STARTING YOUR MUSIC JOURNEY
Very frequent question I get from fans?
“HOW CAN I START A BAND IN A PRO WAY?”
What’s up folks? I hope you are all fine! Let me give you a few tips about this matter!
1st of all: what kind of idea do you have about making a band? What’s your target?
For example my dream was to be a musician and doing it for a living <– Which I do not reccomend
if you think doing that is easy.. dreams usually are very difficult to achieve and many times
people don’t know what it really takes to be a musician as job…many can see just the fun part…
you have no idea how many sleepless night…how many times you’ll get shut doors in your face and
also people trying to drag you down. You need lots of effort to reach a “level” and after you
reach that guess what? you will try to upgrade even more and reach a different level.. so this
is a never ending job!
Don’t get me wrong! Music is my job and I’m very happy with my life! I just want to make sure
you rellay know what being a musician as job is like! I want to you be keep your feet on the
ground by always being realistic! I’m not trying to discorauge you!
So after I wrote all this I can give you a few tips that you should consider everyday
and using it as holy bible:
– HAVE A GOAL/VISION
– MAKE SURE THAT WHAT YOU DO IS ORIGINAL
– WORK HARDER THAT YOU COULD HAVE EVER THOUGHT YOU WOULD
– “OVERDELIVER” IN EVERYTHING YOU DO
– NEVER GROW AN “EGO”!!! EGO= NO LONG CAREER
– BE HUMAN! ALWAYS CARE ABOUT YOUR FANS
– MAKE SURE YOUR PRODUCTIONS ARE VERY GOOD
– IMAGE=LIFE SO REALLY TAKE CARE OF THAT
I don’t think I need to tell you to gather good musicians right?
There’s much more I could tell you but that’s for advanced steps.. so if you wanna
start a serious band and get inside the music biz.. just follow these points above…
Other option: If your target is to play covers only, then just have fun and don’t get
too stressed ^_^, you still need to take care of lots of things but in a very easy way.
How to develop your band, dreams and follow all the tips I gave you.. well I can’t tell you
about that cos that’s part of everybody’s journey and it’s different for each one of us.. but
whatever you do, remember to enjoy every part of it! NEVER GIVE UP.. You’ll get to experience
many good and sad moments but NEVER GIVE UP believe me… I keep repeting this to myself everyday!
