Template for Writing a Music Business Plan

A few weeks ago I posted a blog on MTT Open on “How To Write a Music Business Plan”. In the comments section of that post, one of the readers suggested that I provide a template or example of a plan.

You can now download the free PDF, “Template for Writing a Music Business Plan”, here.

In addition, I will update my blog over the next few weeks with examples of the content expected in each section.

Please feel free to add to the comments section or email me at with any additional questions. Thanks for reading and I look forward to hearing from you all soon!

"Musician’s who plan to release a record independently, are no exception."

Terrible punctuation in your opening paragraph does not inspire confidence in the text that follows... just a thought.

@Carl You're Very Welcome!

@Mog Note taken. I hope you can get past an error in punctuation to find value in the rest of the post.

It looks good. Thanks for sharing.

You're welcome @ Music Business College. Does your school offer a class on business planning?

Good post. It would serve them well that entertainers, especially singers & musicians, should learn and understand the business side of their profession to better their career and avoid the scam artists.
Good luck in your own pursuits.

Thanks for reading Ron. As you can see, I'm very passionate about planning. I want artists to take the emotion out of the process just long enough to see if they actually have a viable business model. I'm not saying they should stop being creative forever, but they should at least know how much money it will take or what they can make perusing a professional career in the music business. I appreciate your comment. I wish you the best as well.
