Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
This overview of jobs in the music industry covers just about every aspect of the business, from composing and songwriting to recording, marketing, jobs relating to tours and festivals, music in films, TV, and advertising, and education. Crouch, who works in the industry, provides job overviews for a wide range of positions, from jingle writer to agent to mastering engineer. She lists prerequisites and special skills required for each job, and describes a day in the life. She offers pointers for the job search and a brief case study of someone working in that position, with background on each one's career path (there's no salary information, however). Boxes labeled "Voices of Experience" list the best and worst things about various jobs; "Career Tips" boxes offer advice. Appendices list unions, performing rights societies, and organizations, along with directories and magazines and a list of schools offering degrees related to music business management. A lengthy glossary explains terms, but unfortunately there is no index. Many teens dream of working in music; this practical overview of professions in the field will acquaint them with aspects of the industry they never knew existed. KLIATT Codes: JSA—Recommended for junior and senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2001, Barron's, 278p. bibliog., $14.95. Ages 13 to adult. Reviewer: Paula Rohrlick; September 2001 (Vol. 35 No. 5)
