A must-have for any artist or manager at this time of the year is a new look, a fresh approach and solid plan of action. Author and facilitator David Chislett is offering 3 hour consultations to artists and managers wanting to get their house in order at the beginning of the year so as to be able to achieve their music career goals.

Chislett is the author of 1,2,1,2: A Step By Step Guide To The SA Music Industry, the highly successful music business hand-book that is aimed at helping newbies and old hands understand the business end of the music stick. He has spent the last 2 years touring South Africa giving workshops, seminars, talks and consultations to artist and management about the business of music, strategy and planning.

“This is the perfect time of year to take concrete action about realising your musical dreams,” says Chislett of the special offer, “While it is still quiet enough to put some real plans, structure and strategy in place, artists now have the ideal opportunity to spend some time with me and improve their chances of taking their careers in the desired direction.”

These consultations are completely tailored the individual needs of each and every person. They are one-on-one sessions designed to answer the burning questions YOU have about the business, cash flow, marketing, strategy, internet, digital music, licensing and more. The cost is R1 000.00 and includes a copy of 1,2,1,2: A Step By Step Guide To The SA Music Industry as well as document templates, relevant contacts, strategy notes and personalised input directly into your career.

With 25 years of experience in the SA music market, Chislett brings a wealth of knowledge, street smarts, short cuts, insider thinking, plain old common sense and a good dose of wisdom to the table. The consultations are designed to give a practical, hands-on result to very specific challenges that artists face. As such they are tailored to each and every person individually. This means that for every artist there is a new solution and that no two sessions are the same.

“With my experience in so many aspects of the South African industry, I can advise artists on pretty much every aspect of their careers,” continues Chislett, “In my opinion the biggest problem with music in our country is a lack of courage and vision from artists when it comes to setting out their agenda, dreams and desires. Apart from the business advice I give, I also seek to set my clients free from the doubts and misgivings they may have about their work and their chances of success. But at the end of the day, what is required most is that every one of them goes back out into the industry and works really hard to act out the plans we cook up together. Without that, we have nothing.”
