What All Musicians Must Know to Succeed
By (author) Sheila E. Anderson
How to Grow as a Musician by Sheila E. Anderson
Book DescriptionMusicians finding their artistic voices and developing the right character for their craft will find solace and inspiration in this collection of intimate interviews. By revealing the large and small moments that have helped to define their lives and careers, musicians discuss how they developed as artists, how they approach performance, and how they handle the business side of music. Readers will learn how others selected musical genres; how they learned their craft or instruments; the difference between formal education and learning on the stage; personal approaches to practicing and composing; and much more. Candid advice is offered for overcoming success and failure; doing ego checks; and letting relationships affect art. From a musician's point of view, the book examines the role of contracts, self-promotion, getting and keeping gigs, and managing money. A special self-evaluation is also offered for readers to assess whether they have what it takes for a life in music. Anyone wanting to benefit from the wisdom of those who have learned their lessons the hard way will savour every word of this revealing guide.
