Record Labels, Music Publishers, Music Supervisors, Songwriters, Composers & Artists Network at TAXI’s ConventionSaturday, November 14th, 2009
Whether you were there to learn more about getting a record deal, placing your music in films and TV shows, or composing for video games, it was all there for the taking at TAXI’s Road Rally last weekend. What did our members think of it?
From our forum:
There is no way I could possibly ever put into words just how much this Rally, my 2nd one, meant to me. Saying “Thank You” just doesn’t seem to be enough. I’m still humbled and honored to have been given the Inspiration Award. It’s going to get a prominent placement in my studio for sure! My wife was just as excited about it as I was.
For anyone who’s reading this and wasn’t able to make it to the Rally yet, let me encourage, if you’re serious about your musical career, whether it be an artist or film & tv composer, stop reading this right now and start putting a plan together as to how you can make it to next year’s Rally. You’ve got nearly a year left to save up the money for the airfare and hotel. Remember, the event itself is FREE. I PROMISE you, if you’re serious about your career and you’re willing to invest the time & money it takes to be successful, then there is no better investment you can make as far as I’m concerned than to attend the Road Rally.
I don’t get paid to say that, nor do I need to get paid to say it. TAXI works and the Road Rally is a HUGE part of the picture. I’ll say it again, if you’re serious about your career, and I mean TRULY serious, then do what you have to do to make it next year. The amount of information you can learn, the connections you can make, and the opportunities you will have to GIVE BACK are truly priceless.
