Time Management for Musicians

Description:

You can keep time when you're playing, but can you do it offstage? Just as time is the foundation of music, time management is the basis of organization -- and every independent musician has got to be organized. Running the business side of your music career requires keeping multiple rhythms simultaneously: Email, social media, booking, promoting, rehearsing, performing, writing, recording.... It's so easy to lose your place and miss opportunities or burn bridges. In this session, led by a professional organizer who specializes in chronic disorganization, learn how to get a grip on all aspects of your career by taking control of your time.
