The purpose of this book isn't to teach you how to sing, but rather to apply your existing vocal skills toward a structured career in a "wild and woolly" business. In this book, Wayland Pickard discusses many topics, such as: - how to get bookings, create your own band, work with an arranger in designing custom charts, communicate with musicians on stage in their vocabulary, move past the technology of singing, find your own individual style, write Do-it-yourself charts, find your key to a song, be your own conductor, be your own personal manager, create no-rehearsal arrangements, find the best performance material, communicate with your audience, stage your own show, master efficient rehearsal technique, create your own demo package, and, in general, discover the reasons why you are NOT working (in this industry).
