I have been many things in my short life. Some know me as a session
guitarist, from gigs around London or from the TV. Others know me as the
shy kid from school. More recently people know me as an author,
investor and businessman.
I write about what I know, care about
and have some interest in. As a musician I have started writing books
to fill in some gaps for keen students who want to learn more.
If you have ever wondered how to get your band touring, then
you need this book.
I will show you how to book, manage and profit from your
next tour. We will cover the different options you have, how to find and book
venues, how to budget and work out all the costs involved with touring.
We will spend some time talking marketing and publicity –
both are essential for getting tickets sold. And I will explain how to source
and sell merchandise profitably.
In this book, you will discover
what teaching is, how to do it properly and learn how to find out if you're
good or not.
I'll talk you through the options
you have in order to make money from teaching. We'll talk about how to run a
business plus I will give you some killer marketing tips, which will help you
to gain new students.
This really is the book; I wish I
was given when I started teaching over 10 years ago.
I’ll explain how
good you have to be to actually get work and the steps you can take today in
order to become good enough. I’ll talk
you through the essential pieces of gear you will need.
You will at some
point have to audition, I will talk you through how to prepare and what to
expect. We’ll also deal with overcome rejection.
