Foster Community 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. The current music industry landscape makes it hard for people to become aware of industry dynamics, nearby resources, and career-boosting opportunities. Through conversation and community, we can build the foundation for an industry that values people more than anything else.
