Of Interest to All Musicians!!!

Dear Musician Friends,

I have a new book on the market that is now available for shipping. It is called "The Musician's Guide to Brides: How to Make Money Playing Weddings". From the back cover, here is what is included:

"The Musician's Guide to Brides: How to Make Money Playing at Weddings" features:
• What It Takes to Play at Weddings
• Creating a Repertoire
• Equipment Needed
• How to Write a Performance Agreement
• Creating Promotional Materials
• Wedding Advertising and Internet Ideas
• Marketing Your Music by Exhibiting at Bridal Fairs
• How to Close a Sale When Your Customer is the Bride
• How to Work with the Mother of the Bride, the Wedding Coordinator, and Booking Agents
• Bridal Relations—How to Avoid Problems
• What To Do When the Unexpected Happens
• How To Work With Bridezillas (and some hair-raising, true stories!)

I interviewed event coordinators, booking agents, celebrants, and ceremony and reception site managers for their insight. They described what makes for a great musician and added their pet peeves. I also polled professional wedding musicians for hints about what works for them and what doesn't. You'll read their suggestions, success stories, and those unbelievable horror stories we'd all like to avoid.

You can order this book on,, and other website retailers. You can also order it from your local music store. The book is published by Hal Leonard books, and you can purchase it directly from their music warehouse, Music Dispatch, by calling (800)637-2852.

By the way, "The Musician's Guide to Brides" is written for the novice as well as the pro. Musicians who already play weddings may find some nuggets of information that might help them, too.

I'm looking forward to any feedback you have about it.

Anne :-)
