Do you have questions that only someone in the music business can answer? Do you need to discuss problems that you may be having with your career but you don't have access to the right people? Then the SXSW Music Mentor Program is for you!

The program is designed to give direct access to industry professionals who have agreed to share their time and experience with others. Experts from all aspects of the music business will be on hand to provide you with valuable advice that you can use.

Receive personalized input by scheduling one-on-one meetings with the mentor of your choice. The SXSW Music Mentor Program will run for four days (Wednesday, March 16 - Saturday, March 19) of the 2016 SXSW Music Conference. Mentor announcements and online sign-up will begin in late February 2016.

If you have any questions about the mentor sessions, please feel free to email
