"I want to be a musician but I don't know where to start. I write my own songs. The thing is I don't know how can I make my music to be a success"
Thank you for reaching out.
Your answer is in your question:
you said, ‘I don’t know, where to start…”.
Just like if you would want to become anything, make it great in any other profession, you have to begin with some research.
So finding out HOW to become a successful musician would be the first step in your strategy.
If you are serious about being successful and are ready to take yourself to a professional level, you need to be in this for a long run and willing to do things other people are not doing.
Like writing songs regularly, be disciplined about your art.
Sharpen your songwriting skills.
If you are a singer, perfect your singing skills, look after your voice.
Look after yourself, because self love creates an amazing aura of charisma around you, that most successful people have.
Work though your fears and begin performing, first, on small stages, even in your backyard, among your friends, then go bigger and bigger.
Having 20 year art career myself I can tell you one thing, artists, musicians, writers, dancers, actors, any artists are very special people. They are dedicated to going deeper into themselves and bringing their heart out despite what people might think, or how they are going to be judged. They are doing their work because they have to. Somebody has to. It is a special profession that requires one to get over themselves, tame their ego. Understand that it is not all about them. Their art, music, performance is about healing and inspiring the souls of others.
Can you heal one soul with your song? Can you inspire hope and bring joy for this one soul that had been waiting for your words, for your tune? Yes! This is a great beginning.
Do you want to affect many, you need to do more work.
Second statement: I don’t know how can I make my music to be a success.
There are thousands of musicians. Well, more than that… You have to define what SUCCESS looks like for you. If you mean, how can make living from my music, then you have to study/look into business side of art, or get an agent/producer who would take care of that side of music business for you.
These days there are so many platforms for musicians to put their songs out and charge for the downloads. What you need is a very good strategy in marketing yourself and your music.
However, creating music comes first. Being true to your heart and making effort most people are not willing to make, working through your fears of failure and success, not giving up, making it work, is a second must.
With all of that I can help you. As a coach and an artist myself I help many creatives become professionals. My clients are people who are here to change the world.
