Today’s episode focuses on making music at home and income streams you can establish from them.

Making music at home can be a profitable business in a variety of ways, from teaching lessons to busking online. The Profitable Musician Summit is all about making money in a variety of ways, not just touring or performing live. Surprisingly, things many artists already do, like live streaming performances, can bring in some supplemental income.

Make Money By Making Music At Home

Guests on the Profitable Musician Summit like Emma McGann, have made a lot of money from Live Streaming and performing on YouTube. Rick Barker tells us how people set up donation sites and get money, without begging for it or coming off as a starving artist. Corey DiMario and Jennifer Knapp talk about how to make money organically and consistently using Concert Window. Thanks to platforms like StreetJelly, busking online is a great way to perform for an audience and make money while doing so. Frank Podlaha and Annie Arenson tell us how StreetJelly works.

If performing isn’t your thing or you just can’t do it, licensing music is a excellent way to get paid for making music at home. Joyce Kettering and Michelle Lockey share the ins and outs of writing and submitting music for licensing. If teaching is close to your heart, teaching lessons at home is possible either online or in person. Judy Rodman and Allie Tyler both make a good living from teaching lessons online and at home. Creating music courses and membership sites are yet another way to teach and make music at home. I’ll share how creating the Female Musician Academy has changed my life and allowed me to work from home full time.
