Hal Leonard Publishes The Music Producer’s Handbook, Second Edition

New chapters on self-production, small studio production, and how to make money in the digital music world.

The Music Producer’s Handbook, Second Edition has just been published by Hal Leonard, revealing secrets to becoming a music producer and producing projects in any genre of music.

Among the topics covered are the producer’s multiple responsibilities and all the elements involved in a typical production, including budgeting, contracts, selecting the studio and engineer, hiring session musicians, and even getting paid.

The Music Producer’s Handbook, Second Edition also covers the true mechanics of production, from analyzing, troubleshooting, and fixing a song that isn’t working to getting the best performance and sound out of a band or vocalist. In addition, author Bobby Owsinski tackles what may be the toughest part of being a producer – being a diplomat, a confidant, and an amateur psychologist all at once.

The new edition includes new chapters on self-production, small studio production, and how the new songwriter-producer and engineer-producer hybrids make money in our new digital music world, along with offering several new interviews with some of the best-selling producers from different musical genres, who offer advice on getting started, getting paid, and making hits.

Producer/engineer Bobby Owsinski is one of the best-selling authors in the music industry, with 24 books that are staples in audio recording, music, and music business programs in colleges worldwide. He writes for Forbes on the new music business, his popular blogs have been visited more than 6 million times, and he’s appeared on CNN and ABC News as a music branding and audio expert.
