Like the creative industries as a whole, the music industry is evolving rapidly, with technology at the forefront of the production, performance and promotion of music. Musicians and producers with a future focus, self-reliance and an entrepreneurial nature are forging success in the industry, and increasingly music educators who embrace technology and contemporary genres are better equipped to keep young minds captivated.
