Career in Music: Become a DJ or Sound Producer in India

To make your mark in the highly competitive music field, be sure that you have the passion and spark to turn music into a successful career. The income you will make will be entirely dependent on your skill and dedication to the work.

Who are DJs and Sound Producers?

The term DJ began as a short form of disc jockey and refers to those persons who play recorded music (or discs) professionally at events such as parties and clubs. A sound producer, on the other hand, is a person who records music, with or without singers, in a professional studio, producing sound which can then be played later on.

Both roles involve creativity, if you are a DJ you would be mixing and combining music in a creative manner, while as a sound producer you can combine a variety of sounds for your finished product.

What are the Differences Between a DJ and a Sound Producer?

The major difference between becoming a DJ and being a sound producer, apart from the creative expression, is the audience. If you become a DJ, you will need to tailor your music and performance based on the audience and their needs. As a DJ, whether you perform at gigs or in clubs, you would be required to play music that suits the needs of the concerned hiring party, for example, whether they want background music or dance music. Each category of music further has numerous styles, ranging from club music to Indian styles for dance, or jazz and blues for lounges.

If you are a DJ, you would need to have a thorough knowledge of the various music genres and be able to understand the mood of the audience so that you can create a popular vibe and keep them interested.

In comparison, a sound producer develops and arranges for music over a period of time, and does not perform directly in front of an audience. As a sound producer, you would be involved in the recording of music and in the arrangement of the different components required, such as musical instruments, sound effects and/or singers. Sound producers are also known as sound engineers, sound technicians, audio engineers, and recording engineers.

However, if you are interested in both the roles, you can become a DJ and sound producer. Despite their differences, the work of a DJ and a sound producer complement each other. As a DJ, you can play music that you have produced, thereby both promoting your work and getting live feedback. Also, by working as a DJ you will have a better understanding of your target audience, which will help you when you produce music.

How to Become a DJ/Sound Producer in India

The main criterion to become a DJ/Sound producer is to have a passion for music. To learn the specialised skills for working as a DJ, there are a variety of short-term courses available, which you can pursue directly after Class 12 or after completing your graduation in any field.
