About the eBook
Musicians today live in a golden age of tools and technology. Nowadays a basic smartphone app can give you the functionality of an expensive recording studio. A new song can be shared with the world and also tutorials for every sound design or music production technique can be found through a Google search. All of these developments have served to level the playing field for musicians, therefore making it possible for a bedroom producer to create music at a stage of a major-label artist.
While things happen fast in the new music industry, nowadays it’s simply not enough to only make music if you wanna build a successful career. So what should a musician do from the early stages to breakthrough.
