Free eBook: Peter Spellman On Developing Music Careers In Uncertain Times

This guest post comes from Dave Cool, the new Blogger In Residence at musician website and marketing platform Bandzoogle

Peter Spellman has released a free e-book for musicians called “Musician 2.0, 3.0, 4.0… Developing Music Careers in Uncertain Times”. Peter is the Director of Career Development at Berklee College of Music in Boston, as well as the Director of Music Business Solutions, and someone who I consider to be one of the great thinkers in the music industry.

Peter’s work has had tremendous impact on me over the years, and really helped shape my philosophies about the music industry. His books “The Self-Promoting Musician” and “INDIE POWER” are must-read classics in my opinion.

“Musician 2.0, 3.0, 4.0” is Peter Spellman at his best, and it is a great introduction to his work if you are not familiar with it already. Peter is a master at asking questions that put things in perspective and help you see the big picture. Where most advice and resources for artists focus on the “outward” career tools (social networking, online tools, promo/publicity, etc.), Peter gets you to pause, take a deep breath, and really focus on the inner-work that most of us forget to do.

As with all of Peter’s books, I found myself underlining and highlighting text on every page (I printed it out, still love to hand-write notes and highlight!). At only 30 pages, it's a quick read, but one that can make a profound impact, so I would highly recommend it. And the best part? It’s FREE: Download Musician 2.0, 3.0, 4.0.

We also featured one of Peter's blog posts on Bandzoogle back in April, called "5 Essentials of Music Career Success", definitely check it out.
