Breaking Into The Music Industry

Music is a big part of my life. Some of you may or may not be aware that I worked in the music industry for about 11 years. The first 6 working with Peacekeeper Security and then another 5 working with promoters from AM Productions.

Those years were filled with great memories. I met wonderful people, talented artists, including actors and actresses. Some of which I still keep in contact with. I was able to see both sides of the industry: the fan and business side.

I lucked out knowing the owners of both those businesses, but did you ever have a secret dream of getting into the music industry? Would you know how to seek out careers in music?

Artist House Foundation at is a great site to get started. Run by John Snyder, he offers a guide to a life in music and provides it through a learning experience about music and the music business.

You will find advice to parents, discussions on the business side of the industry and many resources: Such as video and article content, exclusive interviews, finding the best school, master classes, learn how to cut a cd, write a song and a community that is free to join. This community offers you the benefits of free lessons, news updates, music content only available to you and much more.

Do you have questions? Get them answered by the industry experts.

You may not even realize the many music careers available. Production, marketing, legal...literally hundreds of positions.

Behind that concert you attend, are literally hundreds of people working together to make things run smooth. Lighting, sound, production, security, stage hands,runners, guitar techs, riggers, merchandise, make up, wardrobe...too many to list.

If you are interested in the many music careers available and learn how to break into the business, take a look at this site. You'll be amazed at the content, the resources and the information provided.
