Hal Leonard has published an updated edition of Steve Gordon’s The Future of the Music Business guide. This third edition is designed to teach musicians on how to succeed in the music business, using new digital technologies, from selling music online to marketing on the social web, raising money for recording projects, creating hit songs in the digital age and more.
Gordon is an entertainment lawyer, and offers additional insights on the legal aspects of online music including what to do if someone steals your songs, how to protect your band and label names, how to find a lawyer who specializes in music and how to land a record deal.
The 350 page book also includes an accompanying DVD with a lecture titled “How to Succeed in Today’s Music Business,” delivered by Gordon at the Tisch School of the Arts at NYU.
The Future of the Music Business is written for musicians, label owners and music business entrepreneurs.
