Hi my name is Dr. William E. Smith and I am a professional musician and educator. I’ve been active in the music industry for over 20 years and I’ve done a variety of jobs over that time frame. I’ve been a sound man, studio engineer/owner, performing musician, songwriter, label owner, tour manager and booking agent. By having those experiences and perspectives and being successful in all of them, I realized that I could help others find a way to make a living in the music industry.

The resources I provide on this site will guide you and illuminate many aspects of the music business to show you how to build your own successful music business.
