Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 22, 2007
Music industry veteran, Keith Holzman's 2004 book on breaking into the label game, "The Complete Guide to Starting a Record Company" is about to be released in a revised and updated Second Edition.
The demand for this definitive guide is due in part to its use as a text for College and University courses in the business of music, including UCLA Extension, where Holzman teachers a twelve-week course on the Independent Record Label. "It's amazing how many musicians and entrepreneurs are launching their own labels," says Holzman. "Too many, however, will find themselves in hot financial water if they aren't planning ahead carefully enough." The book stresses sound marketing and financial strategizing that tries to keep its readers from making many common mistakes.
This indispensable text for musicians and entrepreneurs who want to start and manage their own independent record labels takes readers by the hand and guides them through the many steps involved in building a record company. It includes numerous checklists, charts, diagrams, forms, and an index, with URLs for more than 100 resources.
The 237-page book is available exclusively on the web and can be ordered from http://www.RecordCompanyStartup.com as a downloadable eBook (in Adobe Acrobat® PDF form) at $29.95, or as a printed, spiral-bound book at $44.95.
