Musician’s Success Formula

​Boost your bookings, your brand, and your bank account!​​​​

You’ve got talent.  But do you know how to make a decent income doing what you love? I’ve been booking, promoting, and managing bands and solo artists for the past 16 years and I mentor them as well. I’m also a percussionist, drum teacher, and therapeutic drumming facilitator.

I’m a Musician on a Mission: I not only book and groom bands but I watch their backs so they don’t get ripped off!

There are loads of people out there hawking programs for musicians. None of them have been in the trenches like I have, helping over 900 hundreds of bands and solo artists get gigs, get paid, grow their fan bases, and get bigger opportunities. The people that I work with stick with me because they trust me. I’ve got their best interests at heart. I have a wealth of experience and I have a lot of contacts!

I can’t work with everyone though, so I created a video training course called The Musicians’ Success Formula to help you navigate your music career and move forward FAST!

This 6-week program is jam-packed with loads of valuable content, plus you get bonuses AND added support! You can’t get that from a book or from doing random web searches! Plus, will you really read all that stuff – and apply it? You’ll not only gain valuable training but you’ll be helping out my music ministry.

Every program purchased will help me provide my drum therapy program to those who can’t afford it.  Yes, you read that correctly! It’s a win/win!

This program will help you:  

  • Learn what booking agents, labels, and venues are looking for.
  • Learn how to market and brand yourself effectively
  • Learn how to negotiate better so you get paid more at every gig.
  • Create multiple streams of income
  • Gain confidence and a strong mindset for success
  • Learn to focus, manage your time better – and hit your goals!
  • Learn how to present yourself more professionally so you’ll get better gigs!
  • Learn tips to help you maintain momentum and have staying power!

How I started

What started out with booking and managing talented teen bands turned into a company through which I have booked over 900 bands and many solo artists. In the past 16 years, I have organized, booked, and managed hundreds of shows and large concerts that have launched many music careers. I learned that most serious musicians have major skills but no one to represent them whom they can truly trust. I applied my many years of sales and marketing experience, my MBA, and my passion for music and built a highly successful entertainment business called Next Stage Entertainment, which is now part of Rock the Next Stage.

In addition to being a best-selling author, I’m the host of  the weekly podcast Rock the Next Stage with Dori Staehle, which features musicians, singers, and music industry experts.
