Survival In Today's Music Business - Hamilton Musicians Guild Seminar On Music Marketing

"Knowledge is power," remarked Hamilton Musicians Guild president Larry Feudo in a recent interview with The View's Ric Taylor. "The idea of a seminar is to provide a focus for the aspiring professional musician who needs some answers to critical questions that aren't readily available out there," adds Feudo. "This is in keeping with the Local’s mandate to represent and serve the professional musician. We hope this will reach the musical community and let them know that HMG293 is not your father’s union and is as relevant today as it was in 1903 when it was founded. It will always be the choice of professionals for representation.

To sum up the theme of the presentation: More income streams, but each one is smaller than in years past. Creativity and commitment to seek out and maximize incomes streams is the key to survival in today's music business.
