This summer I want to get a job working with music. NOT in a record store but in a studio or music store. Im 15 but I'm gonna be 16 halfway through the summer.

Are their any other jobs that are music related for a teen musician?

I wanted to do that but GC is kinda far away. I was gonna work there once I get my license.

My guitar center told me that they don't hire anyone over 18. Guess it varies from store to store.

It's hard, everyone wants one.

I'd recommend getting some work experience first, GC will easily take a 19 person who's washed dishes for 3 years over a 16 year old who's done nothing before.

Theres no way you will be hired in a studio. And if you do it will be for a non-paying intern position. Which means you will be everyones bitch and buy donuts and coffee and crap like that.

buy a lot of BYOC pedals. Assemble them. Write "Marshall" on them. Sell them for twice as much as you bought them for!

You're gonna have to go with lessons. Go to your local music store; Many provide lessons through the store. But you'll have to audition for them to know whether or not you cut it. You have to be pretty skillful in addition to being a good teacher and knowing what you're talking about. Extensive theory knowledge would be very helpful.

How do you advertise lessons?
Make a flier. Plaster them everywhere.

I even put them up in stores, and one called me to **** with me.

They said "I'm interested in lessons...HEY, JERK, YOU PUT A FLIER IN OUR STORE. Just to let you know we took it down."

Calmly I responded, "Oh, okay! Thanks for the free advertising!"


That was the only call I got by the way.

My students have all come from word of mouth; friends, friends of friends and so on.

It's really not an incredibly profitable endeavor unless you're dedicated and you've done it for five years or so. Even then it pays about what a regular job would pay.

You could work at a public radio station. If you have a university in your town then you could try getting a job with their radio station. If you really want to work with music, then volunteering at a public radio station is a great place to start. They have plenty of gear, usually nice people, and you would be allowed to work with the gear and get a feel for how it works.

You probably wouldn't be paid until you've worked there long enough to secure a paying position, like listening to recordings sent in by local bands, doing a radio show, assisting in audio production, etc. It would be a great experience though, and would look good on a resume.

form a band, play gigs?

maybe work somewhere with a live band playing every night, its not musical, but its around music.
#28
If you're good enough, you can teach guitar, or whatever instrument you play.

If not, you can probably get a job stocking and/or selling stuff at a shop.

Find a sound production company, and get work helping set up for shows in the area. There's a company that sets up for the shows at the local fair, and they send me down there to help set up. You'll be in manual labor most likely, but eventually you can work your way up. BTW i'm only 14.

Can't form a band

I want to teach but I'd freeze during the audition. Unless I go to peoples houses to teach their kids.
