Musicians' Corner (found under the '...and more' menu button) contains articles aimed more at musicians, instrumentalists, and teachers than music-loving members of the general public. All information given is either the result of first-hand experience or careful research. Advice, tips, recommendations, ideas and suggestions are given in good faith and carry no guarantees.
It is my hope that these articles will help up-and-coming musicians to achieve their musical goals.
In addition to the articles appearing in Musicians' Corner I have a book that may be of interest to anyone aiming for a career in music as a performer:
Breaking Into the Music Business: An Essential Guide for Performers
The book contains a wealth of information based on my 30-years' experience as a performer and teacher and is available as an eBook from Amazon.co.uk or Amazon.com.
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.
With an eBook reader you are able to view pages and even download a sample free!
