Did It Music is the umbrella logo for the live performance coaching, music business consultancy, artist  personal management, and the music and book publishing entities headed up by Larry Butler. In these pages you’ll find valuable information for the aspiring music performer and musician, but most specifically for the singer/songwriter  – the true bottom line artistry of the music business – where it all begins. You’ll want to check out the Live Coach Quiz and the Blog pages first.

“If you can’t deliver and sell your song standing alone on a stage, with one mic, one spotlight and one instrument, then you’re not a performer and it’s not a song.” – David Lee Roth

Although recorded music remains the goal of every musician and singer, the market for CDs, downloads and streams isn’t nearly as lucrative as it once was. Today, recorded music is merely the calling card which leads to better revenue streams – live performances, publishing and merchandising. And since recorded music is just the memorializing of a live performance, it is the live performance that is the most important aspect of any musical career. Having spent over 40 years working solely in the area of live performance, I believe that this is where the young musician and singer needs to focus.

I take clients through every aspect of what they will need to do to make their live show successful – from song arrangement, to set list strategies, to mic techniques, to stage entrance and exit, to between-song patter, to stage placement, to wardrobe, to audience connections, and all the other minutiae of putting together a complete show.

For those who are not in the Southern California area, I have an online site where I can evaluate your live performance video and critique it in depth. Check it out at: www.premiummusic.net
