How the internet has
changed the music industry How music is purchased! How Artists Gain Exposure! One of the biggest challenges that artists face is protecting their intellectual property as the internet has made it incredibly easy for people to commit copyright. Sites like Lime wire and Napster were used by many people to illegally download music, TV and films.

However on the legal side of the internet, music is shared through the web by social networking sites where people can Like, share or even favorite songs or albums. How Music is Shared, Copied and Stolen! The internet is also used by various artists to advertise their products. Hardcore fans can create fan pages and websites for their favorite artists. This is really good for the artist as it is free advertising. How Artists are Advertised! The way in which we purchase music has changed dramatically thanks to the introduction of the internet.Before the internet, we had to go out to a CD shop to listen to our favorite music.Not only has the internet provided an infinite spaced virtual warehouse for music, but it has made it easier for people to purchase & store their music.

Take for instance, if I want find out what good hip hop songs I could purchase with my money, I can just visit this site:

http://www.hotnewhiphop.com/ Since the introduction of the internet, artists no longer need a record deal to become well known around the world. With sites like Youtube, Twitter and Facebook, (to name a few) wanna-be artists can go "viral" and gain fame globally instantly. An example of who did this is Justin Bieber who gained fame by uploading himself singing covers on his MySpace page. Justin now has nearly 40,000,000 followers on Twitter! A New Format: No Format At All ! Several record companies now have changed their format for their products, to no format at all: as digital files. Consumers are given a password to access a download of the song legally. This removes the barrier of limited space and the pain in consumers having to go out to buy a CD. Lavish Packaging! Thanks to the competition from digital downloads, music products now try to deliver a full "entertainment package" with bonuses such as posters, DVDs and artwork. This is used to try and even out the consumption of digital download with CDs. what is music production ? what are the responsibilities of a music producer? what education is needed for a music producer career? what does it take to be a music producer? How much do music producers make? where do music producers work? Music production is the process of making music and recording it. what does a music producer do? The term ‘music producer’ means different things to different people. Some are musicians, some are engineers, some are re mixers. So what does a music producer actually do? Coaching musicians through studio processes
Helping musicians choose songs to be recorded
Overseeing recording sessions
Mixing and mastering songs
Managing budgets, schedules, and negotiations
Using music-related computer software
Using sound effects gear (compressors, equalizers, reverbs)
Reference monitors & mixing boards
Using recording devices While there is no industry standard when it comes to the education needed for a music producer career, many schools offer programs related to music production and the music business in general.The music industry is arguably one of the toughest careers to break into.Certificate, diploma, and degree programs exist which can provide you with the skills required for being a music producer. In general, most programs cover:

Studio recording
Sound design
Surround sound techniques
Recording technologies (analog and digital)
Audio file management and documentation
Music composition
Song arrangement
Music concepts
Music genres —Artists want to work with someone who not only knows the production and technical side of music inside and out, but is also a musician themselves. While the technical aspects of the job are incredibly important, so is the ability to roll up your sleeves and help artists with the actual songwriting, arrangement, and composition —which is difficult, if not impossible, unless you are a musician yourself. —

While it can be easy to assume that being a musician and having an ear for music is basically the same thing, this is not at all the case. Having skill with sound is different from having skill with music, and to be successful you need to have both.
