Music Industry Podcasts to Save For Later

 Hi Upstage Family! This week we will be covering podcasts related to the music industry! 


As musicians, listening to music is an everyday activity. At least half of the time we are listening to music it is more of an “active” activity as opposed to a “relaxing” activity – mixing a song, pulling melodies and chord progressions for inspirations, etc. So, if you get sick of listening to music occasionally, podcasts may be a good alternative. 


Here are a few music industry related podcasts to save for later:
