10% of all Musician on a Mission sales are donated to our partnered music charities
Music has helped me through some hard times.
To me, it’s a form of therapy.
It’s about that feeling of flow when you play the perfect notes during an improvisation. Or when you completely lose yourself in the mix and lose track of the time.
In the years since I started Musician on a Mission, I’ve spoken with hundreds of musicians. In time I started to get a better feel for why people are so passionate about making music in their spare time.
It’s not just a hobby. It’s much more than that.
It’s a necessity. It keeps people sane. It’s a form of escapism from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
When you walk into your studio and shut that door, the rest of the world disappears.
What we do is about more than just teaching. It’s about making the entire recording process more enjoyable and helping people to get more fulfillment from their music.
For me, it’s ultimately about mental health.
But, if we are helping the “amateur” part-time musician to stay sane by helping them to find more enjoyment in the music-making process…
Then there are two more groups we are still letting down:
- Non-musicians (or people who aren’t musicians just yet)
- Professional musicians who work on their music full-time
That’s why we donate 10% of all Musician on a Mission sales to the music charities that we partner with.
On behalf of non-musicians, we support Musicians On Call.
Musicians On Call brings live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients in healthcare facilities.
Through these in-room performances to patients undergoing treatment or unable to leave their beds, they add a dose of joy to life in a healthcare facility.
On behalf of professional musicians, we support Music Minds Matter.
Did you know that 71% of professional musicians say they have experienced anxiety or panic, and 69% have experienced depression?
Music Minds Matter provide a free helpline to people in the music industry suffering from mental health issues. Anyone can call up to get emotional support and information, in addition to free counselling and CBT.
In summary, partnering with these charities furthers our goal of improving mental health through music. Now we can address all three groups:
- We support non-musicians through Musicians On Call
- We support “amateur” musicians through our free content and premium training programs
- We support professional musicians through Music Minds Matter

Founder & CEO
Rob started recording at home (very badly) at the age of 13 and has worked professionally as both an engineer and musician since then.
Now he runs Musician on a Mission, which has grown to over 80,000 email subscribers, 50,000 YouTube subscribers, and 150,000 monthly blog readers, making it the fastest growing home recording website in the world today.
Alongside running Musician on a Mission, Rob writes and records his own music and also enjoys travelling and reading.
A native of Nashville, Tennessee, Dylan has been a music-aficionado for most of his life. As a producer, he works tirelessly to help his clients make music that stands the test of time. As an educator, he makes sure to give each of his students the time and attention they need to learn both the science AND the art of mixing, recording, and songwriting.
In his spare time, Dylan loves listening to DnD podcasts, telling his friends random pop culture facts, and trying (and failing) to create the perfect shrimp risotto.
