The Successful Part-Time Musician Course

The Successful Part-Time Musician


What’s this course all about?



Tell me if you can relate to this…

You finish up a long day of work, or school, or taking care of kids and you want to make music.

But you have a problem.

You don’t have time. Or you’re not sure where to start. Or you feel like you don’t have enough money.

Or maybe you’ve hit the ever-so-common wall of crippling self-doubt.

In this course, I talk about how to face these problems head-on.

I know these problems first-hand because I’m a part-time musician and I have been since 2009.

And I want to help you succeed.


What musicians think of the course:

“Caleb organizes and articulates ideas I think are part of the common experience for a musician. I love the subjectivity of success that he discusses — it’s important to get outside the ‘get famous or not’ polarity that we’re spoonfed.”

Jason Gamble, musician
