Approached from the mindset of a small business, Mr. Galper shows musicians how to find performance opportunities and how to market yourself to secure work. The Touring Musician sheds light on how to effectively organize yourself and your band, how to deal with promotion and the press, and how to convince venues to hire you. In addition, this book teaches musicians how to overcome many of the common barriers to their own success. Written in a friendly and engaging style, the Touring Musician is clear and easy to understand, with numerous examples and real world anecdotes. It is applicable to any style of music, and frankly, to performing careers of any type. Hal Galper effectively destroys the cliche that "there just isn't enough work out there" ! Even if you are a fairly successful musician, I guarantee that you will find new ideas and techniques to expand your career.
If you are a musician, YOU OWE IT TO YOURSELF TO GET THE TORUING MUSICIAN and learn the tools within it from cover to cover. I have been a professional musician for ten years and since utilizing the techniques in this book, I have scheduled more work, and higher paying work, than ever before. Every musician that I have lent this book to has immediately purchased it!
There is real satisfaction in doing what you love; this book will help you realize your professional goals. I feel that the Touring Musician is one of the best investments I have made in my career. I strongly encourage you to do the same.
This book is just what I was looking for to start my booking agency. Thanks to the author and the publisher.
