  • What Makes a Successful Musician

Kamata Music and Media School is known for making Music Professionals who have skills that make them successful in their music careers. Being a successful musician is not an easy thing. I was once told. “It is never easy.” I think that those who think and say that it has never been easy don’t have the skills that can make it not harder. There is one fact. You cannot do anything and end up being successful if you do not have skills in that field. Effective skills are built through being coached by an experienced instructor. Learning from a PRO can make things turn around faster than it seems.

There are certain notable qualities that can be traced to many successful musicians. These qualities are hard to attain. There are some qualities that are beyond control and some that have occurred to them because of circumstances in life. Okay now, let’s dive in!

  1. Music is their only option

Living in a world where everyone has various wants but limited resources is not an option. This has made it harder to find jobs and almost everything that can make us live as we want. We have to make sacrifices so that some things can work out for us. In most cases; musicians who have made it in life struggled to get other jobs or had no capability of doing anything else. People who have no plan B that they can fall on only have one plan. Plan A. This means that because the individual only has one plan that can help him or her figure how the way he or she can meet daily needs, that plan has to work. Because of this, most musicians who only have music as their plan tend to make ends meet so that they can have a better livelihood. Because of the input they make in their musical endeavors, guarantees their probability of success. This gives them confidence and adventurous attitudes that are enough to make them dive into their music profession headfirst.

  1. They have the willingness to work harder and educate themselves.

Professional musicians play many roles to make things work out these days. This means that often members of a band have to take up roles of management, promotion, and as booking agents to make things work out for them. Not only is this notable within a band but I can tell you that I know of various solo artists who have all the roles mentioned above by themselves. For this reason, it is very important for one to get the necessary education on the various aspects of the music profession to make ends meet. That is why Kamata Music and Media school has crafted up a new curriculum that allows individuals taking various instruments, voice coaching, and music production to study entertainment management so that they can be able to push their careers with skills that will make them make it in life.

  1. To be successful in music a musician does not mind living modestly

Think of it this way. Today it is very hard for an individual to have a stable income. This also applies to the music industry for all starters. It is very much possible that while pursuing your music profession you might not be able to have a stable income. It might get stable enough to make you live a luxurious life but there is only one fact behind it. It might take you years and decades before you get the money to buy you a big yacht. Because you have to pay your bills and have a good budget that will enable you to see through success in your day to day living, you have to make a choice between living an easy life against a fulfilling one. Thus, to make it an make some accomplishments in life, you don’t have to mind living in modesty. This is it! It is very awesome to have huge dreams. However, if your aim of getting into the music industry is propelled by the intention of having a large house with a yacht, for example, you are going to get quickly weeded out of the music business! Let music grow systematically and take it like any other profession. This way, you will be able to see you become successful.

  1. Successful Musicians have persistence and patience

I am going to begin this topic by asking you one simple question. What is your attitude as you pursue your music career? Having patience and persistence is the key to a successful music career. Because you cannot wake up in the morning and boom! You have become an internationally recognized music personality; you have to work hard for it. You have to endure all the challenges that come your way and you have to make sure that you stay afloat even in the storm. I bet making it in this industry is not an easy thing. You might be tempted to give up. Of course, if you do you will not make it. Thus, if you wanna look back someday and be proud of your success, you have to have a strong heart that can persist through the obstacles you will encounter and also have patience!

  1. Successful musicians have creativity at the generation of income

To stay afloat while in pursuit of your musical success, you have to figure out various ways that you will be able to generate income. Be creative and do not over-rely on gigs and shows. You can license your music and allow it to be used in television shows, adverts, and movies. You can grow tremendously as an artist if you have entertainment managerial skills. You can take upon the management of a more established artist than you are. This can help you grow yourself as an artist and also help you network with people who might be instrumental in your music career. Be creative to such an extent that if you think there are no opportunities to showcase what you have, create them yourself!

To have a successful career in the music industry, one has to get an education, live an easy life be persistent, have patience, and also be creative. Keep these qualities in mind and practice them to the fullest!
