Here's the brief rundown of two upcoming events with more details to come soon.

MY MUSICIANS INSTITUTE EVENT ON NOVEMBER 10, 2010
I'm beginning to discover that I love teaching and sharing my knowledge of Social Media to help others move forward in their careers. It's very rewarding to see student's and attendees grasp online marketing concepts I've shared over the last few weeks and months.
Now I have the opportunity to teach past and present students, faculty and teachers, basically anyone who is part of the Musicians Institute, the tips and tools of using social media focusing on three platforms: Facebook, Twitter and Hootsuite.
Here's the blurb describing the class in case you're interested. It's also on the main Musicians Institute website!
