TO THE ASPIRING ARTISTS

Are you interested in Opening for a Major act (they charge you), or to be in Showcases/Talent shows, Songwriters contests, featured in online magazines? Are you interested in learning about the business part of the music business? This is where a lot of young people fall short of. They want to get into the music business, but what they do not understand is that the music business is not all glitz & glamour. Its just as it says, its the music business. It’s 90% Business and 10% Glamour.

Sad to say a lot of aspiring artists wind up learning the business the hard-way.  Why put yourself through so much hardship when you have people who are willing to teach you how you can help you get over the hurdles.

Now that the internet is here and its here to stay, it has given many
of beginners, aspiring one’s and even major artists the opportunity to get their music out there to the masses of people over the internet, through their websites, online music stores and much more.
The opportunities are endless, but is going to take a lot of doing on
your part. Its going to take some time to learn and get experience, to networking, hard-work, investment in yourself (no one is going to work for free), and your career, to perseverance, be motivated and especially to learn to have patience.

Please invest some of your time and give a lending ear and an eye to learn about the music business. Surround yourself with people who are positive, who are seeking to be successful in life. Be open and not prejudge everything so quickly.

Learn about this business that you so want to get involve with, and
make a career out of. Do not be deceived by what you perceive on
the video’s of artists that you watch on a daily basis, there is a whole lot more to it. There is a lot of hard work and lots of the artist money that goes into these video’s.

Below is a few sites that I’m sending to you to take some time out of your busy schedule, to thoroughly check out.
