Would you like to become a successful professional musician who works full time in the music industry? The truth is, starting a career in music and earning a good living doing it is a very attainable goal.
You’ve got your well-crafted original songs in tip-top shape. You’ve learned a selection of covers that are sure to impress, maybe an Ironic boy band/or hip hop song that you’ll do acoustically, or totally rock it out, whichever way, it’ll be sweet because it’s your unique style.
The pursuit of success requires you to cultivate a commitment to consistency. In other words, you want to always be prepared to give your best performance – while you also have a plan in place to keep getting better.
