In this clip from www.artistshousemusic.org – Frank J. Oteri, a composer and editor of New Music Box for the American Music Center, gives advice to anyone wanting to have a career in the music industry. Anyone is capable of creating music, but creating music that generates a monetary stream is more difficult. He advises you to connect to your local music community and people who support your work. Get involved with a PRO and people who represent the type of music on a national level. Be honest with yourself and keep striving.
