It’s hard enough to get a job as a classical musician these days and the odds at building a successful career as a soloist are even tighter. Now imagine that you want to build a career as a full time tuba soloist, sounds impossible doesn’t it?
Fortunately, there’s one musician who decided to combine his remarkable abilities as a musician and a businessman to embark on something that many traditionalists in this business would claim to be impossible; his name is Patrick Sheridan.
The Partial Observer published an article today I wrote which interviews Patrick, you’ll learn about how he decided to become a tuba soloist and how his entrepreneurial spirit has allowed him to thrive where many others have failed in this business.
Patrick’s story is a good example of how this industry will be able to survive into the future if it’s quick enough to pick up on his lead. Tomorrow’s article will cover that issue in greater detail.
