Making money from teaching and playing
Sunday 20th October Hadlow in Kent. 10 till 4
Over thirty five years of experience in music and running my own teaching practice. Now I am going to show you how to make money from music. In that time I have taught thousands of people, I exam here and abroad, I write books and promote my musical interests. I have learnt many things in that time that are not found in books, the tricks of the trade if you will. They are the communication skills, the marketing ideas the business techniques that make the difference between it being a hobby and making money.
This has been motivated in part by the economic climate because a few of my pupils have asked me so they can make money and I thought it was time that I put this information out.
You might be thinking to yourself ‘ I could go and buy a book about this’, and you could but I does not get to the real facts and points that I cover in the seminar 'making money from teaching and playing' because a book can only go so far. In this seminar I cut to the chase and pack the information for you not only that you will become part of a network so you can share ideas and ask questions.
My other fascination apart from music is that of business and marketing and I have read literally hundreds of books and listened to hours and hours of talks on business and marketing. I have interviewed successful businessman and then written a book on the subject.
For me running a successful business as a musician is down to the business and not the music because you could be the best but if no one knows you or you are a bad communicator you will not succeed.
You may know many great bedroom musicians, you may be one yourself but I want you to go out into the outside world and make money!
Now the economic climate is tough also means paradoxically that you have an opportunity to start or develop your business and because you have to think about pricing and value you will have a stronger business for it.
For those of you already earning money from music this seminar will be able to help you lock your musical skills together to make money. This is a skill that I am good at because I had to be and I learnt the hard way so take the opportunity to learn from the thousands of pounds of my investment and get yourself increasing your income.
