I've noticed that a lot of people have read and suggested reading Napoleon Hill's book, Think and Grow Rich. Another good book by Mr. Hill and a fellow named W Clement Stone is, Success Through A Positive Mental Attitude. It's as good, or possibly even better than Think and Grow Rich. I'd like to remind people that just because you read a book doesn't mean you are going to become rich. In fact, if your sole purpose in life is to become rich, you've pretty much missed the point and all the reading in the world won't help you. I'd highly recommend first reading the manual of whatever piece of equipment that you may own. Also I'd recommend any and all books pertaining to the art and the craft of making music. In other words, learn how to play an instrument. Then learn how to play that instrument with others. Then learn about recording and recording techniques, and production. And last, but not least, learn about the business of music. If your sole purpose in life is to become rich and famous, you need to reexamine your life and your priorities.
working with a teacher is important so that you know that you actually have understood the material but if you use some of the on-line sites like teoria.com then you can test your knowledge acquisition as you go with their testing suite.
