So...I've been drummin a good long while and as all but a lucky few of us come to realize, I'm more than liley not going to "make it". I've decided to pursue other avenues to do my best making a living by doing what I love. I know the avenues to being a professional drummer, besides being in a signed band, (ie: teaching, session work, etc) but really have no idea how to get started. First off I know I want to take some lessons myself to ensure that I have a good grasp of rudiments and reading so that I can pass that on and I know that its going to take a long time to pick up students and what not but other than that I really dont know how to begin. Should I take some business classes? Accounting classes? I dont know really what a self employed person needs to know. Any advice from those of you that are already making a living by playing drums will be much appreciated.
