Music Industry Occupations That Don’t Require You to Be a Musician

The music industry is one that is notoriously difficult to get into, even if you are a talented musician. So, how can you ever build your way into the exclusive industry if you aren’t a musician? Fortunately, with a bit of hard work and determination, you can become a member of the music industry by getting into one of the following professions, none of which require you to be a musician.

Tour Manager

One surefire way to get into the music industry is to manage an artist. Doing so requires no musical ability or even aptitude on your part. Instead, you are responsible for the execution of the artist’s tour. Tour managers handle the financial aspect of a musician’s tour as well as the itinerary. According to Tempo, managing the itinerary is an especially important part of being a tour manager. It is a great job for individuals who are very detail-oriented. The salary of a tour manager is really contingent on how famous the artist you’re managing, but it can range from $45,000 a year upward.

Event Planner

Event planners are other individuals who do not have to be musically inclined and yet play vital roles in the music industry. Successful event planners are well educated and have strong organizational skills. According to SAE Institute, a degree program can provide useful training and experience that will be practical for meeting the demands of the career. Event planners are responsible for events from beginning to end. From the initial stages where they set the date to the day of when they act as on-site coordinator, these individuals work hard for their salary that tends to start at $60,000 and rise from there.

Band Promoter

If you are a people person who has little to no musical talent (or interest in learning how to play an instrument or sing), you can still get your foot in the door by promoting other people’s music. According to Connolly Music, band promoters are on the marketing side of things in the music industry. They book gigs for the bands they promote and also advertise these shows either via email and social media sites or by putting up flyers, depending on the size of the band and the area. Their salary is entirely dependent upon the success of the band.

Just because you are not a musician does not mean that the music industry’s doors are closed to you. Seeking out employment in one of the careers above is a great way to have a musical career without necessarily playing music.
