Sorry to burst your bubble but you thought wrong. Business is a part of life and a part of drumming as well.

Check out some of the information, articles and licks to valuable resources we're offering. Come back often as we continue to update this page.
There's an old saying that goes, "Out of sight, out of mind". It means that if people can't see you, they usually don't think of you. Did you ever wonder why some drummers work more than others? It isn't always because they're the better players. Sometimes you'll see just average drummers playing a heck of a lot! It's probably because they understand marketing. It's about getting out there and getting seen. Know how to promote yourself by using tried and tested marketing techniques.
You need to study business concepts in some form or fashion. You could buy some books, watch some videos online or take basic classes in busienss at your local community college or trade school. Learn about supply and demand, projection, bookkeeping, organization and managment. All of this will come in handy and give you a competitive edge over the years. Some of the most successful muscians are the most business savvy.
