From jazz and music industry workshops and panel discussions to semester-long, college-level courses, I bring more than three decades of record production, music industry, and professional jazz experience to the classroom.
Let's discuss how I can help you at your educational institution.
“At University of the Pacific, Nick demonstrated his impact in a variety of teaching settings: master classes in record production, mentoring individual students, and even helping design and teach our student-led record label operations class. In every instance, students learned a great deal of practical information derived from Nick’s decades of experience in the music business. He has a knack for presenting subtle concepts and techniques necessary to be a successful music producer in a way that students appreciate and understand.”
Former Director, University of the Pacific Music Management and Music Industry Studies Program
"Not everyone who has had valid professional success can impart the requisite wisdom to others. Nick delivers the goods in both personal achievement and teaching."

“My coaching sessions with Nick Phillips have been such a valuable investment in my career as a touring and recording musician (and label owner). Nick is extremely knowledgeable in all areas of the music business. He’s forward-thinking, creative, encouraging, and positive. I always leave each session with great ideas, a concrete plan, and feeling motivated and excited. I highly recommend his coaching and consulting services.”
Two-time Juno Award-winning recording artist, Owner Empress Music Group
"Nick brings years of invaluable music business experience and contacts to his clients. His grasp of the music business and the social media necessary for success are a great resource. I could not have had a successful launch of my latest recording without his help and I learned a lot under his guidance. Nick offers his advice to each artist individually so you can count on personalized advice for your career and project. Very highly recommended!"
Origin recording artist, Director of the Jazz Department at UC Berkeley
“Rarely do you find anyone as experienced as Nick from an in-the-trenches perspective to a bird’s eye view. Highly recommended for his experience, musicality, and work ethic—always served up with a bit of humor while staying laser focused.”
