Concert Career Coaching


Freelance Classical Musicians

5 steps freelance classical musicians use to earn six figures, even if they don’t have a massive audience yet

Here’s a bold statement: Classical musicians don’t need to take multiple jobs as a teacher, administrator, corporate junkie or food server, running from one random gig to another, just to pay the bills.

My clients jump from doing “just fine” in a variety of jobs to five-figure months as a confident performer.

I get it - everyone says musicians need to blast themselves all over social media, and I’ve tried it myself, but that time should actually be spent performing, not posing for photos and writing blog posts, Tweets and stories.

There is a proven five-step process to booking high paying gigs without relying on agents, managers, fixers, and - even worse - saying “yes” to every single gig that comes along.

My clients grow a loyal audience who WANT to come back for more, no matter where they live or how much they charge them. Plus, they only play the music they want to play and practice.

To learn how they do this, watch my free masterclass and I’ll share the exact blueprint they use.

Why we help you:

  • Do you worry about financial stability?
  • Do auditions frighten you a little?
  • Do you worry someone else might get your gigs?
  • Do you need more work over the Summer months?
  • Has a player, a fixer, or a venue ever let you down?
  • Do you feel stuck running from one poorly paid gig to another, taking on teaching and other work to make sure your bills get paid?

What we help you with:

  • How to turn your classical music performances into a six figure income, even if that sounds ridiculously out of reach right now.
  • How to build a fan club: Perform the exact music you want, for the people you want, who pay what you want.
  • How to decide which gigs pay a premium rate. Stop running from one low-paying gig to another and teaching, just to pay the bills… and move to $10,000 a month as quickly as possible.
  • How to leverage your repertoire so you don’t get bored but you also don’t lose days and days practicing music you don’t like.
  • How to do ALL this without blogging, tweeting, SEO, making videos, and all that other “Marketing Guru” stuff you read about online that you really don’t want to do.

"Really take to heart what Conductor.StephenPBrown is sharing with you. Really work to follow his advice. It's scary and hard work doing what he's advising. But its necessary and so rewarding."
Candace Lark-Masucci 

What you get out of it:

  • You will have complete control over where you perform, who with, who for, and for how much.
  • You’ll be able to fill concert halls with your own fans because they know you as THE MASTER MUSICIAN, and any performance you are in they KNOW is going to be great.
  • You’ll accidentally become a celebrity because you are the local expert, the authority who brings the light of live classical music into people’s lives.
  • You’ll realize that your income does not depend on what others can afford or are willing to pay, but on your own ability to raise cash instantly, whenever you need it.
  • You’ll earn more while working much less - think of what you would do with all that extra time! Go sailing, visit far-away cultures, cruise as a luxury passenger, brew your own beer, run for public office, build your own cabin...?
  • AND, all the time you’ll be rediscovering and reveling in the JOY that music gave you when you first started performing.

Who this is for:

Any freelance classical musician who wants to perform for more people on a deeper level for more money and less stress.
