Music Business Education Program for Ilembe Region

It all seems so easy, right: you record a couple of songs, play some gigs, sell CD’s, get your face on TV, become famous and the bucks and groupies come rolling in? That’s what you see around you right? Well, yes – but what you don’t get to see is what goes on behind the scenes: the many years of hard work and all the people and business involved. Talent alone is not enough and fame doesn’t always get you rich. So how do you become a successful musician?
