* What's wrong with your music career?

Are you getting the results you want? It's always amazing to me that
regardless of the little, to no, or even poor responses that artists
get when they send out the same press kit to the media and the
industry, they still continue to use it. Well here is my invitation
to you to send me a copy of your CD and your press kit or promotional
material that you send to the press, radio stations and clubs. I will
review it and if I think that I can help you rewrite it to get better
results I will call you.

Mail your CDs and materials to my attention at:

* Your live performance and the results it generates. One of the new
workshops at this year's MUSIC STRATEGIES. *

This year at MUSIC STRATEGIES (http://www.MusicStrategies.com)
I will be addressing one of the ongoing frustrations in your music
career.

How many times over the years have you spent an endless amount of
time trying to get the media, the industry or just the people on your
mailing list to come out to your shows? Then when they do and you try
to ask them what they thought, they give you an unenthusiastic
response of "it was good or it was okay." Or even more frustrating,
no response at all. Nothing can be more frustrating than this.
Especially if you have gone to a conference with the hope that
someone important will see you showcase.

And lets not forget when you play a show and hardly sell any CDs!
There's nothing like the feeling of selling 2 or 3 CDs to a crowd of
50 or more people! What happening?!

At this year's MUSIC STRATEGIES Conference I will randomly select
artists get up and perform for everyone at the conference. Then we
will make changes to their visual live performances and discuss the
performance strategies that will get the attention and sales you want
from your shows.

* New Article: Stop looking for excuses for your music career *

In almost every conversation that I have with an artist, they start
giving me excuses why their music career isn't farther along. "I
didn't have enough time to promote the last show the way I wanted so
we didn't have as many people." "I don't have enough money to make
CDs or CD samplers." "The rest of the people in my band won't do the
work." Any of these sound familiar? Maybe all of them. Are there's
more you can add?

This month's new article addresses the first two ways you have to
avoid so you can move your music career to the next level. The new
article is post on our web site at http://www.TSAMusic.com
