How Do You Make Money From Music?

As one component of its Artists Revenue Streams project, the Future of Music Coalition (FMC) is conducting an online survey from Sept 6 - Oct 28, 2011 to gather crucial information about the ways that US-based musicians and composers are currently generating income from songs, recordings or performances, and how this has changed over the past five years. FMC urges US-based musicians and composers who are 18 years of age or older to participate in this online survey. Your participation is both voluntary and anonymous. There are no questions that identify you as an individual, and your data will be aggregated with thousands of other musicians.

By participating in this survey, you are contributing to something much bigger than simply providing some information about your life and musical work; the results will provide a rich snapshot of the complex nature of being a musician in the 21st century.

FMC will be sharing the data with organizations, advocates and musicians nationwide in 2012, and it will help FMC to ensure that policymakers and consumers understand the financial realities of musicians today.
