Monday, the 25th of November, saw the members of TSC (Tallaght Song-writing Collective) get together before a trip to Toulouse to start out a new project. This new project is called, “Preparing for Success in Music” and its focus is to put together a manual to help someone develop a career as a songwriter.
The fact is, even if you train at the best colleges nothing really prepares you for the real world. They don’t tell you about just how difficult it can be to get a gig, let alone a steady income from song-writing. Some people aren’t even fully aware of copyright or how to make an album or even just writing a song in the first place.
So the overall goal is to get something together that someone could pick up and by the end of it be able to look after everything from writing a song to keeping track of their earnings and all the other things that song-writers do on a daily basis to allow themselves to keep doing what they love.
We fly out on Wednesday and my intention is to give you guys an account (hopefully daily) on how things are going, who I’ve met and all that sort of stuff. Also, throughout this project I’ll make sure to keep you posted on how everything is going along the way.
Watch this space. There’ll be lots of things happening over the next year! If you’d like to get involved with TSC and their projects be sure to contact them through their website (Click Here to go to TSC.ie).
