I have thought long and hard about what I want to complete in my music career journey over the last few months. Everything that I want to achieve or start to achieve to help me is something that has kept me up at night. Extremely frustrating when I want to sleep.
So… in order for me to successfully be able to complete each of these goals I need to be able to plan them. The goals I want to achieve are
- Complete the Tom Hess Music Careers Mentoring Program
- Enter songwriting competitions – The ones I have in mind are the Australian Songwriting Contest, The Unsigned Only Songwriting Competition, The International Songwriting Competition and the John Lennon Songwriting Competition.
- Complete the Advanced Diploma of Music Business
- Start a music reference library – This goal will need to have at least 100 books for me to deem it having some success.
- Complete AMEB Theory of Music Written Exams
- Complete AMEB Level 1 Flute Exams
- Go to the WAM Conference
- Go to the Electronic Music Conference
- Start a publicity/ management company
