There are tons of people we have to consider when it comes to creating music. You might think just one person gets it all started, but the truth is there are numbers of people who work to make music what it is today. First off, you have the A&R Executives who are basically talent scouts.  These are the who look for new talent in almost any way possible. Then you have the producer who oversees the recording from start to finish. You also have the arrangers who adapt the music from different instruments. This is an extremely important part of music making. Lots of artists artists write their own music, but the majority do not.  This is where a lyricist becomes involved. They are the talented writers behind the scenes. There are even more people responsible for creating the music you hear, and it takes a lot of talent and skill to make the music we love to listen to.
