Organize Your Band: Success and Sustainability
A more reasonable definition of success for the practicing musician is simply to be able to MAKE A LIVING by making music. Remember “making music” can cover a lot of ground and “making a living,” means different things to different people. When most people think of a living in the music business they tend to only consider performing as a source of income. To sustain yourself, you must begin to think of other income streams involving music and make use of your talents in other areas as well. Being able to generate alternate sources of revenue as individuals and as a band is imperative if you’re planning to do music and nothing else.
