Elevate Your Career in Music

We provide career-building tools, resources, and opportunities through community engagement for the world of individuals beyond the music.

It’s hard to have a career in the music industry. We want to change that.

Beyond The Music is a community organization designed to help individuals working behind the scenes in the music industry. We understand that these people dominate the industry, yet receive little recognition.
