It’s your personal director. Every artiste needs to know where they can improve and what they should be working on. Having Cabaret Secrets on your ebook reader is the next best thing to taking your director with you, wherever you go.

Save years of hard work. We never stop learning but there are shortcuts. Cabaret Secrets gives you a fast track to success. I share everything I know so you don’t have to make the same mistakes I did.

Save money. If I only knew these secrets when I first started out 20 years ago I would have saved £1000s on bad musical arrangements, £1000s on wasted publicity and £1000s recording CDs that sounded terrible. With Cabaret Secrets you can get it right first time.

Amazing advice from the best in the business. Learn from cabaret stars like Michael Feinstein, Steve Ross, Marta Sanders and Marlena Shaw. I asked them insider questions about how they decide which songs to sing, how they script their shows and the best lessons they’ve learned. Dozens of great pros were happy to share their secrets with me, so I could share them with you.

Practical advice you can use. Cabaret Secrets is packed with sensible, practical advice. As someone who’s been doing it for a long time, I know the hurdles and challenges a newcomer will face. I tell you what you need to know about writing a lighting cue sheet, making a PA specification and how to choose a recording studio. I even tell you what to pack for a gig on a cruise ship!

“Gary Williams’ book is a godsend for singers. It’s not only a bible for aspiring performers, but also helps pros focus in ways they might not have previously considered. It’s a must-read whether you sing jazz, pop, rock, opera or cabaret. His secrets are worth their weight in gold!” Harold Sanditen – Cabaret Artiste and host of the Crazy Coqs Open Mic
