I’ll stick by my statement that the music industry is the best industry in the world. In all honesty, I’m willing to wager that you already know that as well. However, given your presence, I assume you require some persuasion.
Perhaps you’re nervous because you’re not musical or you’re unsure of your place in the group. You can this top or bottom quiz to determine the best position for you at a company. Perhaps you’re just searching for documentation to print off and give to your parents to persuade them that this is a legitimate career path.
Whatever your motivation, we hope this list will leave you feeling inspired to pursue a career in music and, at the very least, with a few topics to discuss with your friends on Wall Street.
1. You Love What You Do
Since this is the most crucial reason for why you should work in the music industry, I’ll start with it. Your passion is for music. It has been and will continue to be. In addition, there is a phrase that goes, “Never do something for free if you are good at it.” Aside from that, why not be paid to do something you love?
2. There are several possible job routes.
You know, actually being a musician isn’t everything. You may still feel fulfilled even if you aren’t a rock star. Being a musician and working in the music industry are two distinct things. On the one hand, you are the one who composes and performs songs; on the other hand, you are helping to promote that music and get it heard and appreciated by a wider audience.
3. Assemble Your Heroes
In that you get to meet individuals you’ve grown to know and love via their craft, the music industry is akin to working in TV and movies in that regard. You’ll get the opportunity to meet and collaborate with someone whose music or work you like at some time in the business. It’s a very weird experience when that occurs and you actually get to work side by side as equals. I remember thinking, “This is exactly where I’m supposed to be” when it happened to me for the first time.
