The music industry has changed a lot over the last 20 years. Nowadays Music is distributed through streaming services. The ability of musicians to create revenue has changed dramatically. There are both advantages and disadvantages in the new terms of the music industry. It is harder for musicians to make money selling music, but it's easier than before to reach a global audience.
Musicians, producers, managers and other players in the music industry must learn to work in new ways to generate revenue and growth. There is a great potential in the music industry learning to think market-oriented and gaining a deep understanding of the music industry's terms.
