Success Beyond The Score

Thank you so much for checking out my Podcast 'Success Beyond The Score'.  I started this to help those who ask me how to build their music career.  When I was 39 I decided it was time to give my music one last push.  3 years after I made the step.  Today I'm proud to say I did transition my music hobby into a full time music business with accolades and achievements and this Podcast is to help you with your journey.

Thank you so much for joining me for the second part of my interview with Dan Whitehouse, an award-winning composer, multi-instrumentalist and songwriter who has an outstanding career spanning twenty years of touring, teaching and composing.

Today, we will explore the impact of COVID-19 on Dan's life and career after lockdown made a visit to Japan become an almost two years stay. We will talk about some pros and cons of the safety measures around the pandemic and exchange tips to stay creative, active and healthy in times of crisis. Dan will highlight some career highs and lows, and to wrap everything up, he will share some key aspects to keep in mind in order to become a professional musician. Due to the circumstances, this interview was recorded through Zoom, reason why you might perceive a slight change of audio quality between the introduction and the show. The quality of the content, however, remains A+.
