While music blogs may not be as popular as food or fashion blogs, they can still be useful. Music bloggers can share tips and tricks to educate their readers. A music blogger can also use their blog to grow their overall career.
When done right, music blogs can be free resources for the internet. But they can still be a source of income for the blog owner. Speaking of which…

What Are Music Blogs?
Music blogs, like this one, are a great tool for bloggers and blog readers. Thanks to a blog, I can share information and connect with people like you, who stumble upon my corner of the internet.
I can share tips and tricks, and I can write about my experiences learning and teaching music. Music blogs are great as a reader, too. I can find music blogs that cover different topics about music.
Some cover music education, while others focus on flute playing. The variety of music blogs means there’s always something to learn, and there’s always new content to read.
We live in a digital age, and so we almost always have access to the internet. Pull out your smartphone, and you can search the web to find answers to your questions.
If you’ve ever done this, you might have seen that music blogs can show up in these search results. That’s because a lot of bloggers plan their content. Instead of writing about whatever, I research topics that are actually being searched.
That way, I can get my blog in front of more people. But more people can find the answers they’re looking for when they look up something on Google.
One of the best things about music blogs is that they’re free. You can go to almost any blog and read tons of articles without having to pay anything.
As long as you have access to the internet, you can take advantage of different blogs. If you find an educational blog, you can go back often to check for new posts. You can keep learning new things all at the touch of a button.
While some content may be locked, many bloggers give the password to anyone who signs up with their email. Of course, you should be careful about giving out your email address. However, doing so means you can sign up to receive or access exclusive content.
All. For. Free.
Something for everyone
I’ve come across multiple music blogs, and no two of them are the exact same. Almost every blog has its own unique niche or something else of value.
Even other flute blogs cover other topics than I do. So if you’ve found some music blogs that you don’t like, you can probably find at least one that you enjoy.
As a blogger, you can even make some money if you go about blogging in the right way.
Benefits of Music Blogs
There are tons of benefits to reading, following, or even writing music blogs. As a flutist and writer, I can practice my writing and teaching skills whenever I post some sort of tutorial.
You as the reader can learn about different topics from a unique perspective. If you’re new to my blog, you can catch up on all of my posts that go back for many years.
Learn tips and tricks
Who doesn’t want to improve their skills or musicianship? Thanks to music blogs, you can learn tips and tricks from anyone who runs a blog. You don’t have to take a private lesson to learn the most basic concept.
That can be especially beneficial for people who are super busy and don’t have time to take lessons. It can also be good if you have a tight budget and can’t afford to take lessons that often.
Stay up to date with others
Even though I keep most of my content educational, sometimes I like to throw in personal updates. If you know a musician or you like to see what other people are up to, you can do that.
Sharing updates on school or career events is a good use of a blog post. If you run a studio, you can also use your blog to share studio updates.
Always new info
A static website (one without a blog) doesn’t get updated very often. It might only include a home page, and about page, and some other information.
However, a blog is much easier to update. As a reader, you can learn more and more from the blog owner. Blog owners can also use new blog posts to promote services and products.
Also, the more pages or posts you have, the more likely someone else is to find your website.
Should You Start a Music Blog?
As you can see, there are tons of benefits to running or reading music blogs. If you’re an aspiring musician, I highly recommend starting a music blog on your website.
You don’t have to update it every week, but you can add posts as often as you have new ideas to share. And if you have a website, you can just add your blog there, no new website needed.
If you want more information on starting a music blog, I’ll be sharing my tips in a few upcoming posts. So stay tuned to learn about everything from what a blog is to how to brainstorm post ideas.
