For this workshop we will teach you how to book gigs and then how to present the event effectively online to get people out to your show.

Creating A Life In Music
1) MUSIC + GIGS = Foundation
This is the necessary part of the equation, the music has to be good and you grow as a musician and increase your exposure to fans when you play gigs. This is work but shouldn’t feel like it.
2) CONTENT + SOCIAL = Awareness
This is about capturing and displaying what you and your music is about to an audience. The content should be consistent and created with purpose. It should be released with intention and with goals. This is work and it sometimes feels like it.
3). FANS + MERCH = Growth
This is how to support your ability to make music and play gigs. Developing your voice as an artist and/or a band is the key to engaging your fanbase and allowing them to invest in your growth. If they see something in what you are doing they will support you... if you let them. This is work and will feel like work.
When you find a way to align all three of these things you create
A Life in Music.
