Nir’s Answer

It's all about connections if you want to work for a label or licensor, or most areas in the music industry. I recommend you join music groups and try and go to conferences and workshops where you can network and talk to people. Internships and admin roles are often a great way to get your foot in the door once you've made a connection.

Kevin’s Answer

I assume that you want to get into the music industry as an employee (marketing, A&R, etc.) rather than an artist? The best way to get into the music industry, in my opinion, is to try and get an internship for a company (record label), but you will have to be taking classes at the college level to be considered for an internship. Or if you know someone in the industry, that could work, too.

Unfortunately, there is no "quick and easy" way in, or everyone would go that route. Keep producing, but consider taking some music industry classes to help further your journey.

Lee’s Answer

I think the best way to get into the music industry is to get an internship. I walked into about 5 record labels, handed them my resume & told them I wanted an intership. One of them told me to sit down & had me meet with their intern coordinator & asked me to start the next week. Use any contacts that you have as well. Get to know anyone that you can.

Thomas’s Answer

No such thing as "fastest" when it comes to the music industry. With the right amount of work, however, you can get pretty far within a decade to be pretty established as a music producer or audio engineer.
