TEM 1: Ranaan Meyer of Time for Three on Advice for Young Musicians, the Importance of a Strong Support Network and Founding Time for Three
For the first ever episode of The Entrepreneurial Musician I am joined by my dear friend Ranaan Meyer, bass player for Time For Three, teacher and founder of the Time For Three Foundation.
Ranaan touches on all aspects of Time for Three: how they started, how they got (created!) their big break, their business model, and where they are headed from here.
Ranaan also shares advice for young musicians trying to make a name for themselves, discusses the importance of his support network, and shares the three words he writes in block letters every single day at the top of his To-Do list.
He also discusses the time early in their careers that he and Zach DePue (his colleague in Time for Three) were playing with the Philadelphia Orchestra at the Mann Center and the power went out right before the concert was due to start. No one could see their music. He tells about how the two of them seized a huge opportunity that night that helped propel them and the group to stardom in the music business.
He also talks all about his various other ventures including a non-profit he runs, two bass camps he operates and his work as a soloist.
