The global music market was estimated at $30-40 billion in 2004.

The music industry means the business of music which encompasses recording, producing, publishing, distributing and marketing recorded music. The music industry is currently dominated by the “big four” record groups which are known as ‘the major labels’ or ‘the majors’. Advertising and sponsorship deals are the in thing these days and a tie-in with a major company is viewed as a sellout these days. With the Music Made Easy course you will learn about rhythm, melody and harmony in music.


Traditional ways of promoting music are giving way to innovative ways and interactive ways and this is the right time for entering into the music industry. The musicians include rock stars, opera singers, folk guitarists, jazz pianists, violinists, drummers —anybody who creates and performs music. The ExpertRating Music Made Easy Certification course will teach you the ins and outs of the music industry.

If you've wanted to learn how to play piano, you'll love this lesson. The focus is on learning the names of the keys on the keyboard.
