Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Professional musicians tell how they developed as artists, how they approach performance, and how they handle the business side of the business—offering solace and heartfelt inspiration along the way. How to Grow as a Musician is packed with candid advice on everything from overcoming failure to the art of writing a song to doing that all—important "ego check." It also covers such vital practical areas as the role of contracts, self—promotion, getting and keeping gigs, and managing money. A special self—evaluation lets readers assess whether they have what they need to succeed in the music business.

Synopsis:

Musicians 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 savor every word of this revealing guide.
