The music industry is one of the most diverse industries. Not only does it provide employment to millions across different jobs but it is also one of the most satisfying and lucrative creative jobs if you can make a name for yourself.
There are many ways of entering the music industry. You can learn making music yourself and then approach studios to record and release it, you can go to networking events and make contacts through which you hope to get your first break, you can join internships and get on hand experience which is very necessary for getting a job etc.
The industry is becoming competitive day by day. For technicians and music producers who work behind the scenes, getting recognized requires a lot of hard and smart work. You have to keep improving your skills as there is always a replacement for you in hand.
Music producers and live sound engineers are the most coveted positions. Not only they pay well and have a plethora of job opportunities, but they also include a lot of travel so you get to see a lot of places sometimes free of cost.
Pro sound engineering course includes both live sound and studio sound engineering. It gives one the complete knowledge one can have about sound. A live sound engineer has to face the fast paced adrenaline rush of concerts while a studio sound engineer sits in his quiet studio searching for the perfect sound. On spot decision making is a skill a live sound engineer has to perfect. One mistake becomes very prominent while a studio sound engineer has enough time to correct his mistakes.

Apart from making music inside his studio, a producer has lots of work outside the studio such as meetings, attending rehearsals, writing sessions, going out to shows etc. As a producer you contribute with engineering, playing, writing, arranging, mixing and mastering. A strong foundation and wide practical knowledge is required for that.
