YoungBuzz Counselor - Shubham, a career in music would require one to have genuine interest in music, musical sense i.e; the time and rhythm, versatility and lots of creativity. At the same time one needs to have publicity- contacts with the right people, money for training and for making demo cassettes for commercialization. Just as there is a wide variety of forms in music like classical, folk, jazz, pop, fusion etc there are also a variety of opportunities in this field. Besides becoming a performer (vocal or instrumental) or a teacher, one can be a composer/song writer, music publisher, music journalist, Disc Jockeys/ Video Jockeys, Music Therapist, Artist manager/PR and so on in the Music Industry. Today the advent of satellite television, the growing popularity of the music channels and corporate sponsorship of musical events, has all made music big business. Although fame and money in this field depends a lot on luck and getting a good break, but once you are established there is ample scope for making good money in this field.
