Welcome To Producers Week

Welcome to Producers Week!

Producers Week is a one week themed “event” on MakingTheMogul.com that focuses on the producers.

Throughout the week, I will feature several hit producers and producer managers, offering insight into the business of music production.

Whether you’re just starting out and want to learn about how others started their careers, or you’ve been producing for a few years and feel like you still need further insight into the industry or a bigger opportunity – Producers Week is for you.

This is my first event of the kind on makingthemogul.com, so I welcome any and all comments/suggestions on how to make it better for the next time.

Thanks and I hope you enjoy it!

Now that Producers Week is completed, below is an index of all the features:
