It was a pleasure to talk to the first North American guest on the podcast! Los Angeles based John Torcello is a musician, entrepreneur and a pioneer in the technology and recording field. 

In the first part of the episode we talked about his beginnings as an accordionist, his studies, a different perspective on competitions, the music world in LA and Hollywood in the 1970's and early 1980's, the choice of putting the concert career on pause, doing music together with other instrumentalists and much more.

Be sure to check out his recordings on Amazon. If you'd like to know more about John, feel free to contact him on Facebook.

The podcast celebrated its first anniversary and as a sign of gratitude to you dear listeners, here is a list of 17 income streams for (classical) musicians, which I compiled to help navigate young musicians in the professional music world.
