Keeping Up With Musical Changes

The past few years have seen extraordinary change in every industry, all thanks to advances in technology. Music and music learning have been on the leading-edge of these changes. The business of buying and selling music has been revolutionized. In the past, we Americans consumed music, songs.

For the first time in history, sales of musical instruments and related accessories has outpaced sales of music, albums, songs. What does this all mean? It means music is more in the hands of everyone. It is more for the people, by the people.

Today high quality instruments are available at prices lower than ever. And affordable recording technology is pervasive. And there are music distribution systems on the internet now that allow the most humble garage band to reach international distribution. Now money is no issue when competing with the largest record labels with their billion dollar budgets.

This is all great news for aspiring musicians. We are more in control of our careers, and don’t need to make devils deals with shifty recording industry giants. In the past, a musical artist would need to find a label willing to invest tens of thousands of dollars, or more, just to record in a recording studio.

Today, knowledge is key.
