharing my videos.
Karen Law | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Then I stumbled upon Leah’s ad for the course. At the moment, a year later, I still make very little sales, but if I look at what I gained so far since I started, I have a page with a lot of followers (over 7k) that comment and share my stuff, I’m building a mailing list and I have people sending me emails to thank me for the free music and how much they like it. I’m also releasing my second album in the fall and I feel like I finally have people to market it to, which I didn’t have last year.
Juien Valiquette | Savvy Musician Academy Student
This course as allowed me to overcome my own fears. I would put off posting my songs, but now I see how easy it is to reach an audience. I realized that the main reason I wasn’t advanceing my career as fast is because of me. I shared a song with my friends this week and I was floored by the genuine, insightful comments. I can do this after all!
Juan Carlos-MacKay | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I think the biggest wake up for me was when I realized how quickly I could build a fan base. Then I realized I hadn’t recorded much quality music and needed to have more material ready. But that’s a good thing. Knowing that my audience is waiting and looking for my music has motivated me to set aside more time to write and record.
Juan Carlos-MacKay | Savvy Musician Academy Student
As a former, aspiring musician, your course sounds amazing and I completely agree with your mindset, mentality, and philosophy that an artist is really a creative entrepreneur! I see too many artists struggling for cash and it turned me off track many years ago… You are adapting to structural change in modern society and are hustling on your own terms and not waiting around for the Sony music deal or whatever. So I support you, the struggle is too real when you don’t wake up to the reality that consistent income and financial wisdom is necessary to live a decent life.
Jess Santosa |
For anybody reading this, Leah is legit. She knows her stuff. Not only does she deliver on her modern day online musician material, she is a legit singer and beautiful to boot. She is the literal whole package. I’ve been doing this music biz thing for YEARS and I’m learning new valuable applicable things every day. It’s alot of money yes, but guess what? You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.
Jarrett D Binney | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I’m working through a couple of programs but I’m getting a ton of information from SMA. Leah is a very smart woman!
Jamie Kucinski | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I’m a record label owner, DJ, and producer and Ive already had some great accomplishments and Savvy Musician Academy gave me even more tools to succeed further. It takes hard work and dedication, but it’s compelety doable. 🙂
Francois Pierre | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I’ve gone through TOM once and I’m going back through it again. I’ve discovered my microniche as West Coast Christian HipHop and have done research of artists I’ve been told I sound like. I continue to build likes on my FB page as I plan to release new music. So far I’ve used TOM to find a microniche for the league (a Christian Battle Rap). The league started at the beginning of 2017, and I’ve used the principles to build our FB page up from 0 to 325 likes, start the Youtube and build up to 41 subscribers while dropping weekly content since March and book 3 more battles ready to drop throughout the summer. It’s a bit different but I thank y’all for the principles and I look forward to continuing to use them to build the league and to my build my own music brand as well.
Evan Tacholr | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I got to particpate in your free course ..and a free seminar. I learned how to post my music but more importantly, I learned how to create a culture based around my music by posting non music related things I feel fans would enjoy. I now know how to target my microniche.. because of you!
Erik Blak | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Excited to share that I just released a new album and made my costs just from the pre-orders in one month! I’m grateful for all the learning Leah has shared as I was able to use her guidance from the course. The CDs were delivered last night. It is stunning, thank you Leah!
Elika Mahony | Savvy Musician Academy Student
The Facebook targeting is a fantastic tool. And now that I’m finally pinning down my niche it has been so vaulable. I’ve also come to the realisation that my music has been attracting fans to me that I have loads in common with and I didn’t quite release it until Leah’s course. So I can now actively target those people and post about things that interest us both! My fans really are people i can have interesting conversations with about the interests we have in common.
Eleanore Duggan | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Leah, your course is fabulous. I’m not close to finishing but I have already learned so much. It is well worth the price… Its taking me a lot of time to get through as far as I have gotten, because I am taking the time to do the research and implement your strategy. I will finish, it might take me quite a while but everything I have learned so far has been right on the money. Thank you.
Elda Dellinger | Savvy Musician Academy Student
BIG THANKS to Leah and the SMA lessons. I have been doing her ‘Facebook for Musicians’ course and putting all into practice and my composer page is performing so well now!.. The craziest figure is 1,067% up on page views in just 7 days. Highly recommend! 🙂
Edward Harvey | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Leah does a lot of things really well. She is one of the BEST in changing mindsets! And it’s this that is required to do what she has done. Leah is a fearless professional and I’m particularly grateful to her and her innovation! It’s the experience I’ve had. You soften the hard shell that was an old belief system. I want to thank you so much for that!
David Delmar Coats | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I haven’t taken the course, but I have gone through Leah’s webinar and applied what I learned. For the first time ever, I made more money from streams then anything else I do. At least check out the webinar, it’s free!
Charles Edward |
I only really allowed myself, last year, to believe in my own original music at all. I’ve gone through many of the modules, but haven’t finished yet. I HAVE STILL SEEN RESULTS! Maybe small reuslts, equal to the work I’ve accomplished and the effort I’ve put in, but results nonetheless! It’s difficult becuase, if you really take this seriously and actually do all the work, steps, worksheets, planning sessions, and put it all into action, it’s a lot of work. But it’s work for what you heart yearns for- worth every penny! I’m grateful for the daily inspiration I get every time I put on a module. Little by little, at my pace, I can see the future. It’s not a mystery, it’s direct results of me taking these smart actions Leah has laid out for us! ♥
Caroline Gordon | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Very inspiring! I have been on labels for 10+ years, yet this is changing the way I think about my music, my identity and the business. I’m at the stage where I want to think and act different. I have a fanbase, but this made me realize I never put a lot of energy towards building strong culture and community. I think I need to work on that before I release my new album next fall.. Hard to believe I had never thought about some of this stuff before!!!
Carole Facal | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I’ve been running a Facebook ad set at $5 a day, featuring a lyric video. VIdeo views are up to over 4k and I’m around the 600 like mark for my page. It’s like a snowball rolling, just building more and more daily. I’m so grateful for Leah’s course. It’s still going to take time to get where I need to be but at least I’m gaining followers.
Cara Young | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Thank you so much for offering your work at the reduced price. I am really enjoying the content so far and you are such a refreshing stream, so inspiring! Thank you for being true! I have a lot of songs and have come to excitedly accept, at last, that I am a real musician, and I don’t need to be struggling to pay the bills for the rest of my life.
Brooke Topp | Savvy Musician Academy Student
This is awesome!.. I sometimes have to pause, as I am in Super Fan System now and my brain needs to adjust. I now have just PAID for the one on one coaching with Leah. Why? Because it is quite obvious this lady has the tools. I will humble myself, shut up, and sit at her feet so she can virtually speak and I can take notes! Go big or go Home! Now go make music!
Beverly Braumuller-Hawver | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I’ve been applying Leah’s methods to an EP I released 3 years ago that never went anywhere as preparation for my next album. Well someone just chose to pay 10 dollars for it!! First time after 20 years of doing music that I ever actually made money off of it!
Benjamin Wiegold | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I’ve been working on implementing Leah’s principles for about a year and a half, and I finally feel as if success might be near. We’re getting close to 2000 likes (when I started we had 300), our first album is in the final stages of mixing, album cover, and new logo will be designed this week.. It’s been tough, but we are slowly implementing everything and it’s working.
Benjamin Wiegold | Savvy Musician Academy Student
This makes me grateful to start my career now and not when I was younger because it would have crushed me not to own my music. And I don’t need to be groomed (which for women means sexualized & objectified) by some greedy label. They’re very condescending to think they can “shape” an artist. I would add one important thing though, that I only know thanks to Leah McHenry is that we also need to retain ownership of our email list and control of our marketing strategies.
Becca Wonka | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Our band has taken this course with the plan to one day quit our day jobs to pursue our music with fulltime passion and effort. One of us has already achieved this and added at least 40 hours per week to promoting, booking and writing for the band. This time next year the whole trio will be fulltime musicians and I couldn’t be more excited! This is due, in a large part, to taking the Savvy Musician Academy course and learning how to maximize our potential reach online and on land. The whole idea is to share our art with as many people as we can and if we can do it fulltime, we can make better quality material to put out there. Thank you Savvy Musician Academy!
Austin Haworth | Savvy Musician Academy Student
We took the course and are seeing massive strides upwards in our fanbase! Worth every penny. I can’t say it enough, thank you Savvy Musician!!!
Austin Haworth | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I have made my first sale! 🙂 I know I’m far from making a living of this yet, but it is working and it’s a journey. 🙂
Anna Brozozswka | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I took the free course and implemented several things for our band and it’s helping so much! Thanks for giving more of an idea of HOW to make it without a label these days, and how to be successful without having to give up on time for family and the other things in life.
Angela Lamb | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Thank you so much for the information. I found out what I was doing wrong! Being a stay at home mom, I didn’t know I had this many options. I thought I had to tour to make money. Now I even see options fo rmy solo career, producing it all myself. You’ve given me the basic tools, so I’ll see where this will get me!
Angel Nagelkerke | Stay At Home Mom
While using the system, I’ve developed a strong Facebook fanbase (about 4200 likes), converted some of them into email list members and sold 300 copies (so far) of my latest album. It’s more than paid for the course so I’m calling that a win!
Andy Watts | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Thank you Leah, I just finished the mini course..! I’m a touring musician with 6 CDs and I’ve seen so little money from music that made me wonder what I am doing wrong. Despite the fact that I’m with a label, which means they take a lot from the CD sales. I’m going to do this step by step. Looks really promising!
Andromachi Boulougari | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I’ve always wanted to return to my musical upbringing but I went the business route instead. So when I saw your webinar, it gave me a foundation to learn from, because I felt overwhelmed with how to go online, even though I knew instinctively this was the way to get started. Thank you so much and I look forward to getting started.!The class will actually satisfy my intellect and will give me the structure I need to make a business online from it. This class is exactly what I was looking for.
Alice Cablayan | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Have you tried what Leah teaches? Her mentoring is precious for musicians! It does work.. If Leah wasn’t here to teach musicians to do what we love, we would be lacking so many strategies that work.. Fans will buy what you do, I know from experience.
Alice April | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I tried expanding my fan base both with and without money and honestly without money brought more results toward making money. With the money it was pure spending with no apreciation. Why do you think so many people who have money end up broke and many people with no money or very little money end up making it? Hard work and dedication + useful advice from mentors like Leah who made it!
Alice April | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Until recently, I couldn’t see how I could earn a sufficient income locally… I thought I would have to sign with big corporate music company and work for them. It didn’t seem to be the route I wanted to go down. Last year I happen upon a course through Savvy musician academy where the owner and founder, Leah McHenry, showed how she was a stay at home mum of five children who was making an income online from music and merchandise and other revenue streams without touring. This was intriguing to me and has reignited my passion and given it direction. I am now learning what it takes to be an online musician who works from home so that I can support my young family and follow a long held dream.
Alex Talbot | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Leah. This is UNBELIEVABLY AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can’t put enough exclamation marks at the end of the that. You are UNBELIEVABLE. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!! This is THE BEST MONEY I have ever spent.
Alex Lindy | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I did the seminar and researched Leah’s music. She is legit and her music is good. Her logic is sound and her techniques for monetizing music products are spot on. All I can say is get your music ready and listen to Leah and try her ideas.What’s the worst thing that could happen? She gives you most of the strategies for free in the seminar if you buy the course there is almost no trial and errors. She tells you from experience what to do and what not to do. Sadly there are far too many neigh sayers who don’t realize how music or business really works.
AJ Dagger | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I’ve been in Leah’s program for over 4 months..It has a lot of knowledge of the new marketing and management techniques that all musicians should apply to thier own personal situation and circumstances. It will do you no good unless you have a really good talent in your music. Leah is a very organized thinker and has a great passion in her own music, but knows how to put details in order and nurture each thing as you go along step by step. I’m from a intense death metal backgroud…Leah’s program is well worth just the structure you will learn but she is a marketing expert and has special developed skills that you have to apply to your own situation if you have a great talent. I have not regretted for a moment signing up for the Savvy Musician Academy!
AJ Bates | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I was drawn to this by the fact it was someone who doesn’t tour but can still sell albums. I’ve learned a lot about niche and, particularly, about using Facebook effectively.
Norman Lamont | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Leah’s methods are awesome! She pulls down all the hard to find music biz tricks and info into one place, and walks you through everything step by step in a way that is easy to follow. She gets results!
Levi Riggs | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I feel pretty fortunate to have come across Leah’s courses. There’s a wealth of information in her courses and to be totally honest, most of the business principals she covers not only applies to the music business but to any business in general, regardless of the products or services.
Dylan Kiner | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Getting into SMA has been very helpful. Before this, I had no financial success, even though all the projects online had tunes that charted well. While I have intuitively seen & discovered some things on my own, Leah McHenry’s instruction has helped me identify several areas that I need to either get dialed in better, or really get things set up for real. If you haven’t already found financial success with your art, I recommend getting into these courses Cheers!
Brian David Vaughn | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I signed up to Savvy Musician Academy just over a year ago. I haven’t finished the TOM course yet, have one more module to go. I will be signing straight up for the advance course. Following her TOM course, we have had a very successful album launch, plus a very successful crowdfunding campaign. This wouldn’t have happened if it wasn’t for the information that Leah provided through the TOM course. We as musicians are entrepreneurs and need to have the same drive and attitude as successful entrepreneurs do. Leah’s courses help give us these tools to become successful. If you have quality music and have the drive and passion, this academy will help you achieve your goals. So just do it!
David Williams | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I was actually thinking about giving up on my music altogether until I came across Leah’s SMA! After the first webinar my mind was blown, because it opened my eyes to an opportunity I didn’t even know was there!! I came to realize after all of these years I pushed on my own, I had no real plan or strategies to help market my music the way it should be done. I was stuck in the old music industry ways.. Now that I’ve been doing TOM 2.0, I’m so excited and can’t wait to implement what I’ve been learning!! My ultimate goal is to quit my day job and be able to live off of my music and I know for a fact, without a shadow of a doubt, that I will be able to thanks to SMA!!
Alo Key | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I have been involved in the “traditional” music business for many years but Leah’s classes have opened my eyes to the way things are done NOW. I highly recommend it.
Jim Wilken | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I’ve been a recording and performing artist for 25 years now and have somehow avoided major success – due to the continuous mistakes I made and the false belief system that I had. Now – with the enormous help from LEAH – all these bitter bits start to fade and as I’m re-starting my music journey, I already have experienced the effect of these wonderful courses and passed the first major milestones towards the end goal – in very short time. Not overnight, but compared to the previous pace, it’s years worth of progress in a few months. These courses are GOLD!!!!!!! It’s systematic and if you put it into practice, it does work!!!! I can only recommend!!!!!
David Antal | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I’m so grateful I found Leah – she’s showed up right when I was about to give up on getting my music out to the world. I didn’t want to gig unless I had fans that wanted to hear me. Being able to find a teacher that speaks your language as a musician is critical! This isn’t a quick fix, but it’s the right fix if you’re a musician with a calling to be heard. Leah has the road map – it’s up to us walk the talk.
Deb Musgrave | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Leah’s programs WORK. If you already make high quality music, Leah will teach you how to do the rest. I’ve joined every program she offers and it has helped me greatly in the way of GETTING OVER my fears and putting myself out there… Absolutely worth your money if you can be dedicated, patient, and DO THE WORK!
Bethany H Spalding | Savvy Musician Academy Student
The classes offered by Savvy Musician Academy are full of great information that have helped me establish myself as a musician on Facebook! Applying what she says isn’t always going to be easy, and sometimes you’re going to need to figure out how her training applies to your specific case. But if you’ve got the guts to work it out, you’ll be in a much better place. I would recommend her courses to many others.
Elliot Miller | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I think Leah is amazing! She shows what can be accomplished and where musicians like me have gone wrong. Every time I listen to her, I learn something useful.
Steve Andrews | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Our engagement on our page has been awesome.. It’s so cool! Thanks to Savvy Musician Academy we are setting my wife’s brand up to make money and help other artists too along the way. We have talked to several PR companies and each of them thought we had good social media presence. Again, thanks to Leah!
Dustin & Dorothy Dauenhauer | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Besides being enrolled in your Online Musician Course (versions 1 and 2) and your Facebook for Musicians course, I also recently purchased AND APPLIED your new 10K7D course. It totally works!!! I started the new 10K7D campaign and ran it for 7 days with a $100 budget, hyper targeted the campaign for our micro-niche. We got over 10,000 likes! But the most amazing thing that happened- even though the campaign was over, we’ve had this momentum going, where we’ve gotten another couple thousands likes organically over the weekend! Thank you
Andrew Colyer | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Though I’ve been a professional musician for many years, I was in a real emotional rut about how to move forward when I came upon Leah’s stuff.. Savvy Musician Academy offers great support and informative products, and I appreciate the community that comes with it. Leah opened a door that led me to delving further into online marketing of my music and diversifying my income streams, both of which enabled me to make that final push toward doing music full-time (again). Thanks, SMA crew!
Lex Holland | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I’ve been working online for sometime now, but it was always for someone else in a completely different industry, one I wasn’t passionate about. Now, I build the music business instead. Thanks Leah.
Lee Morunga | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I am taking both The Online Musician and the Superfan System course and I am very proud of what I was able to accomplish within six months alone. I have taken several online courses not just for music but for business as well and Leah’s is the best! She cares and takes the time to walk you through the most important steps while encouraging you every step of the way. If you’re looking to get started in the music business, I’d take this course. Good luck!
Michelle Sarasin | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I personally loved the workshop. I’ve rewatched it multiple times and consider it eye opening. What Leah teaches about the new music industry seems revolutionary. I believe everything that she says about it. It can be disheartening when I try to wake up the fellow musicians in my life about how the new music industry works. Lots of people will never unlearn the old music industry mindset.
Erin Salvemini | Savvy Musician Academy Student
If you are a passionate musician or band – or if making a living as a musician has always been your dream – then look into Leah McHenry and The Savvy Musician Academy! If you know you have talent as a musician, then this is highly recommended. Why waste your life doing a job you weren’t meant to do and sacrificing your musical dream when people like Leah can help you? I’ve been following her teaching for about a year now and I’m more stoked than ever for what I can achieve with my music.Thanks Leah and all at SMA, keep up the good work!
Andy Beck | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Leah McHenry’s Savvy Musician Academy is a comprehensive model for serious musicians. Leah’s engaging videos walk you through the steps you need to take to build a strong foundation for a life in music.
Christophe Elie | Savvy Musician Academy Student
As a student of the program I can honestly say Leah knows her stuff. My project is new and growing more quickly and efficiently because of what I learned from the course. Money well spent!
Adam Ingram | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I’ve been making music since 1996. I was skeptical of your product, to be honest. I remain a skeptic of most any program like this in any field honestly. But in it lies the proof. Working maybe even better than you said it would. I am averaging about ½ a penny per like. 3 ½ days in and I’m almost at 7 thousand new likes. Theses are real people, because I am getting engagement and comments on posts as well! After I conclude this campaign in a few more days, I will move on to step two of your launchpad here, and I am going to really start to push sales and scale up. Thanks for the info! 🙂
Griffin Bonacci | 10K7D Student
This is truly an excellent product, and exactly what we need in the current marketing environment. Not only is this a concrete education in smart business, it is also a labour of love; the service that Leah and her team provide is to give you a practical methods of achieving success with what you are passionate about. As artists, we want to create (or reveal) beauty in the world around us. We want to connect with people and share joy through our work. The hurdles often come when we try to successfully share what we do: how exactly do we reach a receptive and supportive audience without compromising? How do we find the people who share our unique vision of beauty and who are willing to believe in our art? How indeed. It is precisely this need that is being skillfully met by the Savvy Musician Academy.
Ben Van Den Bosch | Savvy Musician Academy Student
WORTH. EVERY. PENNY.We LOVE this course! Leah is SUPER SHARP and it’s been a privilege for us to learn from her!
Dave & Tara Powers | Savvy Musician Academy Students
When I started the course I hadn’t made any income in online music and had around 80 followers. Leah helped me get creative on ways I can share my music with the world! I now make income with my royalty free background music (and avenue I never considered going down before) and build my audience with regular live online shows. My goal is to help as many people wiht my message as possible. Leah is making this possible. I also am outlining an album and budget to start selling my singer-songwriter work too. I know that Leah’s content is something I will return to again and again. Thank you Leah for such helpful resources!
Marisa Imon | Savvy Musician Academy Student
For you bottom-line people; just do it, you’re wasting time reading more.. Just go sign up. For those needing more details, eat your heart out..
**Who am I? – I majored in music performance and education but instead spent the first 10 years after college in corporate America as an analyst. I also have read all the leadership, self-help, and business books I could find. I’m not a big name musician for sure. In fact, I’m a baby musician: just started my journey again at the beginning of 2016. But wow am I grateful to have been introduced to this content NOW while I’m starting out.
**Is the investment worth it? – ABSOLUTELY and then some. Motivation, detailed instructions, comprehensive topics, resource lists, supportive community and staff.. All included. This isn’t’ fluff, it’s stuff you can apply immediately- even if you’re like me and starting from ground zero. It’s for the bigger fish too though! And actually you heavy weights out there have more to gain right away because all of your work can be built on right out of the gate.
**But are you making a living at it yet? – oh yeah I heard that from someone I was mentioning this program to. I believe the real question is can YOU make it? Only you know that. For me, “making a living” at it is a process that I’m just starting.. It’s like asking a 2nd grader if they’re making a doctor’s income yet- um NO. But what would you tell them to do, drop out of school? I will say this though, I feel like I hit a warp zone (old-school Mario!) instead of repeating elementary.. By the way, I think I’m applying about 2% of what I learned in college for at least 200% of the cost of this course. So, just do it, really.
Sarah Haag | Savvy Musician Academy Student
A long time ago, when I was young and full of hope, I believed that I could make a living doing music and the internet could help me, and I could still raise my daughter in a normal and stable way. In the years that followed, I made many naive mistakes and in my failures, I gave up and let music become a hobby. Fast forward 15 years, and I begin to love my music again and somehow magically our band successfully reunites…and… I still have the dream. It’s like, right there.. And here comes Leah in my field of vision. She knows exactly what she is doing and like our living universe, she is including all of us in her bounty of goodness. I am working through the course and garnering information from the group, and also seeing the real live results from those around me. All of this is giving me the hope and inspiration I need to work towards my goals every day. I have not reached the point where I am ready to put the real exciting stuff to work but I’m psyched to get there! Thank you Leah so much for being you, for being very honest and accessible, and for being a great messenger of hope and love for artists who struggle with many a thing!
Eileen Motok | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I’ve purchased three courses from Savvy Musician Academy- TOM, FB4M, and 10K7D. The first two are excelling, the last one is incredibly excellent! Leah goes into METICULOUS detail about.. Well, everything. If you’re a musician on Facebook, you need her courses, because I can almost guarantee you that you don’t know the intricacies of advertising on FB as well as Leah does. There’s still a lot for me to learn, and I’m glad Leah has put these courses out. Five stars, easily.
Jeff Pearce | Savvy Musician Academy Student
It is without a shadow of a doubt that TOM has changed my life forever. I am in debt to you, Leah, for your knowledge and wisdom. We have a plan now, and we are on the path to doing great things – because of YOU. I’ve recommended this program to many of my musician friends. Not one has said they were unsatisfied.
Ken Candelas | Savvy Musician Academy Student
SMA is extremely helpful and fun to work with. The information is in depth and insightful. It has certainly encouraged me as an artist.. and I am able to wade through a lot of bad information. I look forward to continued lessons.
Jamie Kucinski | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Leah is a clear, organized, skillful musicpreneur who has a proven method to expand your fan base. Make sure to check out her program and her music, both will give you a great actionable roadmap and an artistic inspiration.
Ali Selah | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Leah’s course, The Online Musician, is definitely EXTREMELY informative for any artist trying to make not only a name for themselves, but also a living. Very helpful marketing strategies for musicians and entrepreneurs that most people don’t teach at all. Cheers to this course. Seriously!
Glen Purdy | Savvy Musician Academy Student
This class has much to offer the novice as well as the long time musician. I think a lot of us have done things the way Leah did before… that is throwing our music up all over and crossing our fingers and then being disappointed when nothing came out of it. This course will show you what you need to do to get where you want. It takes work and effort though. It is no easy get there quick scheme. It is a step by step guide to getting yourself into a position to actually have some tangible results. As in anything you do in life, there are setbacks and difficult spots but if you follow through and lean on the other students for support and affirmation you will see that it will begin to work itself out the more you put into it. Like the tag lines in the initial pitch for the class, only 2% will actually do the work required. There IS reading, research and trial and error. There is no quick formula but what the teacher has done is lay out a blueprint that you can use to suit your needs and your genre. I keep going back and rewatching different modules as I progress and fine tune what I am doing. I give this course 5 stars and thens some because it opened my eyes to what COULD and WOULD be if I put in the effort.
Thad Foster | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I just finished module 4 of Tom 2.0 and I’m SO jacked about the YouTube tricks and tips as well as ultimately looking forward to the Facebook ads tips. As I said before, I’ve been doing this a while and (as a typical procrastinating musician) I never felt like I had direction or focus. Ultimately I feel this is what the program offers. Direction, focus, and a plan for people like me and many musicians. We have all of the creativity in the world but a lack of organization and direction most of the time. LoL. I think Leah is awesome and I plan on combining my own idea with her direction and being one of her biggest success stories. Leah is THE BOMB! 😊
Jarrett D Binney | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I recommend the Savvy Musician Academy as much as possible I am so impressed with how well rounded and transparent this program is. After trying a couple others programs somewhat similar to the SMA, this program is, hands down the best one. It’s practical stuff that really works.
Kevin Carbonneau | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I think this course is brilliant. It will help me to fulfill a lifelong dream of making a living from my music. I am so grateful to Leah and the team at Savvy Musician Academy for creating and facilitating this course. If you want to make a living from your music, this is the only course to do in the new music industry. Hope to see you on the inside. Keep on rocking. 🙂
Alex Talbot | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I knew that marketing was the key, but honestly I was intimidated by social media marketing. I purchased SMA’s Facebook for Musicians training, and I must say, that I was absolutely inspired after taking this training. Everything was very thorough, yet simple enough to be implemented immediately into my Facebook marketing strategy. Growth is slowly happening, and because of the understanding gained from this training, it will happen more abundantly now. I can only imagine what the future is going to hold. This was great training from Savvy Musician Academy. Upward and onward….Thanks!
Vincent Charleston | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Thank you for the encouragement..! I’m honored for the opportunity to be featured and continue to make it my goal to complete, learn, and implement everything in your course. Finding the niche is challenging but through every class, every word, and every assignment, it brings me closer to seeing a strategy; but mostly seeing myself more clear. This is bringing me more confidence which ultimately is more appealing for the fans and followers. Thanks for doing what you do!
Nicole Sweet | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Just wanna say thanks to Leah for putting this program together. It has been EXTREMELY beneficial to me as a music professional. I’m in the Online Musician 2.0 as well as the 10k course. It has been worth making the time to study the videos and materials so that my msuic efforts can be presented as a real business, and not just as a nice hobby. Thanks Savvy Musician Academy!
Rodney M Edge Sr | Savvy Musician Academy Student
The way I look at the TOM program is that I had all these different sections of the puzzle sitting on the table, and Leah has put together this course that has finally showed me the picture on the box that helps me start putting the puzzle pieces together in the right way to be more successful than I would be trying to do this on my own. She is doing this by giving me info, skills, and walking me through the process.
Jim Smead | Savvy Musician Academy Student
TOM has given myself and many others hope again to make some waves in online music. The customer service is of a high standard and I have learnt a lot from TOM as well as the group’s Facebook page. Thank you Leah!
Paul J Rogers | Savvy Musician Academy Student
What I have learned from Leah is awesome. Nobody does it like she does. I love her natural approach. She’s like a great friend and I continue on because she has a way of making me WANT to keep trying and doing the techniques she teaches. The real deal and I love it!
Josie James | Savvy Musician Academy Student
If you are willing to put in the work, this course is perfect for you. Leah’s tips and tricks have quadrupled my growth in my music business and I would be nowhere near where I am without the Savvy Musician Academy. Take this class! Do the work! Don’t get lazy and take shortcuts. Pay attention and be ok with making mistakes. The more you experiment and test these actions, the more likely you will build success and become a dominating figure in your microniche.
Jonathan Miller | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Great information. By entering this program, you are getting a road map to your hopes and dreams as a musician; and obtaining the confidence to believe that it is possible for you!
Martin Goodwein | Savvy Musician Academy Student
The team here is extraordinary in their care and support! I have not found a support system anywhere else that lays out a blueprint with proven principles that brings success no matter your genre of music! The principles that Leah shares transcends any culture of music! She is teaching entrepreneurship for the modern musician in this day and age of the free market. It doesn’t matter if you Rap, do Country, R&B or Rock, whatever your genre of music is if you apply the principles that are in this precious system provided at SMA you will see success and get results!
Mike Oteka | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I’m strategically planning with highly targeted markets in a way that I never could have imagined. The industry we have known for so long is evolving and will never be the same thanks to courses like this and musicians such as Leah. I now have a total different approach to marketing, sales and fan engagement!
Ian Blake | Savvy Musician Academy Student
This course has been a lifesaver. I never would have been able to to do this on my own. Thank you Leah!
Amy Carlin Lee | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Love Leah’s style and approach to the new music industry. As someone who was touring fulltime and penniless during the old music industry, her material is very refreshing and practical for musicians of all shapes and sizes.
Carmen Carangi | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Cool people, great customer service, and great products!
Chris Martins | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I was at a point in life where I had accepted that my music would never be heard, that’s when I discovered this program. After a little over a year, I now have 2000 FB likes and I’ve sold a few copies of my old EP. Every excited to release my first album at the end of the year.
Benjamin Wiegold | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Enthusiastic and vibrant is what I say about Leah, her program, and her team. I’m glad for this re-boot for my own songs and singing, and it IS encouraging to get some social proof happening… It can happen that way for you, too. It’s a resulting reward for the correct effort put out.
Coral Reef | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I am one of the original students and never been more excited about this recording business then after I enrolled here. There was a point I was beginning to think it would never happen for me, that I would be stuck in dream land for life.. Then Leah came out of nowhere and gave me the blueprint I’ve been looking for!
Payton Cross Jr | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I joined SMA a few months back, and only now getting started.. I listened to one of Leah’s webinars yesterday, and was blown away by the clarity she displays. In an instant I had discovered genre through to microniche. I have other musician friends who I will definitely be recommending SMA and TOM to. It is heartwarming to discover the new way of succeeding. Thank you Leah!
Melody Rawson | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Leah has given me some brilliant news on her course 10,000 page likes in 7 days. Leah’s advice has been invaluable. I would not have been able to do this without her. She really knows what she is talking about as she has lived through the mistakes, trials, and errors to give us this knowledge. It is just wonderful that I have met her online and that she is helping us to follow our dreams. Thank you, Leah, you rock !!
Kim Andrews | Savvy Musician Academy Student
This course has enabled me to see the LIGHT at the end of the tunnel and sometimes this can be hard for all musicians. Without this course I’d be lost! Thanks to Leah and all of her team!
Ali Ratcliff | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Leah, this course is a game changer! Thank you so much, I never thought my music would become a source of income, but it is starting to generate!
Danny Rosario | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Leah’s training really does work! In fact, she gives so much useful information that I had difficulty remembering everything and then applying it. I went from having nothing to over 1300 Facebook followers, and 60 e-mail subscribers in just a few months, and those numbers are continuing to grow. The old approach of trying to get the attention of a label only resulted in my becoming bitter and discouraged. If you are a struggling or discouraged musician, then I highly recommend all of Leah’s courses.
Eric Burnham | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Leah and her programs have been FANTASTIC!!! Very doable and attainable strategies that put you in the driver’s seat of your music business. There are a lot of great things to do and Leah & Staff are so supportive and inspirational along the way. I am glad to be apart of the LEAH Movement…!
Lou Fossessca | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I’ve learned a LOT from the TOM 2.0 course and more recently, we used Leah’s secret sauce in getting loads of “likes” on our facebook page in just a week.. It works! We are even using some of Leah’s ideas to help a friend who is self-publishing a book. Lots of parallels, especially in the way to use social media. Thanks Leah, we really appreciate your interest and help.
Tom Potts | Savvy Musician Academy Student
LEAH KNOWS WHAT WORKS!! It’s not about the likes, it’s about my growth and grounding of the vision I’ve held for 25 years. If you want to be global, you have to grow globally – and now I am thanks to Leah’s Savvy Musician Academy. What I’ve learned through Leah and her videos is HOW to bring all the pieces together.. Building community on my page now feels like a ‘duh, why didn’t I do this before?” idea but I wasn’t really doing it consciously. Now I have a plan, a strategy and a mentor in Leah who’s been there, is still here, and is doing it along with us. I can’t recommend Savvy Musician Acadmey enough for all independent musicians around the world!
Amy Camie | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Savvy Musician Academy is a streamlined school for learning everything you need to know about marketing your music online. As a non-touring artist, this education has been absolutely KEY for me, and I can see it’s teachings working for me already, in only 3 weeks.
Nathan Johnson | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Firstly- thanks so much for sharing all of this with those of us who have the desire to share our music “with those who need to hear it” but don’t know how to do that in the most effective way. That’s totally where I’m at – I’m also happy to admit that I’ve been pretty clueless when it comes to seeing the importance of culture/microniche etc. I feel really excited to start working on this and doing some real research and well thought out branding, etc. I’m on the verge of releasing my first EP, but I feel like I need to take a few steps back and really work on the “foundations” – so thanks again for giving me some practical steps and challenging me to be more intentional, rather than just hoping things will work out. This is really awesome stuff. Thank you!
Sophie Head | Savvy Musician Academy Student
The only way that my music was selling was by way of people buying them at my busking events. I knew that if I was to leave any kind of music legacy (on my bucket list) I needed a different way of spreading my music across the world. I also knew that at 73 years old, time was of the essence. Somehow, Leah popped up. I listened to her introduction to the TOM course and was blowed over by her deep understanding of the current market & marketing tools for musicians. I found every lesson of TOM enabling and inspiring. Leah shares some fantastic expert, technical knowledge, in a lucid and understandable way. I am learning how to feed good posts and build a community around my page so that when I am ready to relaunch my music, I will HAVE an audience that will produce a successful outcome. So thank you Leah!
Dave Dodsworth | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Very Informative, I learned a lot about how the music industry has changed and how I need to change with it.
Deon McClendon | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I am an older musician, well established in the old music industry but retraining for the new economy. I have already seen good results from the SMA Facebook training and am enjoying learning about and connecting the new tools of digital music marketing.
Chuck Hughes | Savvy Musician Academy Student
SMA is amazing! I am almost to 10,000 likes and followers on my Facebook band page as a result of the courses offered by them. I have learned how simple it can be to be successful as a musician, you just got to know how to advertise and utilize the resources you have, and SMA teaches that very well!
Andrew Hopper | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Learning what Leah teaches is how you MAKE IT as an independent musician. Making money, on your own time and writing your music the way you see fit. Leah teaches us how to prosper in the new music industry… and does a phenomenal job at it. Highly recommend this page and all the courses.
Colin Caetano | Savvy Musician Academy Student
I started the course and it’s legit! Worth every penny.
Matt Mayer | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Wise words for any DIY songwriters looking to make a living, well worth your attention.
Ger Walsh | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Learning a wealth of knowledge from Leah and her Savvy Musician Academy – a worthwhile investment for any quality musician desiring to reach their superfans online! Love it! 🙂
Dani Elise | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Hello Leah & team! I have been using your program’s advice on how to grow my Facebook page. I’ve made a potential viral video that did very well. Since then, I’ve been being consistent with unique posts and getting fans involved in them. I went from 600 likes to 1131 and counting. Using only one $5 like ad on my page, which is helping too. Hopefully, if I keep this up, next year I will bringing in a lot of new fans.. Thank you!
Jerel Tatum | Savvy Musician Academy Student
An eye-opener! It’s no quickfix course! Leah is giving you the right tools but it’s up to you if you want it to work. I highly recommend the course!
Oskar Frantzen | Savvy Musician Academy Student
Leah knows her stuff! As someone who has been on two labels in the past and have been at this for a long time, having someone willing to teach marketing in this online era is a wish come true. Her methods work!
