Overview

You are looking to play music and have fun doing it, and maybe even make some money at the same time?

There are lots of different types of bookings available and we will explore the options. Information will be a key factor in helping you to make the choices between the options that present themselves.

A person who has the musical skills necessary to play one or more instruments may have the desire to become a professional musician or work in a related field. The intent of this manual is to give you an insight into how you can achieve those goals and subsequently earn a comfortable living.

One of the most important factors to consider when entering into any new field is to determine if there is a need for the service that you are providing. Whatever you attempt has to be marketable in order to make a profit. You perform by providing entertainment, and in exchange receive money for your services. If you can do this on a regular basis, you can become successful.

Your market will include, but not be limited to a person, group of people, or organization that requires a specific service, for example music. Marketing that product means simply preparing your product (music) and making it available to the consumer. A rock and roll club needs rock bands, Branson, Mo., needs country and easy listening, and Las Vegas needs production numbers with style.

The person going to a concert wants to be entertained, the bar owner wants a high gate as his cover charge helps to pay you, and the bride wants her wedding to be a hit and also memorable.

Order this guide today and get a blueprint that will teach you how to make a full-time living as a musician.

    Great Inspiration.

    One of the few welll written books on getting started in music in music. Welll written with a clrear outlined plan. This book could be helpful in a number of gemres besides music. This book focuses on strategy instead of emotion as music books often do. If you are looking for a lot of emotion, I would move on.
