After searching around the web about how to obtain some kind of task in the music industry, I have actually never truly had the ability to discover what I was searching for. All of the tips that I located were either regarding getting involved in recording, production, sound/lighting, tool fixing, helping large firms, or some other music-related fields that I was not always interested in. None of those points really appealed to me though. Deep down, I just wanted to PLAY. I really did not want a job in “the songs field” if it didn’t involve actually playing. I intended to PLAY ONLINE SONGS. Well, I am currently doing that. In fact, I’m rather pleased to claim that I stopped my day job as a mechanical designer, and I am now a full-time guitar player for a remarkable band! I should state that it was most likely the very best choice that I’ve ever before made in my whole life! I have actually determined to compose several books about how I made this drastic lifestyle adjustment for myself. This one is about how to make “playing online music” become your part-time or full-time “task”… That’s if you also could call it a work!
Running an actual functioning band is a service. Yes, it is great deals of fun playing in a band, but in order to take your band out of the method area and also develop a name on your own where you play several paying jobs weekly, it takes some work. The work is not necessarily tough. Instead, it’s just about intelligently marketing your “product”. Your “product” in this case is your band (or yourself if you are a solo musician).
I’ve played in several bands throughout my life trying to find the “best band” if you will. I recognized that when I discovered the right band, compared to I would certainly put all of my power into taking them regarding I possibly could. I’m presently in exactly what I would consider to be the ideal band for exactly just what I’m searching for, and over the last 5 years my band mates as well as I have actually transformed exactly what utilized to be just an enjoyable side pastime, right into a real income-generating organisation. Discovering “the perfect band” is exactly what the initial chapter has to do with.
We usually play 4 jobs each week, often much more. Never ever do we ever before play any kind of less then two times each week. Each gig generates us varying quantities of money. We make numerous thousand dollars weekly (as much as $4000, yet never any type of much less after that $1000)! At the price we are going, we fully plan to be making more in the near future! I have actually always desired for being able to play guitar and consider it to be “my work”, and also I am now living that desire.
This really did not take place through luck. It happened via shear determination to do well as well as the application of clever advertising and company approaches. I outlined exactly just how we did it in the book. Every one of the steps can be reproduced by anyone, as well as you can do the exact same thing for your band.
In the book, I talk about every little thing associated with business consisting of finding the appropriate team of people to play with, advertising techniques, building a following of followers, settlement strategies, and also a number of the other essential components in running a successful band.
I could not assure you that your band will ever become as huge as the Beatles. Nevertheless, I could ensure that if you comply with the exact same service design, you can obtain your band to the point where you are gaining a number of thousand bucks each week!
This is yet among several methods to transform your passion into your means of earning a living!
