Bass clarinetist Michael Lowenstern opens up his own personal books and explains in detail how much money he made in music last year, from playing, teaching, recordings, sales, YouTube, etc...

An interesting look at the real numbers of the music business:

Very enlightening. Also good to note that he has a six-figure job with Amazon as his full-time gig. Everything he describes in the video is a “side-hustle”.

If he weren’t working for Amazon his teaching and performing income would certainly be higher. The rest of the musical income he describes is the most valuable insight, IMHO.

Yeah, before the last bit about music being his side hustle I thought he was going to end saying he filmed in a friend's house and lives in a cardboard box off West 57th.

Curious why he releases this at tax time.
