Welcome to the “Musician’s Guide” Series!
This series is pulled directly from the courses I’ve created for my university position in Music Business. All of these courses are designed for the everyday musician – amateur or professional – who has little or no knowledge on the topic, but wants to master it.
This class is all about Distribution and Digital Distribution. In other words: How to get your music on Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, Amazon, and all the hundreds of other streaming services.
100% Answer Rate! Every single question posted to this class is answered within 24 hours by the instructor.
It is ideal for anyone who makes music. Especially:
- Creators: If you are making music, you need to understand how to get your music to the streaming services, and how to get paid from them.
- Musicians: If you are going to be recorded, you should understand how things will work when the recording is released, and what rights you have to your performance.
- Producers: If you are releasing music, and you are not capturing “webcasting” royalties, you are missing out on money.
- Curious Minds: Anyone interested in how distribution works, and where it might be going is invited to be a part of this class.
In this class, we start with the basics of distribution, and how it worked back in the days of physical products. I’ll point you to some resources if you want to release physical products (like vinyl records), but then we will move on to the digital distribution platforms. I’ll take you inside my accounts, look at my royalty statements, and walk you through the process of getting your music distributed.
But most importantly: There is a hidden royalty that most people don’t know about. Once you are on streaming services, you can make even more money if you take just 5 minutes to set one thing up. If you don’t, you are missing out on more royalties!
The goal of this class is for you to be making money from your music on streaming services in a few days.

Praise for classes by J. Anthony Allen
“Without a doubt the best explanation and east of use that one can get. It leaves you enough room to go explore. The classes go by quick, so you can be on your way at being proficient. What are you wait for!”
“Amazing – Seriously Loved It! I took all his courses and have to say I’m so happy! Learnt loads! Jason is an awesome teacher!”
“I have never had any formal training in music at all. Trying to learn all the notes and how everything translated was a serious challenge. After going through this class, Dr. J has totally brought down the barriers. The content was very useful and was easy to grasp for me.”
“I like these courses because you can get up and running quickly without having to spend hours of time wading through TMI (too much information!). Jason hits the high points but shows you what you need to know. Thanks!”
“I’ve watched many other videos on scales and chords before, however, this one has been the best. I now understand minor scales and chords and even how to analyze songs. It really gave me the confidence to start producing music because I feel like I have some structure and guidelines to follow. AWESOME!”
“Clear and Informative – Jason has a clear uncluttered style (with the important dashes of humor) of presentation that is focused on the important key aspects of this course. Recommended for those starting out!”
“Dr. Allen does it again with his music theory series. This course really opened up everything I learned from the 1st section, and now I understand more about the composition side of things for music. I highly highly recommend this course to anyone!!! Really opened my eyes to many things I wasn’t aware of.”
“The Best Teacher Ever, who makes you understand the ins & outs of Music Theory by all means without giving what you don’t want to know.”
