How To Actually Make $50,000 a Year As a Musician

How to Really Make $50,000 a Year

  1. Get a church job (3 services a week @ $100/service) = $15,600
  2. Start a teaching studio (12 students @ $50/lesson) = $31,200
  3. Play background music once a month (@ $250/gig) = $3,000
  4. Play in a band twice a month (@ $50/gig) = $1,200

That’s $51k a year. That’s how it’s really done.

This is a great article, and realistic. Certainly, these jobs aren't as glamorous as "rock star", but all of the scenarios listed are do-able by even mid-level musicians.

How do you make money playing music?
