**Website under re-vamp/construction for 2017**
This site was created to help encourage musicians, singers, and songwriters & people involved in all aspect of the music biz, from all walks of life, think of ideas to come up with part time jobs in music. I have been either making a full time (super modest – but paid my rent and bills) living, or part-time living in music related activities since 2005. The majority of the income has come from playing live music (original and cover bands) & teaching music lessons. But I have also earned some money doing studio work, selling original CD’s at shows, selling my songs online, creating arrangements, singing telegrams (hehe), and more. There are many other ways you can make money in music as well. My goal is to open your eyes in gaining confidence to try new things in music, in your community, and maybe one day beyond your immediate area. Maybe they will create income, maybe not; but creating & learning & getting out there are the most important things! Wouldn’t you rather make some extra part time income for you and your family doing something love, than a boring job you can’t stand? Also, in committing to make money in music, even $50-$100 per month, WILL get you out there in some ways. Will get you practicing & preparing so you can deliver something of musical value to others in some way.
This site is not about how to become rich in music. The opportunities are out there, but I am not going to write about what I don’t know about it. Zero clue on how do do that, sorry. However, my life is committed to writing & singing songs that move people, and learning more and more about the music industry every day. I will share what I discover, but I by no means am an expert. I am a forever student! I recently lived in Nashville for a few years, and it was interesting being a fly on the wall in the music biz & songwriting classes I took.
While this site will explore how to make part-time money in music, update you on info I have run across in the music biz & industry, encourage you to cultivate lifetime musicianship skills and more; the MOST IMPORTANT point – AND ALWAYS WILL BE THE MOST IMPORTANT POINT – is to INSPIRE YOUR LOVE For Making MUSIC and supporting Music! There is no price tag on that. Music will never disappoint you. The “music business” might, but not the Spirit & Heart & Infinite Treasure of Music. 🙂 That’s your own song, no one can take that away from you.
Thanks for your patience as I am re-doing this website & fixing all my pages & links.
