You can make a living with music.

For musicians, the struggle has always been real.

Ever since Europe began commercializing its music scene – you know, hosting concerts that you had to pay for at the door – musicians have been seeking ways to make a full-time living from their art. We find value in what we do because we know it’s good for the soul, benefits society, and these days we know that music has tangible therapeutic effects on the human body.

With the rise of technological advancements, many in the music industry have lost their careers because computers replace many of the tasks that humans once had to perform. However, for many musicians this simply means that the music industry is more rich and variable than ever before…

…which is great news for YOU!

I’m Paul Cassarly – a U.S. Marine Veteran, entrepreneur, and musician. I’ve been playing the trumpet and producing music since I was nine years old. I know for a fact that it’s possible to make a living with music because I’ve already done it.
