What You'll Learn in TEM118:

  • How observing fans at Yes and King Crimson concerts informs how he interacts with the customers on his website
  • Why he ignored everything else and focused solely on audition prep before winning the job with the Met
  • How rewarding it was after winning his gig to give himself permission to pursue the other passions in his life that he had been putting off
  • How getting involved with the Met Orchestra Musician’s website and social media channels showed him it really wasn’t that hard
  • A recording project he completed that was a textbook example of finding a blue ocean, harnessing passion and the principle of scarcity
  • The incredibly honest writings he did about his successes and failures with auditions that really resonated with his customer base
  • Why it is so important to identify exactly who you are writing or speaking to when producing content (and why it is awfully easy when that person is you)
  • The incredible number of blue oceans there still are in music since we have far fewer specialists than a profession like the medical one
  • How Auditionhacker went from a personal method to a product as the result of a demonstrated need by potential customers
  • How he came to partner with Noa Kageyama of The Bulletproof Musician on an online course
  • How Rob is able to manage his time efficiently and keep his playing at a world class level while maintaining so many entrepreneurial pursuits
