Music Business

Music Business: Also known as the Music Industry, this is one of the largest and most profitable music career fields. Music business can include anything from managing a music retail shop, to becoming a popular musician or recording artist. This field also includes musicians who manage concert halls, opera houses, recording studios, and those who work as agents, marketing specialists for musicians, technicians, and numerous other careers. If you are interested in this career, a B.A./B.S. in Music with an arts entrepreneurship minor, or a minor in business is recommended.
