Musicians want to make music – whether it’s studying, performing, composing or recording. But there’s more to it, especially if you want to make a living out of it. You’ll need to get gigs, release music, promote it and of course… you want to get paid for it.

How do you get gigs? What’s your art worth? How do you present yourself and your music? If you want to make a living as a professional musician you’ll need to be your own manager, booker, PR person and social media strategist. The realization that these things can take up a lot of your attention can be disappointing. You might not even know where to start.

Tonetrigger can help you figure out how to efficiently deal with the daily business side of being a professional musician and how to think like a cultural entrepreneur. That way you can focus your energy on what you do best: making music.
