If you’re a musician, moving to a new city is tough.
Assuming you want to actually land some gigs in your new city, you’ll need to get to know the musicians around there.
While it can take years to really break into the scene, you can give yourself a huge head start by planning the move properly and doing some legwork ahead of time.
A few months ago a horn player emailed me about moving to Philly and did everything exactly right.
In fact, within a few days of being in Philadelphia, he landed his first gig as a result of his efforts.
In this post, I’m going to show you the email and break down what exactly made his approach successful.
