What does a Music Producer do?

A Music Producer oversees the production of songs, albums and musical recordings. You’ll be in charge of the creative direction of the recording and make decisions about singers, musicians and any sound effects being used. If you’re producing an album or a collection of music you might choose which songs to include. Music producers work with artists, sound technicians and other industry professionals to ensure the overall quality of a recording.

Music Producers need to be creative and have a strong knowledge of the musical process. You’ll need to understand current trends in the music industry and be able to communicate your directions to anyone involved in the recording process. It’s important that you can show leadership but also be part of a working team.
