What degree do you need to be a music producer?

A degree is not needed to work as a music producer. Many universities offer music degrees that help aspiring students get connected with industry professionals.

A music producer should have a natural ear for high-quality music. Producers work with artists to record and sell records. There is not a university degree that prepares a person for the chaotic music industry.

Earning a music degree with an emphasis in business may prepare most students for the job. Many music programs offer courses in recording technology, ethics, electronic music, and composition studies.
