AGD Entertainment Announces 'Zero to 60' Scholarship

AGD Entertainment has launched the first-ever Zero to 60 (ZT60) Scholarship program designed for the developing 16-20 year-old artist. Applications are open until April 5, 2021 at agdentertainment.com/scholarship. One recipient will receive a full ride to cover their nine-month experience with the ZT60 program; two to three partial ZT60 scholarships will also be offered.

A partnership with national non-profit Notes for Notes will help get the word out to underserved students across the country about the ZT60 scholarship that provides the funding and guidance needed to help artists thrive in the music industry. Notes for Notes is a national non-profit that provides youth with free access to music instruments, instruction and recording studio environments in Boys & Girls Clubs nationwide, so that music may become a profoundly positive influence in their lives.

Zero to 60 by AGD is a day-to-day management service that provides strategy development for recording artists. ZT60 Artist Coaches are trained to move and guide musicians at a steady pace and provide the foundation for an artist’s success in the industry. Artist Coaches understand a ZT60 musician intends to release music and become a confident performer. ZT60 is designed to work with the artist’s personality and develop their brand in line with these goals. Services are available to all artists at any level of career development.

The ZT60 scholarship tagline is “Imagination Into Action,” and encompasses the motivated artist – the aspiring musician who dreams big and invests in themselves. The full scholarship recipient will work with a personal coach on an individualized nine-month campaign to release their album project. Along the way, they’ll benefit from full access to AGD’s team who will help create the visual assets for the release and receive a professional mix/ master on their project. Additionally, two partial scholarship recipients will participate in AGD’s ZT60 program over the nine months, and these artists will work with their personal coach to release their project and hone their skills as a performer.

This is the inaugural year of the “Zero to 60” Scholarship Program, which will be announced annually in conjunction with AGD Entertainment’s “Zero To 60 Awards Show,” hosted every Spring live in Music City. The “Zero To 60 Awards Show” allows the ZT60 artist community to be showcased to all AGD Entertainment friends and partners, and is an integral part of how the company elevates its artists as they grow into their full potential.
