    Understanding Networking


    **** NETWORKING ****

    There's an old saying; "Out of sight, out of mind". Well, this is one of the truest things ever written and it so applies to the music business as well.

    If you want to work, you need to go out to the clubs, venues, jam sessions, whatever,.. and "BE SEEN"! You need to engage in conversation with potential employers and you need to be seen playing your drums so they know that you're qualified.

    Younger players still in school; if you want that specific chair or jazz band seat you have to
    work hard, yes. But also make sure that you're on a first name basis with the band leader, drum captain, and any private instructors or helpers, because they will often be assisting with the auditioning process.


    Top 5 Drummer Networking Mistakes:
    1. Not being prepared
    2. Not having business cards (pro players)
    3. Not letting them know in some way that you're qualified for the job
    4. Not acting professional enough
    5. Not following up on potential leads or opportunities
