MU Highlight Low Pay for Musicians

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2013

All musicians should take a look at this report by the Musicians’ Union highlighting chronic levels of low pay and no pay for self-employed professional musicians: The Working Musician Report.

More than half of professional musicians are paid less than £20,000 per year and 60% have worked for free over the past year. With arts cuts and the challenges to musicians and composers posed by online file sharing and meager royalties from streaming services, careers in music are more difficult than ever to sustain.

BAPAM is committed to providing free and affordable health services for musicians and all performing artists.
