Hal Leonard Minding Your Business

If there is anything a creative person tends to dislike more than talking about money, it’s talking about taxes. But paying attention to the business side of your art is important, and author and practicing CPA, Martin Kamenski, takes you by the hand and leads you through the tangled web of the IRS.

This book will end your fear of taxes and will help you lead the life you crave as a creative professional. The language is easy to understand for even the most number-illiterate. Minding Your Business provides guidance about when to treat yourself as a business, including all important considerations before incorporating and shattering some of the most prevalent (and costly) myths existing in the artistic community.

Minding Your Business is suitable for any actor, writer, musician, dancer, photographer, director, model, visual artist, band, or production company. The author’s Chicago-based practice serves clients nationwide and offers artists and creative professionals the explanations they need. Kamenski has taken the very fine-tuned method of explaining taxes that made his practice successful and condensed it in a book that will pay for itself tenfold. The playing field is about to be leveled. Prepare to feel in control of your financial future!

The book is available to purchase for $19.99 USD.

While artist relations has its perks, it’s definitely not a ‘walk in the park.’ There’s no such thing as a typical day.”

Shure Artist Relations manages the relationships between musical artists and bands and the Company, providing product and technical support and assisting their front of house, monitor, and studio engineers as needed. Fans around the world enjoy music created by Shure artists such as Cage the Elephant, Foster the People, Jason Mraz, Matt & Kim, Mos Def, The Band Perry, The Black Keys, and Toby Keith, among others.

During the summer, the “Get the Gig” intern’s responsibilities may include providing support for social media initiatives, helping to manage Shure artist endorsers, assisting in the evaluation of potential endorsers, working with the Company to negotiate endorsement contracts, and coordinating Shure-sponsored events, including clinics and trade shows.

College juniors, seniors, and recent graduates from the class of 2012, who reside in the U.S., are eligible to enter and take part in up to three rounds of competition to demonstrate why they deserve to be the next Shure Artist Relations intern.

Hal Leonard Books has announced it is now shipping Welcome to the Jungle by Jim Klein, a guide for freelancers who want to succeed in the music and audio industries.

Jim Klein Welcome to the Jungle

Thousands of people try to make a living as musicians and audio professionals. Most of them fail, and not because they lack talent or the will to succeed. They fail because no matter how much training they’ve received or how hard they’ve practiced, they don’t know how to face the challenges that await them in the “real world.” No matter how much technical or musical skill aspirants may have acquired, there is always a huge gap in their understanding of how that world works.

Do they understand how to behave in a professional environment? When to talk and when to listen? What about developing a personal work ethic, a support system, and a reasonable set of immediate and future plans to make goals into realities? In his dual role as a successful music and audio freelancer of over 30 years and tenured college professor, Jim Klein has not only the knowledge of what it takes to succeed as a freelancer in the competitive fields of music and audio, but also the understanding of exactly what the new aspirant needs to know to take on that world.

Klein has crafted his advice into a book that is detailed, complete, and easy to understand. Welcome to the Jungle includes chapters on setting goals, networking, building a portfolio, time management, personal and professional finances, and dealing with the ups and downs of the freelance career. The book also includes interviews with successful music and audio freelancers, such as legendary producer Howard Benson (Kelly Clarkson, Santana, Daughtry), producer/engineer Kevin Killen (Peter Gabriel, U2, Elvis Costello), bassist Julie Slick, and others.

The book is available to purchase for $24.99 USD.
