I'm officially at your service starting June 1, 2016. I wrote Make It to serve other musicians. I grew up around engineers and scientists, so helping other people solve their problems is in my blood. 

The service doesn't end at my book, however. I have a blog because I want to be an open book. Tell me what you want to know and I'll be all over it. 

Since a few people asked, in addition to publishing this excerpt from the Preface to Make It, I have made the complete Table of Contents available for you. Check it out:

About the Author     


If you're wondering what Actionable Steps are as you read, they are activities I ask the reader to perform that lead to a verifiable outcome. 

The whole book is structured so the reader can learn about a given topic, then implement what was discussed by taking action. Sometimes it involves exploring yourself and getting introspective, and in other cases it is all about going out into the world and interacting with other people.

Each Actionable Steps section is designed to show the reader that he or she is capable of much, much more than they realize.  

If you read the entire Table of Contents, I'm sure you want the rest of the book's pages.
