Had to Say About the Music Business Complete™

"I wish these courses were available, along with his book, when I was starting out in the music world. I wouldn't have gotten into the jams that I encountered along the way. These courses are excellent, stylish, keep your interest and hungry to learn more. Everyone needs the education that these courses provide prior to entering the biz on all accounts. Terrific, excellent, blockbuster material."

How Learning the Business Allowed Me to
Build a Full-time Music Career...

I've been lucky enough to experience so many facets of the Music Business through my 50 years in the Music Industry - and I love it all. Like so many others my career began on the creative side as a musician, singer and songwriter, as well as an arranger and producer. My first Professional break came at age 16 but...

...not long after that I found out a song I had co-written for another artist was coming out on a Major Label ...

And My Name Was Not On It!

I knew right then that I needed to learn the Business and Legal Sides of the Industry as well if I wanted to build a sustainable career.

Fortunately, I was able to align myself with a couple of major "Hit Record Producers", Jimmy Ienner (3 Dog Night, The Raspberries, Eric Carmen, etc) and Gene McDaniels (Roberta Flack, Gladys Knight, etc). I also picked up everything I could from my music business surroundings, working in and around Studios, Publishing, Management and Recording Companies.

How I Discovered the Joy of Sharing
My Music Business Knowledge...

By the early 80s many frustrated creative and business oriented individuals and companies started coming to me for advice regarding their careers. I soon found myself guiding many people's careers for many years to come. There's no better feeling in the world than seeing the smile on someone's face, knowing that I helped them advance in the Industry they once only could dream about.

In 1991 I was asked to develop and teach the "Artist Management", "Songwriting/Music Publishing", and "Entertainment Law" Courses at the Art Institute of Philadelphia. That's when it hit me that teaching and helping others was just as important to me as making music. I sincerely enjoyed showing people how to:
