ALL musicians have the performance skills, but many are lacking in how to turn that into profit. In this course, you will learn 40 ideas on How To Make Money as a Musician.
It doesn't matter whether you are a professional or intermediate musician, there is something in this course for everyone. I (James Divine, the instructor), have been in the music business for 30+ years. I've implemented many of these ideas successfully myself, and have seen all of them be implemented by someone.
Who this course is for:
- Any musician who wants practical, outside the box ideas on ways to make money using their music
There once was a little boy named Jimmy whose mom told him he could be anything he wanted…a policeman, a doctor, a lawyer, even the President of the United States. I exceeded all her expectations and became a music teacher!
I’m now a grown man with four kids (I married my high school sweetheart) and six grandkids. I love eating pizza, mountain biking, spending time with family, and long walks in the mountains holding hands (sorry, I reserve that for only one person, and it’s not you). My shoe size is 9.5 but please don’t send me any shoes…I’ll tell you more about that in a minute.
I teach middle school music at a Title I school, still finding time to speak, write, and podcast.
Now for the boring, adult stuff…
I earned a bachelor’s degree from St. Joseph’s College in Maine and received my music education from the Army School of Music. I served in the Army Band for 10 years in Virginia, Japan, and Colorado. I earned a teaching license from Western State University in Colorado and completed a master’s in music education at Southwestern Oklahoma State University. I believe in the value of life-long learning!
