We're thrilled to have internationally known educator, writer, speaker and performer Lance LaDuke giving our Music Business talk this year. Lance is one of the most innovative minds in music today and has expanded the boundaries of ways to have a successful and fulfilling career as a musician. The music business aspect of the retreat is one of the most important subjects that we focus on and take pride in and we're excited to have Lance be a huge part of it.
