Next to piano masterclasses and private/skype lessons, Mike del Ferro gives this clinic at Conservatories and Music Faculties all over the world.
"It is extremely important for emerging musicians to have organizational and networking skills in order to create a career in music. Musicians who are starting their professional career sometimes don't really know how to get “gigs” in the world of clubs, concert halls and music festivals, especially without a management.
