all aspects of their careers. Although the book is written primarily for musicians aspiring for full-time professional performing careers, the chapters include practical tips and guidelines that can also be applied to music teachers, composers, and freelancers...This book could easily be used as a
textbook for a group of musicians to discuss, ponder, and creatively experiment with promoting their own music making and creating their own "career paths."--American Music Teacher
