Signature Coaching Program

The Singing Entrepreneur

A program designed for singers who want to learn the entrepreneurship and business skills they need to go from being an unsatisfied, struggling artist to being a courageous business owner who knows how generate income consistently with their music and music related offerings.

I created The SE Academy because I know that you have something important to say with your music, and yet... 

You are burned out and over worked trying to juggle growing your music business and your day job (J.O.B, muggle job, restaurant work etc)


You doubt yourself because you believe that you aren't good enough to be a full-time pro musician 


You doubt that you can make enough money on music work alone, and you worry about financial security and stability


You feel discouraged and disheartened because you are constantly comparing yourself to other singers and musicians


You are confused about how to make it happen for yourself and don't know where to begin 


Or perhaps your dreams feel way too big and therefore impossible to accomplish


Could be that your beautiful creative brain has a hard time focusing and working systemically towards goals and completing tasks 


And all of these beliefs, habits and obstacles are keeping you from sharing your gift with the world, making an impact on people's lives and leading the professional and personal life that you desire. 

I have an intimate knowledge of all of these fears and limitations because that was me five years ago.

I was a public school elementary music teacher who wanted a performing career and had no idea how to make it happen...

Not to mention...

I was burdened by perfectionism 

I was overwhelmed and engaging in self-sabotaging behavior 


I gave all my time and energy away to help other people carry out their dreams and left no time for my own 


I had no idea how to make money as a musician let alone make my entire living off of music work 


I also know how it feels to have the freedom and confidence to express myself creatively. 

I know how to cultivate the confidence I need to take creative and financial risks 


I have the business knowledge I need to fully support myself with my work as a musician


I feel balanced, satisfied and effective in my work as a musician 

I understand how to create offers that will serve people deeply and make an impact while also generating income for my business


I won’t lie and say that I created a quick fix to get myself where I am today, but I am still in awe sometimes at the life I live now. I am continuously creating a music business that helps me live my dream life. I think back to the frazzled, depleted elementary music teacher I was three years ago and I feel SO EXCITED for her because she doesn’t even realize what kind of greatness she is going to create, and soon!

And the truth is that if I can do it,

So Can You.

Over my decade-long career as a music educator and for the past two years as a music business coach I have helped hundreds of performers learn how to happily and enthusiastically share their gifts with the world. I know that you, too, have a very special gift that, when expressed to its full potential, will light you up, and in turn light up the world around you. 

 "If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you."

- Gospel of St. Thomas

I know that it actually feels painful to suppress the creative drive that is buzzing inside of you.


That pain may manifest as physical sensations, emotional tension or mental pressure.


I've found that the only way forward is to set down the self doubt, perfectionism, and confusion ...


And create a music business that will allow you to express yourself creatively, serve the people you want to help, and generate the income you need to live the life you truly want.

It’s time for you to name and claim your skills and gifts as a singer as integral contributions to humankind that deserves living wage compensation, and create and share from that posture with ease and generosity. 

BUT you can only do this when you feel supported, secure and confident. 


That is where I come in! 

I’m Bailey Barnes and I have created a comprehensive program to help singers create their own version of a successful music career  

The Singing Entrepreneur

Using my expertise in artistic development, business development and mindfulness I will take you through a series of weekly sessions where you will learn how to: 


Clarify your vision for your career

Understand what is getting in your way and how to move forward 

Identify who you want to serve, how you want to serve them and learn how to monetize those services

Set up systems, containers and plans that legitimize your music business

Create a content, release and/or performance schedule that gets you creating and sharing regularly  

Cope with perfectionism, self doubt, inaction, failure, comparison and distractions

Manage your time so you are efficient and effective 

Network and collaborate with others to grow your business


Email me if this sparks your CURIOSITY

What SEA Alumni
are saying...


Chuck Jay 


The business training was the game changer. I literally was lost in thickets of information on the internet, not knowing where to start. But man, when those business modules came into play, it's like everything feel into place. And I still use them to this day!

Sometimes I came into a session tired, anxious, and unmotivated for my day, and came out ready to make strides. The short meditation sessions had a really calming effect that haven’t achieved in the past, and afterward I usually felt like my chaotic mind was a little more organized and I wanted to sit down and write some music or record something.


Gustavo Palma

Before working with Bailey, I was struggling with my worth as an artist and how I felt I wasn't maximizing my potential.

She helped me find a way to ignore the critic in my head and to accept that mistakes are a part of success. I have a better attitude towards my self worth, self reflection and ... better financial planning and creative worth of my skills.

If you want to start taking yourself seriously as an artist and as a human being, contact Bailey ASAP!

Let me share the deets:

Here is what we will cover in this program, which offers a unique combination of business coaching, mentorship, education and artistic development: 

You are Infinite Possibilities

I will introduce you to visioning exercises and mindset work that I have successfully used with myself and my clients that will open you up to a broader vision for the meaning and purpose of your life. You will gain clarity on how you want your music career and business to operate, identify viable income streams and learn how to overcome obstacles along the way.

Sing and Share with Courage

Over the course of our 14 weeks together, you will ship  a minimum of 6 projects so you can put what you learn in the program into practice with my support. Some of these projects will be your creative work (ie. releasing music, performing) and some will be business related projects (signing clients, booking gigs, social media content etc).

Cultivate Courage and Confidence

I will offer mindfulness practices that help you cultivate the resilience, focus, confidence and courage you need to work through performance anxiety, perfectionism, self-doubt, comparison, failure and allow you to name and claim your vital role as a creative contributor to your community. 

Achieve Your Dreams

I will guide you through goal setting systems that make it possible for you to break your big dreams into achievable short-term goals, work towards them consistently, and see real results in the creation of your music business and dream life.

Money Management

The truth is that committing yourself fully to your music business is a little risky, particularly in the financial department. However, there are ways to mitigate those risks, and create a financially sound business, even if you think you are "terrible with money." You will learn how to transform the story you are telling about money and work so you can build a solid, supportive financial foundation from which you can generously create and share your art. You will also work with our guest coach and financial expert, Kayla Faccilongo, to learn how to raise your earning potential as a professional singer and manage your money like a business owner. 

Legitimize your Business

Learn essential marketing, branding, and business strategies that will help you grow your audience, make you seen as *legit* in the eyes of your industry, and get you on the fast track to exponentially growing your singing opportunities. This includes learning how to do effective market research, identify viable business ideas, write a business plan, network and collaborate, social media content and more.

Reclaim Your Time

This is the part for all of you right-brainers out there who have never been too organized, methodical or intentional about how you spend your time :)

We will work together to create schedules and routines that truly support your unique creative flow and you will gain time management tools that help you create the life and business you desire. 

Accountability and Support

I will be with you every step of the way for 14 weeks which includes weekly business coaching and development sessions, weekly artistic development sessions (can include voice lessons if desired) and direct access to me in between sessions for immediate needs or concerns. 

My primary job is to hold you accountable, reflect your own greatness back to you, root you on through your successes and failures and give you the structure and support you need to create the artistic life you deserve.

As you can see, this program is designed to the INTERNAL and EXTERNAL work that will align you with your purpose and passion. I will offer you support, systems and most importantly accountability so that you can get on track to living the life you dream of.



Q: What is the Singing Entrepreneur Academy?

The Singing Entrepreneur Academy is 14 weeks of intensive 1:1 music business mentorship and coaching, as well as artistic development coaching (which can include voice lessons if so desired). 
It is a program I designed to help singers take their fledgling music work and turn it into a thriving music business. 
During the 14 week program, we work together to develop your music business and your art and artistry (aka your product) so you can start making the income you deserve and desire as a pro musician. 
The program is hosted on a platform called Mighty Networks which is where you will access the SE Community, the SE Course, the Voice Lessons Course, The SE Sessions Replay Library and more resources to help you through the program and that will continue to support you after you have finished. 
The program has helped students quit their restaurant jobs, start their own music studio, get back in the saddle and start pursuing their music career after a long hiatus, build the confidence and courage they need to go after their big juicy singing dreams, get organized and focused and more. 
I created this program because after a lifetime in music education as a student and a teacher I have seen huge gaps in what we offer in traditional music programs. If singers want to make their living as a professional musician, they must learn business and entrepreneurship skills in addition to the development of their instrument and musicianship. 
And that is where the SE Academy comes in.
