It is within the latter, the world of performing and recording, where I have the opportunity to meet many other artists in the entertainment business who do the same thing as I: Compose music, record it, distribute it, and perform it.
You might be very surprised to hear though, how great the percentage is of performing artists out there who a) have never had any formal music training, and b) do not read music.
This is where you come in as an educated music teacher.
The selling of original sheet music is a nice source of income for recording artists – both independent and record label alike. Though, for non-music-reading independent musicians who do not have someone to automatically transcribe for them (as most record label artists have), they end up hiring a transcriptionist to produce their sheet music.
