MUSIC - Category Challenge

Going for another category challenge post for my second post for the day. I'm at 'Music' now... and yes, I'm just doing this category challenge randomly as I please. There is a reason for this madness. Don't ponder on it but instead check out my other category challenge related posts:

* The start - http://www.personapaper.com/article/23034-im-expanding-my-persona-paper-horizons

* Anime - http://www.personapaper.com/article/23053-anime---category-challenge

On to the challenge...

Now back in the day, I used to work for a popular music retail store. I worked my way up, starting as a staff in their flag ship store. Eventually I became a customer service staff and an assistant product buyer for the store. I moved to another store as a supervisor and then moved to another store as a store manager. I also opened one new store for the company and went full circle as I came back as a store manager to the original flag ship store where I started my career. Those were good years as I was really into music. It wasn't good earning-wise but working in that store really fueled my passion for music.

My other endeavors in music involved in making music. Not making music as playing music and performing but more at the production and marketing side of things. I helped produce an album of a local hip hop group. I also wrote some press releases for another group. I also got involved in producing shows and concerts in clubs and schools. Further on, my online shop sold albums and merchandise from independent bands.

Given a chance, I'd like to be involved again, one-way or another, in the music industry, whether that be in promoting and bankrolling albums or concerts and events or even involved in retail, producing, marketing, and producing albums and merchandise.

So we have a music producer here. Does it mean you set music to lyrics?

Your jobs at the music store sound interesting. I have never had that kind of job, but music is one of my passions. I used to play in a band, and we wrote our own songs.

I have never really been into music, other than as a teenager following the crowd and doing what my peers did, but I do like listening to 60s and 70s rock (my era) when I am in the mood.

Nothing worse than a good melody spoiled by crap lyrics or vice versa...

I am a music lover and its a good thing to know that I have a friend who is also musically inclined. Best morning

That sounds like a rather wide spread sphere of activities that you've enjoyed over the years. Well done to you. My musical talent never quite overcame its shyness and so hasn't yet emerged.

It is cool to know someone who always pursue without fear their dreams and passion. I wonder why are you here? Lol! I think you also have a passion to write. God bless, I think you had a great journey in your career back then. 1000 likes and thumb ups for you.

Thanks crowntower .

Never too late to set the diva in you free valmnz !!!

allen0187 wrote on February 9, 2015, 5:47 PM

No, it is far from that. I wish I could do that though.

allen0187 wrote on February 9, 2015, 5:49 PM

It was a great job no doubt but sadly the pay ain't enough for everyday expenses.

You should write a post about your band and the songs that you made Porcospino .

allen0187 wrote on February 9, 2015, 5:52 PM

60s and 70s rock are fine by me. Like what I said, I have a wide range of musical tastes.

A-M-E-N-!!!

Best morning to you too cheri !!!

The music industy is a very interesting place to work. When i was in collage I worked with a producer. It was a lot of fun.

Porcospino wrote on February 10, 2015, 1:14 PM

That is a good idea. I haven't written much about music so far. Sometimes I miss the time when I was playing in a band.

Well, you've come as far as Music with the Category Challenge! I wish I could continue with my own Category Challenge soon as well. Anyway, when I was younger I also dreamt of working for a music store since I am a big music lover too!

I enjoy listening to music but that is about as far as my interest goes. I haven't seen these category challenges before, are you just supposed to write one post for each category?

allen0187 wrote on February 11, 2015, 7:51 PM

Looking forward to reading about your experience BrenndaMarie .

allen0187 wrote on February 11, 2015, 7:52 PM

Well, the reason I'm in the Music category already is because I'm cherry picking MommyCharm . I think I've only been able to do four or five of these category challenge posts. LOL! I will still push through with it though.

allen0187 wrote on February 11, 2015, 7:53 PM

Yeah, that's how this category challenge goes. Write one post for each category. That is how I'm doing it.
