The USA needs to start encouraging its citizens to go to trade schools because that is where the jobs that make good money are. A college degree used to be the only way to get a good paying job but times have changed and getting vocational training from a trade school is the best option many people have for earning a living. Education comes at a high price for this generation and not just financially. Going to college can give students plenty of debt with no promise of a job in return, which can set a student father back on their course of life. Young adults trying to start their lives by going to college encounter many setbacks.
The music industry has become a contradiction to music artists. It is easy to become involved, but hard to make it a stable career. Technology put the music industry in for a whirlwind. It brought the possibility of bankruptcy to large record labels and a new way for people around the world to share music, either legally or illegally. The term producer began to mean so much more and became one of the most important jobs to have in the music industry.

Becoming a music producer can mean discovering and helping make the careers of artists. However, it takes time, effort, training and contacts. That's because a music producer has plenty of responsibilities during an album's production, both on the creative and the business looks sides. The producer supervises all aspects of the recording process, from helping to select songs to contracting with session players and deciding the sound of the song, selecting the studio and engineers, booking studio time and overseeing the recording budget. All these responsibilities require ability in music, some experience , combined with a thorough knowledge of music and music theory.
Granted you have to spend money to make money, but there are few bands out there that let their experiences stand alone on the scene. Mainstream music either swallows one hit wonders or let the few musically endowed bands to flow through the airwaves album after album. A close knit band can keep their head above water in mainstream music when they know their band mates next to them have their back same way they did when they first started as a group. Artistic ingenuity is imperative for distinguishing the posers from the pioneers. Children often feel like they have to live up to their parents’ expectations and bands wanting to live up to the label’s expectations are in similar situations.
Adding to their strengths, the company is supported by an experienced advisory board made up of music industry insiders with first-hand knowledge of how music companies operate and about the challenges they might face. Lastly, Polyphonic has created in HSS a valuable and scientifically proven product with unlimited potential that can serve across different market segments (discussed at length below). However, the company is not without its own challenges. Polyphonic is operating on a “shoestring budget” of $150,000. The company is not helped by initial discussions about HSS with potential customers, which have resulted in cold receptions, at best, about the product’s potential application to the music processes despite its multiple strengths.

I propose that all unsigned rising artist should target the business side of the music industry to be successful in the entertainment business because it allows the artist to be taken seriously and make solid connections that can further his/her career. Learning the works of the music industry also enables a new artist to be further successful and profitable. Recent studies show that most new artists without professional representation and a business mindset have a slimmer chance in getting signed to major or independent labels (Lowry, 2011). Overall, the specific change needed is that unsigned artists should be concentrating on their careers as professionals and not amateurs, thus focusing on the ins and outs of the music business and how they can obtain success, generate profit, and endure longevity. Furthermore, learning the fundamentals of the music business is beneficial in many ways.
