Are you new here and just found out about my podcast Success Beyond The Score? Or maybe you listened to the first episodes and lost track of it afterwards. Even if you are a regular listener (thank you for your support!) this recap will be useful to easily find the themes that you want to review and save them for later.
I am pleased to say the formative event “Get Business Ready” by Sound Connections has been rescheduled in a digital format and will take place on July 10th, opening with my talk “How to Future Proof Your Music Business” at 10:00 AM.
We now have a platform with private forums where members can share exercises and WIPs for others to provide feedback. We have a gallery of lessons that they can revisit whenever they want. We had videocalls and shared screenings, we learned together to use a wide arrangement of virtual tools. It was enriching, it was empowering, and it allowed us to rise together against the challenge of the pandemic.
So far, it has been lovely to give sax lessons through the internet. It has opened a lot of possibilities for both students and me, and I must say I deeply enjoy seeing how people who would not get back to their instrument under normal circumstances, give it a chance now and rediscover their voice.
For a limited time, Millicent will be offering live lessons through the videochat platform Zoom, where you will be able to get classes tailored to your specific needs and wishes, in the hours more convenient for both you and her.
For a limited time, you have the chance to sing up for live sax lesson with multi-award winning saxophonist Millicent Stephenson. This rare opportunity will allow you to get classes directly to your home through your favourite videoconference platform (Skype, Zoom, WhatsApp, etc.) and work with Millicent to achieve your own goals.
I am happy to say Sound Connections has invited me to make the keynote speech of their event “Get Business Ready”, dedicated to entrepreneurship in music.
Despite what we would like, success in the music industry has more to it than passion, dedication and discipline. A lot of external factors play into determining whether or not you will be able to get gigs regularly, grow in digital platforms or sign with a record label. Don’t worry, thought, because there are resources available for you to identify and overcome these challenges along the way.
