"The title of this book gives just a glimpse of the breadth of information that is actually included. Author Angela Myles Beeching is director of the Career Services Center at the New England Conservatory, and it is clear that she draws from her personal experience advising hundreds of musicians in
all aspects of their careers. Although the book is written primarily for musicians aspiring for full-time professional performing careers, the chapters include practical tips and guidelines that can also be applied to music teachers, composers, and freelancers...This book could easily be used as a
textbook for a group of musicians to discuss, ponder, and creatively experiment with promoting their own music making and creating their own "career paths."--American Music Teacher
