THE IMPORTANCE OF MINDSET, RESILIENCE AND SERVICE AS A PROFESSIONAL MUSICIAN WITH PIANIST JONNY MAY (Season 3 Episode 7)
Full disclosure: we went into this interview with pianist Jonny May thinking we’d be chatting about tactics. (You know, the “how” behind Jonny’s incredibly successful marketing strategy.)
Between starting his career as the youngest Disneyland pianist ever at age 18, creating new gig opportunities that led to a restaurant owner purchasing a grand piano just for him to come play, and launching his online teaching site, www.pianowithjonny.com, there is clearly much to learn from this classically-trained, ragtime-loving pianist!
But instead of talking tactics, we dug into all things mindset, resilience and service behind what it takes to build a successful career as a musician.
And here’s why: without this foundational mindset and service-based approach to business, nothing else matters.
Jonny was 110% speaking our language when it comes to having the courage to step out there and create your own opportunities as a musician, and we seriously loved every minute of this inspirational and example-filled conversation!
One of our favorite quotes from Jonny is that as musicians, we’re essentially “helping people help people.”
That’s the power of music! And with all the craziness that goes on in this 21st century world of ours, we are truly blessed to be able to give back through what we offer the world as teachers and performers.
Yes, there are absolutely certain strategies and marketing tactics that will help you achieve your goals faster and more efficiently. But it’s that heart of serving others that helps you make an impact, which in turn will fuel the success of your marketing efforts and your career. It’s a beautiful thing!
In case you missed the Facebook Live conversation, you can catch the video replay over on The Marketed Musician Facebook page or tune in to hear the audio version on this week’s podcast.
Either way, we hope you’ll set aside about 35 minutes to enjoy this inspirational conversation!
TAKE THE QUIZ!
Raise your hand if you hear the word “marketing” and your eyes begin to glaze over…
We totally get it. (Musicians are usually taught to make music, not market their music.)
But here’s the truth: Knowing what stage of marketing you are in will help you market yourself confidently.
So whether you’re just starting out or you’re heavily involved as a musical entrepreneur, this quiz is designed to tell you:
