“GOLD DUST FOR COVER BANDS” Online course launched on the Udemy platform;
Are you a musician in a band, or working towards being one?
Are you wondering how you can turn all that hard work into hard cash?
If you’re good enough to play in public, you’re good enough to be PAID to play in public.
Our comprehensive online course will teach you everything you need to know so as to maximise your band’s earning potential. Bob Spry (the voice of the Global Drum Network podcast) will guide you all the way from recruiting your first bandmates (if that’s what you need) to performing professionally, with a busy and well-organised career. Along the way, you’ll find upbeat, engaging lectures on all the subjects you would expect, plus a lot more besides. There is a huge amount of material here, but we’ve deliberately kept everything as light and easily-absorbed as possible. We’ve also used some of our favourites anecdotes and ‘Tales from the Road’ to help put things in perspective for you,
and hopefully raise a smile.
Here’s a snapshot of some of the topics you’ll be covering on the course;
•Getting it all off the ground, from scratch.
•Addressing the age-old question; Old band or new?
•Auditions, and how to make them work for you ( from both sides of the room ).
