Book Offers Tips on Negotiating the Music Business

Business Basics for Musicians: The Complete Handbook from Start to SuccessThere’s more to being a musician than making music. For many, the music making can be the easiest part of establishing a career.

Bobby Borg, onetime drummer for Warrant and a teacher of music business classes at Musician’s Institute and UCLA Extension, has written Business Basics for Musicians: The Complete Handbook from Start to Success to help fellow musicians negotiate the music business.

The book is written for the layperson, in a conversational tone. It covers five basic areas: Career Execution, Business Relationships, Pro Teams, Deals and Dollars, and Future Predictions. Copyright issues, going totally DIY, merchandising, record deals — they’re all in there.

The 312-page book, published in Hal Leonard Corp.’s Music Pro Guides series is available in paperback and Kindle.
