The Business Side of Music

What I saw growing up were teenagers who loved music but once it came time to pay the bills, they were not able to monetize their musical talents by building relationships and seeing themselves as a business.  Eventually they ended up frustrated and broke, and ultimately turning to other means of employment and letting go of their musical dreams.  Now as an educator, I have seen the same thing happen for students graduating from music schools.  Their music skills may be refined but if their people and networking skills are not, having a successful career becomes less of an option.
