Have you ever heard about the elevator pitch? It is the notion of being able to sell an idea to a producer you stumbled upon in the elevator, using only the time it takes for you both to reach the floor you are going to: about 30 seconds, probably less. Well, the music bio wants to achieve the same level of effectiveness in written form. How to achieve that? Let’s hear Millicent in today’s episode of Success Beyond the Score.
Very rarely, if ever, a song is completely made by a single person. In bands, lyrics, chords and melodies come from different members, some times separately, some times during a brainstorming session. Both bands and solo artists ask for advice, second opinions, some feedback to get that spark, and more and more people get involved. How to split shares when the time comes?
Bands are a bit like long-term relationships, and, in that regard, it is essential that you develop communication strategies to overcome disagreements without aggression. In this episode, Millicent uses tools as the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator to help you find some ways to deal with personality clashes and keep your band on rails.
Two heads think better than one, but at the same time, they bring the misunderstandings, disagreements and confrontations to the table, and with those come some negative feelings that can ruin the entire experience. To help with that, Millicent brings in this episode ten rules to address the issues that arise when you work in a band or group.
In this episode, Millicent shares 10 points of etiquette for managing your business cards. You don’t have to be a musician to benefit from this advice, as these are great tips relevant to any sector of business.
These guidelines for business cards are useful for people who wants to create them by themselves as well as for those who plan on hiring a graphic designer. Listen in SoundCloud or iTunes.
In this episode, Millicent gives you some insights to help you shape your image and sell what you do in a better way.
In the third episode of Success Beyond The Score, Millicent explains some strategies for you to get where you want in your music career instead of waiting around for someone else to make it happen.
