A book every aspiring musician should read! 25. Januar 2010
Von John E. Horne - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The title sounds a little too good to be true doesn't it? Normally, it would be easy to discount a book with a title like this, but knowing that Douglas Niedt was the author I was excited to read it and confident that it would offer substantive information that musicians could use in their careers.

The first thing to understand is what this book is not. Niedt does not promise to make you a better guitarist, a famous musician, or a even millionaire (one who has a net worth of one million dollars or more) in his book. What he will do is make you think long and hard about whether you wish make the commitment to become an entrepreneurial musician, and offer lots of good advice on how to begin and grow your business so that you can make a million dollars or more over the course of your career.

Niedt covers a lot of ground, but most of the book can be divided two distinct concepts: entrepreneurial thinking and understanding common business practices. These two concepts are seamlessly woven together throughout with the earlier chapters generally discussing entrepreneurial thinking and later chapters relating more specific information about business practices that apply to musicians.

Throughout the book, the author reflects on his own life as a student, performer, teacher, and businessperson. He also incorporates many anecdotes that illustrate typical challenges that have been overcome successfully by famous musicians and businesspeople throughout history.

"Do you really want to do this? Do you have what it takes?" asks an early chapter. A short survey will help young people who may have big dreams but no realistic idea of what it means to be a musician to put things into perspective. After each survey question, there are reality checks that will encourage the reader to reflect on their attitudes and expectations about a career in music and whether or not they possess the drive and self-discipline to succeed. I find that Niedt strikes just the right balance here. He is careful not to discourage the reader but is very realistic about the sacrifices that must be made in order to make a living playing music.

The first two sections of the book include several essays on topics such as: keeping a positive attitude, setting goals, evaluating oneself, choosing an educational path, how to get along with other people, and more. These chapters are definitely motivational, but also make good business sense for anyone who wants to be self-employed and stay optimistic in the face of adversity. This section also includes two of my favorite chapters: "Talent is Not the Answer" and "You're a Failure - Congratulations!"

As the book proceeds, more in-depth information about what it takes to be a self-employed musician is explored. Advice is given on virtually all aspects of setting up a business as a sole proprietorship or LLC, recording your own CDs, building a website that will help you sell your music, knowing what to charge for shipping, maintaining a database, understanding tax laws and much more. The chapter on maintaining a database was particularly a good one for me as I am always trying to find a better way to organize my records of students and business contacts electronically.

Most of the business information passed on in the book I already know. I've learned it along the way from colleagues, teachers, tax and financial advisers, and friends. Some things I found out through my own research. Almost all of it was learned after college as I struggled to establish myself as a teacher and musician. I can only imagine how much easier my path may have been with a book like this one to guide me.

Douglas Niedt has written a book that every young person aspiring to a career in music should read. I will definitely be recommending it to many of my students and their parents. It paints a very clear and realistic picture of what the career of a professional musician looks like. If you are starting a career in music or know someone who is, this is required reading.

Finally, if you are not a guitarist, you'll still want to buy the book. Doug may be targeting guitarists with his title, but the book is not about playing the guitar, it's about being an entrepreneurial musician. All of the information inside is equally applicable to pianists, saxophonists, trombonists, etc. I'm guessing it will take a trombonist a little longer to reach the million-dollar mark, but that's another story.

Good Advice and a Great Read. 26. Mai 2010
Von Dale R. Larsen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
The best book on the market about making it in the music or entertainment business is Doug Niedt's "How to Make a Million Dollars Playing the Guitar."

Why do I say that? First of all Mr Niedt is one of the world's greatest guitar players, he has been there and done that; just check out his concert, recording or teaching background. Second, Mr. Niedt is from Missouri (the 'show me' state). Like Harry Truman, Doug tells it like it is.

Doug gives you 9 questions to answer, for example, "I can't imagine myself doing anything else." Doug then runs you through how to set up goals, have the right attitude, keeping your finances in check and many more lessons. By the time you are finished with the book, you will have a guideline for success.

One of the striking things I learned when reading the book is that talent does not count that much. Doug explains that there are a lot of famous entertainers who do not have much talent, but they do have an audience which is very important!

Doug's book also has chapters on selling your own CDs, good business procedures, creating a web site etc. Bravo Doug, I recommend this book without equal or qualification.

Straight forward facts 9. Januar 2010
Von John A. Svoboda - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I enjoyed the book! It has the straight forward approach that keeps a reader turning pages and asking inner questions that need to be asked.
The principles presented strongly apply to any realm of personal success; which many of us need reminding.
Doug has lived every principle presented and is walking/talking proof of the ideas explored.
Thanks for your generosity and contributions to helping others!

Thank You Douglas 24. Januar 2010
Von kevin sweet - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Having played guitar for more than half of my life, this book is extremely personal. It simply felt good to read it! An A-Z of self empowerment, Douglas cuts through the mental clutter and beautifully describes the power of attitude. I will without a doubt, revisit the book regularly to have it kick my butt.
Motivational with little detail regarding methods of making money 28. April 2011
Von Kevin Zugschwert - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is a good read from a motivational stand point.
It's very positive and uplifting. However, any details
regarding the methods of making money in the current music
business are far and few between the quotes and strategies
of success directly lifted from 'Think And Grow Rich' by Napoleon
Hill. This book would be recommended for a guitarist who hasn't already
read Hills classic.Think and Grow Rich
