CAREER COUNSELING FOR ARTISTS

 

Let me help you realize where you are in your musical development. Only then will it become apparent what your next step as an artist should be. If you are trying to get your act together, let me help you with finding your invaluable TEAM PLAYERS. When is it time to hire the PR firm, the manager, the lawyer, the road manager, the image consultant? Many times, great talent never stands a chance because the artist tries to do all of these jobs. Let me help you understand the NEXT LEVEL for you and your music. Call me at 615.294.3371, or email me at ronbrowning@mac.com for info.

PERFORMANCE ASSESSMENTS FOR ARTISTS

 

Written assessments about the quality of vocal technique and stage performance, used by a singer on the gig, are very helpful for organizations investing large sums of money into an act. Whether you are representing a record label, a publisher, or an entertainment agency, you will want to know that what you are about to invest in is solid. Although some singers can make a flashy first appearance, their vocal technique will sometimes land them in vocal rehabilitation while the show is put on hold. An assessment might point out early that the artist could use a little more coaching or toughening up in the voice department before adventuring out, night after night, on tour to promote their newly released CD. Or, maybe the voice is in tip top shape, but the act goes no where. There is no charisma happening on stage! There is NO SHOW to be seen! The artist just stands there! This artist needs performance coaching. As someone investing in musical acts, you will want to know what you are buying! If the act is in Nashville, TN, my fees are $250 per hour to come to your show, take notes, and then send the document to your company. Email me at ronbrowning@mac.com for more details. Or call me at 615.294-3371.

PHONE LESSONS

 

Phone lessons are easy to do. They are especially handy for the artist on tour. Phone is also great for artist counseling, and general warm-ups for those headed into the recording studio. Phone is an easy way to check in for singer's battling vocal abuse and are on a special workout program for better vocal health. Email me at ronbrowning@mac.com for more info. Or call me at 615.294.3371.

SKYPE LESSONS

 

Skype makes it easy to have a face to face lesson with me, even if you live on the other side of the globe. Send me an email inquiring about Skype lessons. I'll send you information and we can set a date for a voice lesson. Email me at ronbrowning@mac.com. Or call me at 615.294.3371. Download the free version of Skype at www.skype.com. Be sure you have a microphone and a cam plugged into your computer. It's like being here in my studio! You'll be able to record your lesson directly to your hard drive and burn it later to a CD. Or save it as a wave file (via Garage Band or another digital recorder) and put it on your iPod. Skype is great for singers getting ready to do a music video or making a TV appearance.
