100 Careers in the Music Business

Product Description
The music industry has undergone radical changes in recent years, but abundant career opportunities still exist for beginners with talent, imagination, and a love of music. The record industry and its dealers have suffered recent setbacks, but most other aspects of the music business continue to flourish—and this book tells beginners how and where to find rewarding jobs. Highly talented singers, song writers, and instrumentalists are always in demand, but many lesser known and rewarding career opportunities exist, with new avenues opening virtually every day. Among job opportunities described in this book are artists’ agents and managers, talent agents, sound technicians, film and TV technicians, film and TV production managers, advertising illustrators and copywriters, publicists, and many others. The author tells beginners how to match their own qualifications with potential job openings, seek and find job interviews, and get into the music business. For each job designation, she lists the special skills needed, describes a typical workday, and presents actual case studies of men and women who have found music career openings, and have gone on to make the most of them. Sidebar features include at-a-glance career tips and “voices of experience” notes citing the best and worst things about each job. New in this edition is information on how today’s new technologies have influenced careers and created opportunities in the music business. The book’s several appendices include lists of names, addresses, and web sites of music unions, organizations, directories, magazines, and schools offering degrees in music business management. There is also a glossary of music business and technical terms.

    I enjoyed this book. I was more focused on finding about careers more geared towards A&R and managing, but it also has careers involving songwriting, radio, and so on. Easy to read and a nice format.

    I especially liked that each career had quotes from an industry professional telling their favorite and least favorite thing about their job. Very insightful.

    Do you feel that you belong into the music business and don’t know which career you should choose or just want to know what is available out there? Well this guide will teach you more than you need to know about careers in the music business with advice for each career and help you decide what you want to be or what else you need for your business to run smoothly. A great book not only for people in the music business but also for the average person who wants to have an overlook upon this amazing world and how it works.
