** MEMBERS TALK ABOUT RECORDING, MENTORING

This week in the members area, musicians are comparing notes with me and with each other about all kinds of crucial topics, like when it’s right to start working on a full length album, or what to do with young musicians that need strong career guidance. Because our members can track new posts with e-mail or RSS, we’re enjoying some enlightened (and speedy) conversation. You can learn more about our special members program and even try it out for yourself:

** ASK ME ANYTHING ABOUT YOUR MUSIC CAREER

Six times every month, I get on the phone to answer questions, talk radio style, from readers, clients, and members. Just you, me, a handful of very smart musicians, and the raw information you need to succeed. Try out one of our upcoming classes – if you’re not already a spinme.com member, register for one of our “open phones” classes. If you like what you hear and you join our membership program, we’ll rebate your class registration fee during the month of August.
