Congratulations Harry

And the winner of the Business Tasmania 'First Year in Business' competition is………

Harry Edwards – professional guitar player and guitar teacher from Hobart.

Harry has won $1 000 worth of business advice from a Tasmanian specialist to help him grow his business. He's going to have a think about what advice will benefit his small business best. We'll be keeping in touch with him and will share his story as it unfolds!

A glimpse of the story so far:

Harry started his music business in early 2013. He performs around Tasmania with his gypsy jazz group, Django's Tiger, but his main income is derived from teaching.

As a sole trader, he had to understand business responsibility and compliance – bookkeeping, tax, insurances – as well as building his student base and maintaining his own artistic practice as a performing musician. He found it challenging, but ultimately rewarding.

In June, Harry is travelling to Paris to study with leading gypsy jazz artists then crossing to America to attend a gypsy jazz music camp. How exciting, Harry!

We can't wait to hear all about his adventures when he gets back.
