While it's hard to guarantee success in any area of the music industry, as an artist hoping to break into Broadway you can build a foundation for yourself which will increase the likelihood of your being able to land a spot as professional Broadway musician. Here we at three key components.
In this recent post to MusicThinkTank, Cherie Nelson outlines three keys to breaking into the industry as a Broadway musician.
"Building a network within the industry is crucial to gaining access to the right opportunities. Follow the scene and get to know who’s who in the industry. Attend performances of important conductors and musicians, and ask musicians if you can sit as a guest in the pit and follow the book as they play. Use live events, phone calls and email to reach out to people in the industry."
