My Interview with Seth Haines about a Career in Music

Andrew Hitz

Seth Haines of the great resource, The Musician's Guide to Hustling, was kind enough to interview me on my career to this point.  We discussed a variety of subjects including:

  • How I got the job with Boston Brass
  • How I proactively planned for my career after Boston Brass
  • Keys to freelancing
  • How Lance LaDuke and I came to create Pedal Note Media
  • All of my current projects including working with The Mockingbird Foundation
  • And a lot more!

Seth has a good thing going over there and it was great to chat with him about making a career in music.  You can check out the interview here.

Comfortable Is Not Good Enough

Andrew Hitz

Here is a thought-provoking article by Tony Plog about the realities of making it as a professional musician:

"But in music performance, good or comfortable is not good enough. Sometimes it’s not even close to being good enough. This may sound brutal, but in fact it’s brutally honest."

There are some hard truths in that brief blog post that all of us who "made it" in music were taught as some point along the line. Thank you for putting it into words, Tony!
