Twice this morning, I was faced with the question of whether a business needs a license to play a radio or TV station on their premises, once in a story in one of the broadcast trade publications (see the article here , in the You Can’t Make This Up column toward the bottom of the article) about a gas station that thought that they got around paying ASCAP, BMI and SESAC fees by using 6 or 7” consumer radios around the station. I wasn’t getting a cut because I didn’t know anything about the music industry. I don’t know what the life of a musician is like, and I don’t know how much time a music-lover with a different job is able to devote to music. The financial sales forecasting tool is very intuitive and makes writing a business plan more fun.
I don’t really know what other options I have and I think getting to popular music school will give me the chance to find some connections. For RIM Music Business and Commercial Songwriting majors and Music majors, specifically Music Education majors. The music industry makes you prove you are serious about songwriting by paying your dues.
Even if you have a Facebook Fan Page, dedicated music Twitter account, or Instagram, your web site trumps all of them. But stepping out in faith for your life’s dream is the biggest difference between those who don’t do anything with their music talent, and those that do.
I am so lost I have been researching good music colleges, but I just need help finding the right one. Students major in music because they are so passionate about music that they can’t see themselves doing anything else. Plus the background music sound-masking of SiriusXM music will help keep customer conversations private as well as entertain them during busy periods, helping reduce perceived wait times.
