    Not as an artist tho, i mean as in Studio engineering, live sound, etc etc

    Even if it means starting right at the bottom just to get a foot in the door on route to a real career. Seeing as i now have a degree in music technology (2:1) i just dont know where to start. Tbh i rather be involved in Live sound rather than a plain old studio job.

    Ask around your local music venues and stuff even if they put on indie/rock bands and see if the soundguy could do with a hand on some nights even if its for free to start with to get experience. Costliest thing to do would be to buy your own PA/mixing desk etc. and sell yourself out as a soundguy for hire that DIY promoters can hire for shows they are putting on etc. i know a few people who've gone down this route but i havent seen them in a while so dont know how well it worked out for them lol.

    I always have the mindset that the music industry is exactly the type of place where its who you know and not what you have, like even if you have qualifications it all comes down to what you can do in your chosen area whether it be production/live sound etc.

    Not much help but i'd like to hear others inputs and stuff on this subject.

    Trust i hear that still, even one of my bredrins who works in live sound said that work is just too inconsistent and stuff unless you get a nice bring in.

    I know that qualifications don't really mean much in this industry but at the end of the day i don't want to have a wasted degree on my hands.

    Law.


    Become a music lawyer a good one can charge in excess of 250.00 per hour.

    Their fees remain the same, regardless of the state of the industry.

    i think critic means what can he do with the qualifications he has.

    doing another course/degree is long.

    Yep, since I started messing around with music I've always wanted to blend what I 'want' to become with what I enjoy doing.

    Music lawyer is me.

    How is doing another degree long?

    Lawyers can work right up to retirement ages whilst bringing home footballers wages, they run the industry.

    I've only just finished uni this summer so jumping back into it straight away is a bit peak, seeing as I already have student loan debts and all.

    Is there specific music law degrees/courses or would I have to go down the general law route?

    I hear you on the student loans, but music law is easy, it's all retrospective, so 3 years of reading boring books = A lifetime of footballer earning potential.

    I've researched long and hard when thinking about doing law and music, law prevailed and I went with that.

    For you Critic, https://www.bpplawschool.com/programmes/gdl/ It's basically a short course lasting 1 year which converts you to law.

    Make sure you study Intellectual Property Law.

    Yes, if he wants to be a solictor. BPTC is he wants to become a barrister.

    It's far from a quick career change.

    yeh cool u just made it sound quick, i know u said 1 yr course tht "converts u to law" and not "converts u into a music lawyer" just alittle misleading.

    so critic if ur to become a music lawyer its 3 years
