Almost every person in the country has probably thought about becoming a musician at one time or another. Many people pursue this dream but very few make it a reality on a professional level. There can be any number of reasons why that is, but without a doubt, one of the most common reasons is the artist's own lack of understanding of how the music industry actually works. That's usually because many artists are strictly creative people. They may be masters of the musical side of their craft, but if they are not knowledgeable about the business side of it, or at least resourceful enough to hire the right people to do the right things, well...you know what happens (and what won't happen). This is where Focus: The Complete Music Industry Dictionary comes in to fill in the blanks for anyone who's interested in any part of the music industry. Most music industry books are filled with legal jargon because they are written by entertainment lawyers. However, many readers end up confused or frustrated from having to look up many terms, just to understand what these authors are saying. Focus: The Complete Music Industry Dictionary cuts through the idle chatter and simply delivers the definitions of these terms directly.
