Welcome to the MusicPreneur.Com podcast, where we provide the tools and resources to help the MusicPreneur achieve Financial, Artistic, Location and Time Freedom!

Today's episode is a bit of an experiment. I'm publishing 3 separate interviews into one episode.


jimThe first is with composer Jim Stephenson, who discusses a bit of a dilemma he had when the director of a youth orchestra made an unusual request.

In our chat, we discuss how to be savvy using internet tools, specifically Instagram to grow your audience. I also got to mention my Cornet Revolution side project 🙂




seth hanesLast but not least, I feature Seth Hanes, author of "Break Into the Scene." This week marks the one year anniversary of the book being published. I wanted to bring him back to the podcast to talk about the book, as well as some success stories people have had using the principles he teaches in it!
