I started this portion of my website for many reasons. One of the main ones is that when I first in the music business years ago there was not a lot of resources available for the DIY musician. Now a days there is help readily available for those who have the time, desire and compassion to sift thru it and read,invest and stay at it. I wanted to try to put together a part of my site to offer tools, tips ideas, stratgies that may help you in your efforts. I offer tools that specialize in Artist Development, Coaching & Consulting, Music Marketing (including Website Development and Social Media Strategy and Planning), Music Supervision, and Song Pitching.
