Mentoring & Artist Development
for Serious Musicians

Music is the universal language. And it’s been speaking to you for quite some time. Your desire to create and perform great music is so strong, it tugs at you constantly. When you’re on stage, it feels like home.

You’re tired of struggling, playing for free or next to nothing, and wondering if you’re ever going to figure this music thing out. The naysayers say things like “You’ll never be able to survive,” or “It’s nearly impossible to make it as a musician. It’s even tougher for a Christian artist.” All you know is that you have to do this. You were born to do this.

You don’t want to be cooped up in an office all day doing a job that sucks the life out of you. Your mission is to share your God-given talent and your message with the world. Whether you’re a band, solo artist, or a parent of a talented teen, I’m here to help you.

View More: name is Dori Staehle, MBA, Founder and CEO of Rock the Next Stage, near Raleigh, NC. I’m also a percussionist (Yes, that’s me with the tambourine in the header above.). I’ve spent the past 15 years booking, coaching, and mentoring hundreds of local bands and solo artists so that they can use their God-given talents and do what they love! Many have toured, opened for national acts, performed at huge festivals, got music placements, auditioned for shows like American Idol, and some got signed. I specialize in Christian artists and young talent but have worked with many others. I’ve also booked, managed, and promoted huge concerts with multiple acts. As a Christian, I’m looking for music that is positive and inspirational in some way.

I have a special blend of services that you won’t find anywhere else. It’s one-stop shopping for musicians!
