concentration, and reduce nervousness, allowing them to reach
new levels of performing excellence and musical artistry.
Reader Comments: Inner Game This book was really good
in helping me overcome nervousness during auditions and helping

This guide, from the editors of "Songwriter's Market", has all
the answers for the novice. Tips are given on how to make contacts
in the music industry, with fine arts organizations, and in the
theater world. Music contests will also boost visibility for the
rookie, so the basics are given on finding and participating in
legitimate contests. Probably most helpful of all is the information
on record-keeping, so a songwriter can keep track of who to contact
and who has already been approached.

LITTLE LABELS--BIG SOUND: SMALL RECORD COMPANIES AND THE
RISE OF AMERICAN MUSIC
Our Price: $24.95
From the 1920s through the 1960s, scores of small, independent
record companies nurtured distinctly American music: jazz, blues,
gospel, country, rhythm and blues, and the 1950s off-spring of
R&B, rock 'n' roll. Operated by families or individuals, often
on the fringe of mainstream culture, these labels fostered America's
musical voice by discovering original artists who would become
giants of popular culture.
