By Zoro with Amy Hammond Hagberg
Percussion - Miscellaneous Educational Books and Manuals
The Big Gig is much more than just an intriguing and comprehensive insider's guide to breaking into the music industry as an independent musician. Compelling and thought-provoking, it is an excellent resource for leadership training, networking techniques, and personal development. The Big Gig is the first book that describes the inner workings of the highly competitive music industry as seen through the eyes of a world-renowned and highly successful musician. The Big Gig provides a template for success by covering the vocational, personal, and spiritual aspects of a musician's life. The Big Gig is much more than educational. It is inspirational, motivational, and life-changing.
"Whether you aspire to tour with a rock band, play jazz in nightclubs, work in the studios, or perform with a symphony orchestra, there is information in this book that will help prepare you to make a living as a musician."

"Bottom Line: I highly recommend this book and I only wish that I had it when I started out in the music business! Whether you are a musician who specializes in drums or any instrument, you need this book. Without it, you'll waste years of your life figuring out all of the things that Z has already neatly laid out for you."- Tigerbill.com
