Love music and want to do something amazing in this field? From aspiring to be India’s first female record label owner to being a music therapist, here are 10 avenues to monetize your unabashed love for music!
Music therapists are professionals who help their patients with a rehabilitation program using the platform of music. They work with all ages of people and encourage their patients to play or listen to music to help them through their process.
Chennai School Of Music Therapy offers both online courses and a degree in music therapy. The Music Therapy Trust in Delhi and The MET Institute of Alternative Careers in Mumbai offer excellent degrees in music therapy.
As a music manager, one would manage the financial affairs of recording artists and musicians. This is the perfect job for someone who wants to be involved with the music industry, but also wants a job dealing with maximizing earning potential. Mumbai University offers a Bacherlor’s course in music (BMus) that covers all aspects of music, including music management.
A talent scout is someone with a deep passion for music and a keen ear to recognize good tones, rhythms and room for improvements. Scouts recruit individuals who possess talent into their company.
Any degree in arts, media management and entertainment will suffice but what matters is the drive to get experience on your own steam. Working with record labels, whether in the Indian rock, Bollywood or regional music scenes, will take you a long way. A ear for music and an appreciation for different kinds of music are necessary.
Do you have a passion for music but parents who have a passion for engineering? This career is the best of both worlds. An audio engineer records, manipulates and rearranges sound and is in many ways responsible for how a song or an album sounds. Creating new kinds of sounds is an amazing challenge and a sound engineer’s gift can extend to cinema as well.
If you love playing instruments but can’t sing there’s no need to worry! An instrumentalist is crucial in the music industry and is a part of the staff in record companies.
Now, this career may be a bit ambitious, but it is achievable for those who have a strong passion for contributing to the platform that all musicians seek out to be accepted into. A record label owner essentially takes in new and upcoming talent and helps them produce their music in order to be shared to the world.
In India, the opportunities for playback singers are huge. You can sing in different languages, do international shows and even take a stab at publishing or composing music!
An arranger ties all the aspects of a song together. With all the various aspects of a musical composition, a music arranger is necessary to put voice, harmonic structure, tempo, and tone, but most importantly, balance to the piece.
As a music teacher, you’d be able to teach people the real meaning of music and pass down the passion you have to them. This is an amazing way to nurture the musicians of tomorrow and inspire them to reach new heights.
If you’re interested in both writing and music, a music journalism career is perfect middle ground you might be seeking. There are many aspects to music journalism, such as critiquing and writing as a columnist in an entertainment magazine or a reviewer who writes about the behind-the-scenes of what goes on in this industry.

No matter where one’s fandom lies, if one saw the clip of you visiting your son in jail, the sheer dignity would have one converted to 'being yours'!
I have done enough stuff in my journey making my son and husband often exclaim vexedly, ‘Aap Zara Sa Tham Jao Ji!’
But never in my dreams did I imagine that I would be writing an open crush-puff-piece at this stage of my life!
The female condom is the most empowering invention ever made for women who finally do not have to depend upon careless male partners.
Forget the female condom, the topic of the male condom itself is a taboo. Men find all kinds of ridiculous reasons to not use one. “I like it natural”, “I am not a baby, I know when to withdraw”, “Relax, nothing will happen!” “But when is your period?” are some of the excuses at the tip of their tongues.
With half (read dangerous) knowledge of the female body, all of them suddenly turn into biology experts!
This immature thought process coupled with the loss of erection at the time of application or even the mere mention of the condom makes a lot of men averse to the idea of safe sex. Of course, everything comes at a cost. And unfortunately, this so-called ‘natural’, intimate, no barrier sex comes at the cost of women’s physical and mental health.
