This past May, Justin Essenpreis (from Reviews/Resist) and I hosted a three-part music seminar called The School of Hard Rocks. We did this in hopes to educate bands, and promote smart decision making.
We covered topics ranging from touring, booking shows, recording, promoting gigs, as well as broader issues like the state of the music industry itself.
The website has a ton of great resources for your band including places to get merch designed and printed, where to promote your band, and links to other great resources. It also has audio recordings from our seminar that you can download and listen to, should that interest you!
I highly recommend checking it out if you’re in a band, and hopefully you’ll be able to avoid some of the pitfalls that we had found during our time as young musicians.
