Enrol now for only Rs.6,000/- (25% Discount) for a limited time.
A comprehensive course for the performing musician. Tips, tricks and tales about being prepared on all matters relating to booking, touring, recording and live-streaming from home.
Uday and his bandmates in Rock Machine (the group’s original avatar before they metamorphosed into Indus Creed) learned the tools and skills required to survive, evolve and thrive as indie musicians even before there was any indie scene in India. With no mentors to guide them, U & Co. had to learn it all on their own from the ground up. With a music career over three decades long, Uday has collected some wisdom (and more than a few stories) to share that could exponentially assist and expedite the aspirations of performing musicians in India.
