Most people looking at the music industry as a career only think of artist, producer, and engineer, but there are a multitude of other exciting options that offer financial security and keep you close to the music you love. The Best Jobs in the Music Industry is an essential guide for those who want to explore different areas of the industry beyond these obvious routes.

This second edition includes updates and even more exclusive interviews with top professionals, giving a look at how music jobs have changed and the long-term impacts of COVID-19 on the industry. Michael Redman takes readers on a tour of different music careers--from performer to label executive to recording engineer and music producer, plus more--and boils down the essentials of each job and what you will need to get your foot in the door including:

  • job requirements
  • skill set
  • potential revenue
  • longevity
  • benefits
  • challenges

Over sixty professionals in the business share their experiences, the good and bad, and how you might take your next steps in your career--including Lee Sklar (session and touring musician), Damon Tedesco (scoring mixer), Adam Parness (executive licensing at Spotify), Mike Ladman (music supervisor at Droga5 advertising), David Newman (composer), Michael Semanick (re-recording mixer), Conrad Pope (orchestrator), Todd Rundgren (music legend), Gary Calamar (music supervisor), Mark Bright (producer), and Steven Vincent (SVP of Music & Soundtracks for the Disney Channel).

Michael Redman is a musician, composer, and serial entrepreneur who has started over ten companies, including the Hard Rock Academy, MyMusicSource, and Powerhouse Music. He is currently an author and technology consultant.
