Publisher's Summary

Are you an amateur musician, singer, or songwriter trying to make a living out of your hobby? Or perhaps you’re already a seasoned professional who knows his/her way around but still cannot master the business side of music making? Regardless of your act, there are certain things you must know that are truly critical for your success and without them you just won't build anything sustainable.  

Often times, music business guides concentrate too much on the unnecessary technical details of the music business (does anyone really need to read about a typical tour rider?). Or really minor aspects of music production (does anyone really care how much you should EQ the highs of your guitar track?). However, rarely do these books try to create a complete system of knowledge and show you what and how to prioritize when building your business.  

My Music - My Business was designed differently. It is an indispensable book for those, who are thinking of finally taking their music business seriously. It’s meant to be the foundation of your future business, and will help you finally advance your career as a musician. 

Here is what you’re going to learn inside:

  • The exact list of crucial things to focus and develop in yourself and your craft to have a long-lasting music career
  • Who provides the highest value in your music business team and who you should ignore at all costs
  • The foundational industry guide - from key personas in your career, to the legal questions, your royalties, and record deals
  • The right approach to building your loyal following
  • The sources of income - what, how and where to get paid for your music
  • And so much more!  

If you ever wondered where should you begin and what you should focus on to start making money from your music, then do not wait any longer. Buy My Music - My Business today!

Nice guide

If you want to be a more informed music business owner/manager, and you don't feel like wasting your time sifting through frilly his verbose crap, just click buy and start listening this audio. Take a look at his other book Start Your Music Business as well.

5 stars!

Well-made and not too overwhelming. Begins with a mindset piece and then gets into details. It's sort of a 'complete all music business guide' - but without getting into too many technical details.

Great book, recommended

I got both books of Tim (this one and the part about playlisting).
I think this is a great set of books. It's a must have for ALL musicians, no exceptions. If you're serious about your music and ready to treat is as a BUSINESS, then reading or listening to this book will save you so much TIME, MONEY and ENERGY.
Highly recommended.

Good effort!

This is a very good introduction into the world of modern music business. Lots of subjects covered, so It definitely needs a few listening sessions. I can't say I heard some true revelations here, but I guess the idea was to cover all the bases which are crucial for a modern indie musician. Overall, I'd recommend the book to all musicians.

I have also got the 2nd part of this series ('Streaming & playlisting') - check it out. The content is more unique there and for my state of music affairs (I'm not a live musician) - it's actually very valuable.

How neat this is. Packed with information I can utilize in exploring the music industry. There are few resources online with helpful details, so this one’s partially good.

Notable work by Tim.

If you want to have your big break in the music business, better hear this. I personally find it so informative that I want to have a paperback version if it has one. I can even settle for the ebook version whatever is available now. It’s so worth it!

Conclusive book.

One of the few good books out there which I’m consulting now in order to avoid the common pitfalls. Although it’s pretty long, it has been very entertaining and insightful.

Curious about the music industry.

Music is becoming one of my hobbies and I’m curious about the music industry. How others can start make a living out of it. There are many good books out there but nothing compares to this which taught me to prioritize and focus on technical details first that matter. Very nice!

Very useful

Meaning that if you have some flair for this business or are already somewhat experimented at it, this book won't be too much use to you. For people that are new to this and don't have clue on how to approach it, it's a good buy.
