Becoming a musician takes some work but it isn’t all that hard as it is made out to be. Sometimes, keeping track of the small things often is enough to get you where you want to go. So, what will help you get to where you want to go, as a budding musician?
Here are 3 simple (but important) tips to consider no matter where you are as a musician:
#1: People are most important
As a rule, it is most important that you not only keep in touch with people you’ve met in the recent past while also meeting 3 new people every week. Setting aside some time in order get in touch with people you’ve just met can lead to new opportunities. As for the former, it’s a good idea to schedule a lunch or a coffee to see how they can help you.
#2: Don’t be Afraid to be Weird
Pick a niche even if it’s weird and excel in it not forgetting to sell yourself as much as possible. The best part about being a musician is that there are an innumerable number of niches available to specialize in.
Bottom line: it’s better to be the best in a niche or your choosing rather than being just another musician in a band.
#3: Get off your Computer Even if you have to finish that song you just composed, it’s important to note that the path to your
success isn’t by means of a computer but by improving your skills as a musician. Turn off the computer and practice if you must.
