  • You want to go from part-time to full-time artist but lack the support.

// THE TYPICAL DRUMMER SOCIAL MEDIA PROBLEM

Most drummers start out with very little awareness and a lot of confidence! They begin by uploading drum covers or repurposing content, but quickly find out these things don’t do much to grow their audience, engage their subscribers, or increase income. They get discouraged, lose confidence and often times stop posting altogether.

COLLISION BACKSTAGE was created to help you learn the HOW. You just need to follow the step by step strategy we lay out for you over the FRAMEWORK. 

You also get the community support to help you grow. With it becoming harder than ever to make it within the music industry through traditional routes.

Increasingly, artists are breaking away, independently writing, recording and distributing their music.

We are helping individual drummers to level up their position within the industry through branding, social media, and live coaching. We wanted to give you a backstage pass.

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE MEMBERSHIP

What is COLLISION BACKSTAGE?

COLLISION BACKSTAGE is the place where you can thrive and develop your understanding as a drummer. You’ll get access to knowledge and support from a wide variety of industry experts. You also get access to the private BACKSTAGE community to connect and collaborate with like-minded, passionate, motivated drummers.

We are here to support you. We know what it’s like to be the only drummer in the room. Most of the time we’re the ones that are practically backstage, off-camera, and out of sight. It could be quite lonely as a drummer trying to figure it out all on your own.

We built this platform to showcase and celebrate the drummer.

GET YOUR BACKSTAGE PASS

// THE COLLISION FORMULA

This is not a framework that will make you an overnight success as an Instagram drummer or influencer with 1 million followers. However, if you implement the strategies we share in the COLLISION BACKSTAGE FRAMEWORK, you CAN grow your community, build your authority and credibility as a drummer, and begin producing leads and audiences that will help you to monetize as a musician online.

Why can we say that?

Because we have done it ourselves, and have helped others do the same.

COLLISION DRUMSTICKS has over 65,000+ followers and Carlton used this exact formula to generate multiple 6 figure sales over the past several years, all whilst creating community and positively impacting drummers globally.

Whether you’re just starting out, or a seasoned social media guru, COLLISION BACKSTAGE is specially designed to help you speed up the learning curve by walking you through all the elements step by step.

If you’ve ever been frustrated by being on the follower rollercoaster, lack of monetization opportunities as drummers, obscene Facebook ad spend, lack of community, or feeling like you’re going at it alone… This is the program you’ve been looking for.

Instead of just randomly posting content, learn to create value driven content that makes your ideal fans and audience come to you.

BY THE DRUMMER FOR THE DRUMMER

// A MESSAGE FROM THE CEO

When I first started my drumming journey, I wanted to join a community where I was mentored and supported in growing my online social media presence, positively influence my fans and audience, and build my personal brand as a musician. After searching for online resources, programs and coaches, I realised that there were little to no options for us as drummers to get support in growing our online presence.

Trying to navigate the online space as a drummer can be lonely. That is why I decided to launch COLLISION BACKSTAGE, a community based membership program built for drummers looking to level up and grow their social media presence, create engaging content and take their music to the next level online. 

This isn’t another online drum lesson – you already know how to play. COLLISION BACKSTAGE focuses on the business of your music and you as the drummer.

Drummers – this is our time. Join us BACKSTAGE.
