I’ve got three awesome links for you guys to check out.
First is a true game changer. Pensado’s Place is a web show featuring platinum mix engineer and his engineer Herb Trawick interviewing some of the greatest engineers, producers, songwriters, and music industry leaders in an hour long web show. Nearly 100 shows deep, there is plenty of knowledge to improve your sonics!
I’m a BIG reader. This is part 1 in a series on books that I humbly believe should be required reading for Music Biz Wiz Kids.
Let’s be honest, the music industry is changing at an ever increasing faster and faster rate with new services, legal aspects, power players, artists, bands, labels, movements, and trendsetters coming and going every week. So for the most up to date news, it’s best to keep an eye on sites like HypeBot and MusicThinkTank. However, a good great book will pack information and wisdom by the pound! If you are not a reader or do not consider yourself a reader, you are doing yourself a serious discredit. So start reading!
Here is a reading list of books that will make you a true Music Biz Wiz Kid.
First of all, HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM MBWK!I want to thank everyonethat has visited the site in 2012 and anyone in the future who reads this for making this site what it is. 2013 will many new projects from the MusicBizWizKids family and new exclusive content… We have very big plans to turn this site into THE resource for young people interested in a career in the Music Biz!

Rick Goetz, of MusicThinkTank and MusicianCoaching, writes a truly inspired and informative article that I had to share with my fellow Wiz Kids! In the article, he talks about the misconception about what it truly takes to be successful (perpetuated by media like “Behind The Music.” In short, it takes grit (patience, persistence), solid business knowledge, marketing your personal brand, setting goals, building a community, and networking.
So Without Further ado here is a link Mr. Goetz’s article.
