Calling all South African musicians: plan now to take over South Africa and the world in 2012 by booking a one-on-one, private consultation with author and music industry trainer David Chislett
The music industry has become a very competitive and unstructured place over the last few years. Thanks to digital technology, the internet and the decline of major record labels, artists have access to the world like never before. But they also have competition like never before. This is often compounded by a lack of real information and knowledge of how to play the business side of the industry and how to plan effectively.
Chislett offers tailor made 2-3 hour sessions to artists who are battling to make head or tail of where they are going, what to do next and who to do it with. As a non-aligned professional he gives guidance on strategy, marketing, business structure and career planning for beginners, intermediate and even long-term professional artists and managers.
If you need to know more about the business, how to build a plan to take your music further or just want to figure out how it all works and how you fit in, you can book a one-on-one consultation with Chislett. He will send you a questionnaire in advance and book you a session at your mutual convenience. Then, based on your answers, he will talk through your challenges and using his experience, know-how and contacts, build you a plan to help you solve your challenges and move your career forward.
In addition, you will walk away with helpful documents (like templates for bookings, press release and gig guides) as well as a copy of Chislett’s book “1,2,1,2: A Step By Step Guide To The SA Music Industry.”
The cost for all of the above is a meagre R800.00. Group pricing for bands, studios or artist stables is also available on request.
So stop scratching your head and wondering how you’re going to crack you music career wide open, or hoping that somehow one day, someone will discover you, email David Chislett on firstname.lastname@example.org today. He will send you the questionnaire and you can start looking into the problems you are experiencing and how best to solve them.
“I wanted to thank you for the inspirational and motivational chat you had with Arctic Jinn. You really got through to the guys. They seem far more grounded and realistic now and prepared to focus on the hard work necessary to get where they want to go. You spoke in a really accessible way to them and because of your vast experience in the industry they were open to all you had to say. Every single one of them left enlightened, inspired and motivated.
Many thanks, you’ve certainly lifted a load off my shoulders and made my job as manager a whole lot easier.
