How to "Make It" in the Music Industry

What if you could be mentored from day #1 by a musician who toured with stars of world-wide format? What if you had a clear path for your music career instead of second-guessing yourself every other step? Imagine you have all the important questions about musical career answered even before you ask them.

Chad Jeffers is a highly-respected guitarist who toured with major acts like Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood and Kenny Loggins. And it happens he teaches at Belmont University in Nashville, the nation's #1 music business school.

He was bothered so many times with questions about living the musician's dream that he wrote a book containing all his experience. In 80 pages, Chad shares valuable advice for beginners.

About the Author

You wouldn't think a musician who's played behind Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood and Kenny Loggins would have made any mistakes along the way, or second-guessed himself as he went along. But Chad Jeffers says that the road to success is paved with plenty of pitfalls, and knowing the ropes beforehand could have saved him a lot of time. That's why Chad, a highly-respected guitarist, dobro and pedal steel player with worldwide tours and years of experience under his belt, has authored 25 Notes for the Successful Musician, a self-help book packed with practical advice and guidelines for aspiring musicians - novice or seasoned. "It's basically everything I've learned in the last 15 years that I wish I would've known when I started out," Jeffers explains. "I've written the book the way it would be if I could have sat down with myself over drinks at the beginning of my own career and said, 'Tell me about everything you know now to help me with my music career!' That's how I've written it - very conversational, full of all the details and unwritten rules that I've learned the hard way." Jeffers has been working on this book almost since he began his professional career. He started keeping a journal and writing down his observations as he went along, documenting not only what he saw but also the advice others passed along to him. "There are things in my book that I've never found on the internet or in any other book," he explains. "I think people can actually save five years (or more) of their professional life with 25 Notes, because it gives an in-depth look at how the music business really works. It takes the gloves off - there's no sugar coating on anything. It's everything I've learned or been taught by the musicians I've worked with."
