The record industry and its dealers have suffered recent setbacks, but most other aspects of the music business continue to flourish and this book tells beginners how and where to find rewarding jobs.

For each job designation, she lists the special skills needed, describes a typical workday, and presents actual case studies of men and women who have found music career openings, and have gone on to make the most of them. Sidebar features include at-a-glance career tips and describes the best and worst things about each job. New in this edition is information on how today's new technologies have influenced careers and created opportunities in the music business.

Don Cusic shows how the music business fits into popular culture and exactly how popular music is disseminated in the American commercial market. This book explores the relationship of popular music and popular culture, the money flow, talent acquisition and development, artwork and promotion, and the strategies of multinational recording companies as they market music to consumers through media and retailers. In addition, the book discusses the marketing of specialty musics, such as classical, gospel, jazz, bluegrass, rap, and folk, by small, independent labels. Students and scholars of popular culture, as well as fans of popular music, will find Music in the Market invaluable as it explains how music becomes part of our lives from the perspective of the music business. To understand the music business is to understand the link between artists, market, and consumers.
