Product description

Review

"This book can serve as an excellent resource for faculty who advise undergraduate music students coming to the end of their time in college as well as for arts management faculty who have musician entrepreneurs among their student body. Further, the book is a valuable call from the field, reminding arts administrators and arts administration educators about the current state of the artistic job market and how artists might be supported by our programs, institutions of higher learning, and arts organizations." --The Journal of Arts Management, Law, and Society "Starting with her love of music and years of experience in both academia and the real world, Angela Myles Beeching has written a book full of inspiring yet practical lessons for performing musicians--a kind of workbook for a life in music." --Charlotte Schroeder, President, Colbert Artists Management "Beyond Talent is like the ultimate Swiss army knife for the young musician. Packed with savvy insights, sage advice, practical ideas and inspiring examples, this omprehensive guide delivers the tools to navigate a successful path in music no matter where it might lead." --Phillip Ying, Violist, Ying Quartet; Associate Professor, Eastman School of Music, University of Rochester; former President, Chamber Music America "Beyond Talent is a wonderfully helpful book for the professional future of any young musician. Beeching writes clearly and comprehensively. Her book is a must for the library of any professional musician." --Robert Freeman, Dean, College of Fine Arts, the University of Texas at Austin "Authoritative, informative and comprehensive books about the 'classical' music industry are rare and to be prized when they appear. [This] is just such a book. And is consequently to be valued...The tone, manner of delivery, layout, comprehensiveness, accuracy, appropriateness, common sense, wisdom and up-to-date nature of Beyond Talent: Creating a Successful Career in Music, not to mention its very reasonable price, make this as near definitive a winner as there is." --Classical.net "Beyond Talent provides a much-needed update and will undoubtedly become the new classic in years to come. Beeching's book is extremely helpful, comprehensive, generous, and insightful. I give it my top four-reed rating, all of them suitable for a Carnegie Hall recital." --Michèle Gingras, The Clarinet "Convenient to use as a textbook for a one-semester course on career planning...Beyond Talent fills a gaping hole, as it provides excellent material that is difficult to find in other sources...This new edition of Beyond Talent is highly recommended for all libraries that support classical and jazz studies." --Canadian Association of Music Libraries Review
