When it comes to streaming services, musicians don’t really have an option. Even the world’s most famous musicians face outrage when they remove their songs from prominent streaming sites.

It’s critical that you make your work available on Spotify and Apple Music, the two most popular and widely used platforms. Google Play, Amazon Music, and YouTube Music are all prominent streaming services, as are genre-specific streaming services like Beatport and JunoDownload, which cater to electronic music producers and consumers.

2. Make money playing live shows
One of the most lucrative methods for musicians to gain money is to perform live. Even though the internet has made it possible to live stream music performances, nothing beats witnessing one of your favorite singers play live.

Playing live is not only a great way to make money, but it’s also one of the most effective ways to grow an audience. In terms of how valuable they are to your music career, gig fans usually win out over social media fans since they’ve demonstrated they’re prepared to pay money to see live music.

As an upcoming artist leveraging on the internet is a great way of making money.

If music is used in a YouTube video with advertisements, YouTube pays a portion of the ad revenue to the song’s rights holder. This covers videos on your own YouTube channel as well as videos not on your channel that use your music. You can have digital distributors collect that money from YouTube on your behalf. Youtube is also a vital tool that can be used to advertise your songs to the world thereby creating a huge fan base that is not limited just to the country.

Grants are an important source of financial support for artists if they are accessible. Musicians typically receive grants to assist them in writing new music, recording, or going on tour. Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia all have strong music funding schemes.

Local businesses, music companies, and even huge corporations may wish to sponsor you to reach your audience if you’ve built up a following. You can promote those brands at your live events, on social media, on your YouTube channel, and elsewhere.

Sponsorships are occasionally paid in cash, but they may also be in the form of free products, services, or gear at initially.

Working as a session musician for other musical projects is another method to supplement your income as a rising artist, whether you’re a singer or an instrumentalist. You can also look for work on tour with other bands if you have a flexible schedule.

8. Teach music
Another method to supplement your income is to teach others how to play your instrument. It’s a terrific method to supplement your income while also allowing you to perfect your craft.

You can create a mini-course and then offer one-on-one music lessons in person or online as a way to get started. Fan memberships can also be used to offer access to your teaching materials, such as video lessons, sheet music, and more.

9. Digital Sales
Thanks to technological advancements, you may now sing and publish your songs on the internet, where many people can listen to them or download them.

This is a favored option over CDs because it does not result in a large number of CD plates littering his home. It also eliminates the hassle of traveling with multiple CD plates, allowing you to begin by listening to the artist you want to focus on. You’ll submit your tunes, which others will download, expanding their library, and you’ll be able to relax and enjoy your job all day.
