Andrew Hitz was a 14 year member of the Boston Brass before leaving to become an musical entrepreneur, podcast host, and co-founder of Pedal Note Media, a digital media company providing products and programs to educate, entertain and inspire music teachers, players and fans.
We’re continuing our month-long series on music podcasters and entrepreneurs. Most classical musicians dream of winning a major orchestra job or touring the world as a soloist or with a successful ensemble. But after 14 years of being on the road 200 days out of the year, Andrew Hitz decided that he wanted to find a different path that would enable him to entertain, teach and inspire more musicians and fans while giving him more time to spend with his family. Hold onto your horses and get a pencil or your favorite note taking app ready - what you’re about to listen to is the equivalent of a 1 hour crash course equivalent to a full MBA, marketing degree, and a primer on what you need to start your own podcast.
