About the Book
New Music Strategies has brought together some of the most forward-thinking musicians and industry people to each contribute 360 words outlining the best advice they can give to young musicians and new music industry workers. The advice they themselves would want to hear if they were just getting started in music now.
Rock star or professor, DJ or classical violinist, record label exec or community music worker - here's a group of people who have been where you’re at in one way or another, they know a bit about what lies ahead, and they have useful knowledge to share.
The book will grow over time as more advice from musicians and music business professionals from around the world are collated and added to the project. We're working towards 360 contributions.
360 articles of 360 words for $3.60 (more if you wish). That's our 360 Deal.
All proceeds from this book go directly to Music Basti – a youth-run charity based in New Delhi that brings music workshops to children affected by extreme poverty.
