How to make money in music.   By Jae London

 

1.

2. Songwriter – You are the true heroes of this crazy industry, because when it’s all said and done….. “It all starts with a song”.  If you have mastered the art of writing commercially viable songs then you should be contacting publishers to exploit these songs for you.  A publisher can get your song(s) to the people and places that can make the difference between being in a book, a folder, a briefcase – and being played on major radio stations films and commercials…. Thus getting you paid!!!  Very little people actually know that songwriting and publishing are the most lucrative paying jobs in the music industry.  Why not get your share of the millions that await you?  If It’s easy, fun and high paying, Then Go For It!!!  This is one of the best ways to make money in music.

3. Publisher – If you are the administration type who loves making contacts with people, then this jobis for you.  Publishers do the in between work – from the songwriter to the source who will be using the song to generate the income, and they also collect the money owed from the usage of the song(s).  This is yet another one of the most lucrative ways to make money in music.

4. Disc Jockey – This job is one of the most easiest and fun jobs there is, after all “EVERYBODY” loves a party right?  If you have a large music collection, a double cd deck, a laptop, an amp, some speakers, you are an instant Dj.   Now in order to make money in music doing this, you have to do the groundwork of free gigs to get your name going.  Once this is established, the paying gigs will start rolling in sooner than you think.  There’s weddings, clubs, corporate events, birthdays, holidays and the list goes on, so grab your music collection, your equipment and start getting those bookings…you could be traveling the country or even the world.

5. Choreographer – This most definitely is a specialty job.  If you’ve got the dance moves that always has heads turning, then maybe  being a choreographer is in the stars for you.  Most artists and bands neeed someone like you to help perfect their performances on stage and in videos.  All you would really need is a short “showreel” (video) of some of your moves and routines that can be presented to these artists and bands. Once you are IN you are IN, and you will no doubt make money in  music!!!
