ProMusicDB Digital Musician Academy
As a vehicle to further empower the professional music community in the digital world, Christy Crowl established the ProMusicDB Digital Musician Academy earlier in 2016, as a compliment to ProMusicDB: The Professional Music Credits Database. The DMA is focused on teaching musicians how to create new passive income streams for themselves in the area of e-learning, by fostering and encouraging musicians towards the creation of their own online courses based on their individual musical experience and expertise.
The e-learning industry has grown by almost 40% each year over the past three years, and is predicted to reach well over $107 Billion Dollars in 2016. Online courses are becoming the norm in education and creating them are a natural fit for a musician or creative who is looking to teach to a larger market online and create passive income for themselves.
