Do you work systematically on big projects?  (2-minute video) 

Systematic Planning

Let's talk about the music for your next CELEBRATION 

Especially about PLANNING your wedding or party music.  

Want  to do it well?  Need help?  Let me give you a handy Tip.    

But first, let me tell you a story:

A few years ago I started posting videos on my blog, and this 
video was the very first.  March 6, 2011. 

I was awkward, glancing off to my notes and trying to sound "conversational".  Ha ha.

But I was determined to go ahead and explain why I find a systematic approach works so well on every project.

Thank goodness I'm not so camera-shy these days, but my original message is still true as ever.

Are you planning an event?  What strategy will you use?  

I always recommend that people use a clear SYSTEM 
for  any  big project, especially event planning.

Whether you're planning a Mardi Gras party, a friend's  wedding, or  an office holiday party, success depends on a systematic strategy.
For example, working systematically will help, especially 
if your next project will be anything like these:  
  • Are you like Lady Gaga (remember her?) always needing 
    to SURPRISE people with something new and exciting? 
  • Are you balancing lots of DETAILS that need to be analyzed, tested, understood, prioritized, and coordinated?
  • Are you working with close friends who need to absolutely LOVE the results?
  • Are you in charge and need to meet a deadline with perfect RESULTS, on time and under budget?

Finally, here's that Tip I promised:
Work SYSTMATICALLY. Here's how I do it:

Start by considering the "big picture".  Imagine the results, 
list the details you'll need, create a "timeline", and tackle 
the parts, one by one.  

Get help wherever you can.  In every case, using SOME 
coherent system will help you reach ALL those goals.  

Include all the important details, and measure your progress 
all along the way.

Keep all this in mind, especially when you create the mood  
your wedding and party music will create.

And now that we're talking about 
wedding and party music...

Summertime parties and Labor Day are just ahead, 
and you might be involved with planning an 
exciting celebration.

And if you or a friend are engaged to get  married, 
you might also be involved with  planning the wedding.

Perhaps both. 

So the next time you or a friend  are looking  for 
upbeat, elegant music,  played the way you want, 
think of us.
