A lot of what I’ve learned about being a working musician comes from other musicians who were king enough to share their thoughts with me.

There are articles on how to conduct from the piano, how to create an online presence and the average income of a musician. One of the most insightful writers is music director/ pianist David Hahn who writes about calculating a musician hourly rate, top 10 gigs who may not have thought of, and tips on resume and business cards.
