So, you've decided to become a professional musician-to turn your passion into a career. Unlike many professions, there is no clear-cut path to success in the music industry. Now what?

EMMY-winning music producer, studio/session guitarist, and award-winning educator, Kris Hawkins explains some of the most basic and highly misunderstood concepts about what it takes to be a professional musician. Questions are answered like: "How do I find a gig?" "How much do I get paid?" "How much do I charge?" "What's a PRO?"

With over two decades of experience in the industry, Hawkins shares some of the insights that he has gained-successes as well as failures-in the hopes that you will learn from his missteps and triumphs. The Working Musician's Handbook for Professional Success focuses on real-life situations, including:

  • Asserting your value
  • Dealing with clients
  • Protecting your work
  • Treating your music as a business
  • Financial management
  • Finding work and networking

There are many twists and turns within the music industry, and it can seem like a daunting task to try to understand it all. This handbook will be your navigator and will help you develop a workable and effective strategy to start your career off on the right foot.

Industry Reviews
