What does a Music Manager do?

A Music Manager works with performance artists to secure bookings and negotiate contracts. You’ll act as a liaison between performers and the music industry to make sure your clients are well represented and receiving suitable pay and benefits. Music Managers work with new and emerging artists as well as experienced music professionals. You might spend time arranging live performances or working on recording contracts.

Music Managers usually work for several clients at once so you’ll need to be organised and be able to multitask. You’ll be dealing with a range of people from the music industry so you’ll have to be a good communicator and have strong negotiation skills. Music Managers must have a good understanding of how musicians work and will need to be up to date with what’s popular in the music industry.
