Let’s face it, if you’re not world famous – you haven’t been doing enough to put yourself out there. This is what separates a moderately talented musician who achieves fame and success vs. the best pianist you’ve never heard, who sits alone in his room practicing all day. Part of making money as a working musician comes down to the amount of value you can add to your student’s, client’s, and audience’s lives. Practice and playing just for yourself is a hobby at best and selfish at worst – music is gift to give to others.
I started this blog as a means of keeping myself accountable and continuing to improve my success as a musician. Over the years, many friends and students have asked me for advice regarding teaching jobs, practice habits, emailing event planners, and booking gigs. The biggest part of the process is staying humble and living in a constant state of learning from your mistakes, trying new things, and from interacting with the world around you.
Gig Smarter will show you how to give others that gift and make money in the process.
