Tired of hitting the road and grinding out tours? Are one or more members of your band currently unable to play live shows for personal or professional reasons? Every band and every musician needs a hiatus at some point or another — but, unfortunately, taking a hiatus from paying the bills usually isn’t an option. To help solve this problem, we have compiled this list of 5 creative ways for musicians to make money from home.
- Teach Lessons. It’s one of the oldest methods of earning money with music out there: teaching others to play. Thanks to the internet, teaching from the comfort of your own home is now easier than ever before.
- Ghostwrite. There are lots of bands, singers, and musicians out there looking for a creative person to help them write songs — and, if you find the right connections, that person could be you. Depending on how open you are to new things, ghostwriting could also be done for a wide array of purposes such as jingles or lyrics. You may even be able to publish an article or two in music industry magazines, depending on how well-known you are and on how good of a writer you are.
- Record. Lots of musicians have home studios, and there are lots of ways you could take advantage of that to bring in some income. Recording studio parts for other bands is one common way of doing this, but recording vocal voice overs is another option with lots of opportunities as long as you have the equipment and the talent to do it right.
- Rent Equipment. Renting out your equipment and/or your home studio are two virtually effort-free ways of bringing n cash.
- Create New Content For the Future. Last but not least, you should definitely be using this downtime to reconnect with your creative side. Creating new music, videos, and promotional content for your band can pay off bigtime in the future!
