Article title - Breaking into the Music Business - on a colourful background.

Front cover of the book 'Breaking Into the Music Business: An Essential Guide for Performers'.

Breaking Into the Music Business: An Essential Guide for Performers, is a book that spells out what needs to be done and how to go about doing it in order to break into the music business as a performer. It is packed with information and advice for musicians of any age who want some sort of career performing, either as a semi-professional or professional.

Originally the book was intended to be a short article for this site, but it grew well beyond anything anyone would read on a webpage.

It is available as an eBook from Amazon. If you don’t have an eBook reader, such as a Kindle, you can download an eBook reading App for a variety of smartphones, computers and tablets, free from Amazon. You are also able to preview part of the book and receive a free sample before purchase.

If you are serious about becoming a performing musician, Breaking Into the Music Business: An Essential Guide for Performers is well worth taking a look at.
