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 in addition to the many cultural, systemic, and educational barriers that prevent or slow down a career in music. Through conversation and community, we can build the foundation for a more collaborative, informed, and empowered industry.
