Lynda Music Taxes and Accounting TUTORiAL
Most musicians count themselves lucky to make money at a career they love. But income means taxes, and taxes can lead to many questions. What exactly counts as income? What can you write off? What happens if you get audited?

In this music business course, author Rich Stim covers the most important tax issues for musicians. He starts with the basics: determining if music is a hobby or a business for you and how that affects your deductions. He then discusses money and the sources that determine gross income. From there, he shows the items you can deduct from your gross income—mileage, studio spaces, touring expenses, and other miscellaneous deductions—that can add up to big savings. Next, he covers the different tax rules for individual musicians, bands, general partnerships, LLCs, and corporations, and explains how to get an Employer Identification Number (EIN) when you need one. Finally, Rich navigates through the tax forms, including Form 1040, Schedule A, Schedule C, Schedule SE, Schedule K-1 (Form 1065), Form 4562, Form 8829, and Form 2016, and provides advice on hiring a tax preparer or going the DIY route with tax software.

Topics include:
* Managing bookkeeping
* Counting income
* Claiming expenses and other deductions
* Understanding tax entities such as LLCs
* Getting an employer ID number
* Preparing and paying taxes

Music theory is fundamental to making and playing music. However, no one has taught it in such a user-friendly and songwriting-focused way as we do here, using both keyboard and guitar to demonstrate the techniques. Professional musician Julian Velard starts the course with the building blocks of harmony: notes, scales, intervals, chords, inversions, and basic chord progressions. He then goes into voice leading—showing how to move from one chord to another by changing just one or two notes—and reviews common song forms, from the familiar verse/chorus/verse of pop to the simple verse of the blues. At the end of each chapter, Julian explains the songwriting techniques shown in the chapter within the context of his own original commercially released songs.

Topics include:

* Understanding scales, intervals, and keys
* Triads or three-note chords
* Triad inversions
* Common major-scale chord progressions and cadences
* Voice leading
* Song form elements such as verse, chorus, bridge, hook, and more
* Using common song forms in songwriting
