The Australian Music Industry Network (AMIN) recently surveyed its members on the financial costs of working as a professional musician, particularly those relevant to travel, insurance and accounting.
The majority of respondents are engaged in other full-time work, and spend an average of $150 every week on their music career. It is clear from the survey results that a significant personal financial investment is required to forge a sustainable career as a musician or songwriter in Australia.
This feedback will inform AMIN’s understanding of the support its members require, such as superannuation or insurance policy advice.
Following AMIN’s previous success in negotiating the Virgin Baggage Allowance, the survey was also used to gather information that might be used to deliver further savings to its members in partnership with hotel and vehicle hire companies.
