This is not to say that schools of music do not offer a good variety of music courses. They do. However, the reading material that you are about to embark on is the perfect complement to a formal music education OR as a stand alone informational product for artists pursuing a different course in their music.
Some of the chapter titles provide a glimpse into their contents such as: Creating a unique sound vocally or instrumentally, Truthfully defining your idea of Success in a career path, Studying your craft, Singing versus screeching, Software that adjusts your dysfunctional tone or pitch, Work attitude and Manners.
In the chapter on Songwriters you will find that it is one of the more informative on the market today. You'll see how one of the best songwriters ever, utilizes words to get the desired effect.
The chapters also give examples of current singers and the greats from the past who practiced these hidden traits faithfully in order to succeed.
One of the most information loaded chapters is about Your Music and the Internet. It lists each of the steps to take when putting together your CD starting with Preparation, Licensing rights, Recording studios, Cover design graphics, Manufacturing and Marketing.
In all areas of development you are given the appropriate companies you could use and their addresses. And if that isn't enough you are given all the intricacies or getting your product listed in iTunes. As in any project there are always obstacles and you are shown how to maneuver around them in accomplishing your goal.
I hope that as you immerse yourself into this prescription for success you will be excited as you enhance your learning experience. It is knowing about these extra hidden or forgotten things that add to your being an all around better artist.
