Networking in the Music Business, Without Being Annoying

Episode 3

Play episode

So, you want to break into the scene, get more gigs and advance your music career? HINT: Be a friend, not a used car salesman (or saleswoman of course).

The word “networking” often gets a bad connotation because most musicians simply go about it in the wrong way. The music business (and every music scene) is connected by relationships. These relationships include real people with real human traits and nobody likes pushy sales tactics. Join Adam Small and Jake Moses from My Music Masterclass as they discuss the dos and don’ts of networking in the industry.

Topics include: networking, making connections, getting gigs, listening, making friends, hanging, being a genuine person, helping others, non-music skills, having a positive attitude and more.

Guest

Professional musician, bassist, composer, founder of My Music Masterclass & sleep-deprived over-achiever.

Guest

Professional guitarist, pianist, director of media at My Music Masterclass, coffee snob & social media cynic.

  • wow. There was a lot of “ouch” there. Felt like you guys were getting at a lot of my issues. I might have to listen to it a couple of times over.

    • Thanks for the feedback Paul and we’re glad this episode was helpful. Keep building relationships and making friends. That’s what it’s about!
