Description

Become A Professional Touring Musician is a course for the new or experienced musician who desires to make a living at performing music either full time or part time. This course is not about becoming a better musician. That is up to your talent and work commitment. This course of for musicians who have worked hard to master their instrument, composed and practiced the music and want to make a living performing. Studying music and becoming an accomplished instrumentalist, singer or composer are only half the skills necessary to becoming a successful touring musician. In order to make a living and grow your audience and popularity, you must also study the business side of the music world. By applying and practicing the concepts presented here with the same enthusiasm and commitment as your art, you will be able to earn the type of money that can sustain a long career.

Everything presented here works. It will be hard at first, because developing the business mind seems contrary to the more creative mind of the artist. There are many variations of the concepts and overtime you will find your unique viewpoint and develop your own processes and you may find that this side of your life can also be very creative and fulfilling. All of the material here was developed through years of experimental trial & error. Making mistakes is good, trying new ideas for promotion, product sales, performance are similar to the first draft of a song. You work with it, workshop it to others, get feedback, re-write and start again until it works. Take the concepts presented and make them work for you.

Who this course is for:
  • Musicians who want to earn money performing music part time or full time
