This module is intended for those who have difficulty with such issues as developing a band concept, making choices, working together, communication, sending out demos, finding the right gigs, etc.
What do you want to do in music and where do you begin? In one group lesson we discuss general issues like: What do venues and bookers find important? Should you enter a competition, and why? How does networking work ? What can you do to get noticed by the public, the press and venues? In the individual lesson we cover subjects like: exploring your ‘niche’ of the market; making an appealing “elevator pitch” of your project; which songs should be on your demo and in what order, making a plan with your personal goals.
