SEMINAR 1: OVERVIEW OF THE MUSIC BUSINESS


Part I The Possibilities

The sky's the limit with regard to the possibilities the music industry has to offer. This is true in both breadth and height! The music industry offers a dynamic and wide range of employment and opportunity. It also affords an open door to some of the highest paid "jobs" of any industry. Often, because of the very nature of the music business, these business possibilities are not even seen as jobs, but as creative opportunities!

Below is a list of career possibilities...pardon if this list is a bit long and tedious, but this seminar session is on an "overview" of the entire music industry, so hang in there! Plus, it is impossible for me to know which interests you may have...I hope this somewhat comprehensive list of career possibilities may place your specific interests in perspective (i.e., in relation to the music industry as a whole). Or, maybe spark some interest in areas you may not have known to exist.

Further, the list may become more important as a reference point as we journey through these seminars. And, as some of the named career possibilities actually come to life during the seminars, I will give you usable ways to make contact with the people and businesses that define and make up these areas of the music industry...be patient...we want to chew our food slowly and in small bites!

Also peppered throughout the below list of career possibilities are Hot Links that go to the LaCostaMusic.com SMP Membership Site…Note the "SMP" label on each of these links. These SMP Hot Links are provided in order to reveal to you that there is a wide range of additional information available to you if you join SMP as a member…

"SMP has information you need to know in the step-by-step order you need to know it." That is why SMP is called the "Taking Care of Business Website."

SMP Hot Links can take you deep into the indicated topic areas. This is because the SMP Hot Links go to web pages that contain lists of additional hot links where literally hundreds of pages of info can be studied…you must have SMP Membership to access this treasure chest of additional information…Get Your SMP Membership Password Here!

Most patrons start with the SMP Membership. This is because it is the "Taking Care of Business Website."

With SMP Membership you can learn what to do, how to do it, and when to do it! And finally, you would use the SMP Site, as the well laid out systematical information system that it is, to then actually do what needs to be done!
