Do you remember the times when employment opportunities co-existed with unemployed professionals and there was still a wide chasm between the two? If you’re in the music industry, you are probably still living in those times.
This is, unfortunately, a harsh reality for most people involved in the music scene, and not just for artists. For example, great bands require efficient technicians; event companies need writers; recording labels need PR executives; clubs need managers… and the list goes on. On the flip side, countless individuals working in fields as varied as accounts, education, and the law would love to get involved professionally with the music industry – but wouldn’t know where to begin.
