In this clip from www.artistshousemusic.org – Jim Anderson, Head of the Clive Davis Department of Recorded Music at NYU’s Tisch School, talks about the many hats that a professional producer has to wear — from psychologist to arranger to the person who gets the coffee — in order to be as effective as possible in their job. He also discusses how a producer can know when they need to bring in outside help to assist with tasks that might not be among their own strengths.
