Smart music producers and musicians focus on their craft and make their own luck...
My name is Marius van Dyk and I've created this website to share with you ideas, strategies, techniques and resources you can use to develop your music and also your business as an independent musician and producer.
Now, we know the career path we choose to follow is a tough one to walk because it requires a ton of practice, patience, determination and persistence.
We also don't, at least not when we start out, have the luxury of others taking care of the business side of music while we focus only on our craft. So, it's a tough game. Still, what's life for?
OK. So, it's definitely not a path for everyone! You have to take full responsibility for your own success and follow through with conscious actions to create your music and build the business and career you want.
Great musicians and music producers are creative and have a professional work ethic and love for music. This is common sense; the more you work at something the better you get. Your luck also increases the more you work and improve your craft.
In other words, when you get better at what you do, opportunities to expand your art and business will increase. So, focus on your music, and stay focused no matter what!
Why this website?
This website is a way to connect with and help other musicians and producers who want to take action to create the music-business-life they envision.
You'll find all the information on this site tailored to the needs and wants of independent music producers and musicians who want to improve their music and businesses.
Music producers and musicians now need to move beyond old paradigms of the archaic pre-Web music business game and start to use the ability we now have to advance our music and business in any way we can.
Yes, the Web is still a baby! The nature of the music business has changed and keeps changing since the arrival of the Web. You can't predict the future even a few years from now at this rate of change.
You can however choose to learn what you need to know about this new technology and how you can use it, and then take definite actions to create the music-business-life you want.
