Musicians & Artists
If you are new to playing music or just moved to a new city, it can be difficult to find other musicians to work with, as breaking into new music communities is tough. Even if you are already established in your area, you may struggle to find new band members to replace ones who have left your group. Local listings are a great way to find new musicians. They are also helpful for other music-related networking, such as finding teachers or jam sessions as well as alternative artists, like painters and theatre professionals.
Musicians and Artists Wanted
When a musician leaves a band, the group often places an ad to fill his or her spot. It is usually difficult to find people who play specific instruments and it is even harder to find ones who play them well. Drums and bass are hard spots to fill, as are jazz and orchestra instruments such as the saxophone and violin. Some groups even have trouble finding the right singers, piano players, and guitarists, even though these instruments are more common. Theatre groups also frequently use community listings to find cast and crew members.
Musicians and Artists Offered
Solo musicians seeking new bands, collaborative partners, or people to jam with often use listings to network. Other artists, from make up artists to writers, also use these pages to find new opportunities and people to work with.
Artistic professionals of all types routinely search for new students in their local listings. Music teachers are very common; you can find voice lessons, guitar lessons, piano lessons, and more in cities all over the country. However, art, photography, and writing teachers also frequently offer their services through private lessons and workshops.
Jam Sessions and Open Mic Nights
Listings are useful for finding jam sessions, open mic nights, and other collaborative events. These can be handy for meeting musicians and artists in your area, as working and performing together on an informal basis often leads to more permanent connections.
If you are a music professional, you may find it beneficial to find other musicians in your community listings. There are numerous bands seeking musicians and musicians looking for new group just waiting to find each other. There are also countless teachers, potential students, and jam session organisers looking for new musicians and artists to work with.
