Money Matters In Music Survey
This anonymous national survey from Music Victoria has emerged from a huge number of conversations, comments in passing, and wider research that has yielded very limited results regarding salaries and personal earnings in the music business.
We all have a right to clear financial expectations. This allows us to:
– understand potential career pathways;
– make informed life choices;
– accurately value our vital contributions.
Pay confidentiality clauses are now banned in employment contracts, The Raising Their Voices report shone a spotlight on gender and diversity inequality in Australian music and the gender pay gap is still 13% in 2023.
As such, we sincerely urge you contribute your anonymous insights to enable all of us to better understand and ultimately shape the industry’s renumeration landscape.
All survey responses are 100% anonymous and reporting will be on trends only.
Please note that this survey is not for musicians or composer, instead it is focused on the less documented supporting roles that surround and enable the music makers.
The Survey will close at midnight on 17 September and the Report will be published in November 2023.
Thank you all for ensuring the survey reaches as many people as possible. The greater the responses we receive the more we can identify and address the challenges of the music industry and ensure its renumeration levels enables everyone to thrive.
