‘Gender Disparity in UK Jazz – A discussion’ is the new book by Sammy Stein, in which she provides a clear vision of the current state of the jazz music scene in terms of gender equality. We recommend it to understand the circumstances and be able to think of informed solutions to move forward. You can find it in Kindle at Amazon UK or elsewhere at just £2.00 as an eBook, £15 as a paperback.
Help Musicians is an independent UK charity created with the aim of providing support in times of need but also in times of opportunity, so every musician has what they need to reach their goals. We advise you take a look at their website to see what they are currently offering due to the pandemic and in general, as we believe some of you could find very beneficial programmes to get back on your feet now that the restrictions have been softened.
We welcome these news and hope they give a boost to all our brass and wind interpreters, who have had a very hard time these past months. May we meet on stages again soon!
It has been just a few days since we expressed our disbelief at the delay of the decision by the government to allow indoor performances. We mentioned that the measure would be studied again on August 15th and said that, given the circumstances, we expected nothing much than another delay. To our surprise, the outcome was quite the opposite. Indoor performances are allowed since last Saturday!
As you know, our latest workshop took place online through the span of several weeks, as opposed to our regular face to face one day events. One of the results of the workshop was the community group, which has remained active after the masterclasses were done and has provided a space to our members to communicate and collaborate. If you are wondering how to have access to this group if you don’t have it, or whether it will continue active, keep reading!
Great news! Last Friday, 17 July, our Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that indoor live performances should be able to resume in England from Saturday 1 August subject to pilot schemes being successful.
Starting today, we are going to make a monthly recap of Millicent’s podcast so newcomers can have a good overview of what has been covered so far, people who dropped the podcast at some point have an easier time coming back, and regular listeners have an index to locate their interests in a faster way.
Millicent is preparing everything for launching a comprehensive, effective and practical course on how to earn money from your music. This e-learning opportunity will cover all the different aspects you need to pay attention to in and out of your performance, and to ensure it is as helpful and informative as it can be, we need your help.
After a comprehensive review of all things EPK, this is the episode that wraps it up. Let’s review the entire list of things your press kit should have, who should you look up for help to make the kit effective and unforgettable, and most importantly, what are those three key things that you just cannot omit, the three pillars that will get you the gigs you want.
This marks 20 episodes of Success Beyond The Score! Thank you all for your support, encouragement and engagement, that is what has taken this podcast from a nice little effort to help friends find their way in the professional music world to a major resource with five starts in iTunes. I could not be happier!
