A Career in Music?
A career in music? I have found through my own experience that it is very rarely that you will get advice or help regarding your career in the music business from fellow musicians, even college courses cannot always fully provide that grass roots information which is so important to anyone contemplating a career in the music business. To fill that gap M2S Music has developed a number of articles entitled 'A Career in Music?' which are primarily aimed at those who are already starting to make their way or who have just started to make their way in the music business or would like to. It is not a 'How to' guide in the true sense and it will not give you all of the answers, but it will give you an idea of what to consider when embarking on a career in the music business from a practical hands on point of view. If you write or perform music as a solo artist or band and have an ambition to start a career in music then these articles will enlighten you about various aspects of the music business and Making a Career in Music.
