From A to Zay: The Indie Guide to Music Production is years of successes and failures, and how you can duplicate the things I did right and avoid the things I did wrong. Let's get ready to go down the list of everything you need to know about music production (and perhaps life) from A to Zay. - Xavier Dotson The whole key to Xavier's success, besides the obvious (God, faith From A to Zay: The Indie Guide to Music Production is years of successes and failures, and how you can duplicate the things I did right and avoid the things I did wrong. Let's get ready to go down the list of everything you need to know about music production (and perhaps life) from A to Zay. - Xavier Dotson The whole key to Xavier's success, besides the obvious (God, faith, family) has always been his consistency to keep creating, whether that's making beats, writing hooks, scoring films or coming up with ideas to further promote something he is involved in. Most people want the fame and the trappings of success without sacrificing anything. In this business or in anything you do, there's a price to pay to get what you want. Whatever is easy usually doesn't have a whole lot of value to it; anybody can have it.   The key is to take the smallest of action steps every day and God will put the right people and situations in your life to get you to your destiny. Let me repeat that. Work on something every single day that will bring you closer to your goal. Stop wondering what you can do and start acting.   Start acting like the person you want to be and you will become that person.   My story is about having a vision. My hope is for you to discover your gifts, focus on them and work until something magical happens. Vision, writing it down and working hard and letting God do the rest. His name alone sets the tone for who he is, what he does and the magnitude of his skill set. Super-producer Xavier "Zaytoven" Dotson copped his name from the German composer and pianist Ludwig van Beethoven because of the many similarities the two musicians share. Both were born in Germany, both mastered the organ and piano at a young age, both boast a genuine interest in music and most notably possessed the same good foresight to align themselves with key people who could help further their careers. For Beethoven it was the dignitaries of Vienna, for Zaytoven it was Gucci Mane, king of the streets of east Atlanta.

    Waste of money Do not buy this book if you’re interested in music or music business. This book just repeatedly cycles through shallow motivational platitudes utilizing a keyword for each chapter. For example one chapter is titled “Faith” and another is “Belief”. Both chapters repeat their keywords, in bold typeset, unfortunately they also repeat the same superficial content. The content reads like long-form facebook motivation memes, occasionally peppered with biographical accounts.

The content reads like long-form facebook motivation memes, occasionally peppered with biographical accounts. There is nothing in the book about indie music business or promotion, no mention of practice methods or studio organization, there is no sharing of song craft or music theory. I was expecting a book similar to Tunesmith by Jimmy Webb or Stephen King’s On Writing, to my dismay this is a low-effort book that should be shelved behind the countless other self help procrastinations.

    I initially thought the book would be more of a biography of Zaytoven's life and story on becoming one of the biggest producers in the state of hip-hop and trap music, but this is more of a guide on how to become successful in the music business (for producers and non-producers). Although much stuff you read in this book is self-explanatory and already mentioned in others, Zaytoven gives much more insight into his steps to maintain his success, strong work ethic, and network and widen your sourc I initially thought the book would be more of a biography of Zaytoven's life and story on becoming one of the biggest producers in the state of hip-hop and trap music, but this is more of a guide on how to become successful in the music business (for producers and non-producers).

I definitely recommend it!

    Love this book This is what I needed right now I've been working on my company Klassik Dream Productions LLC and although I've been making moves I was waiting for others to catch up with my dreams. This book gave me a hint of inspiration to keep going. I look up till Zay and been following the entire way. Love where he and Gucci Mane are at this time in the industry.

    A to Zay It was a great book and changed my perspective of the music industry and how I can be grounded in the bible and still be a light in the world.
