Myths about becoming a musician
Many people give up on their dreams of becoming a musician because they think it's a one in a million shot to make a living out of this. We will try to debunk the three most common misconceptions that prevent artists from following their lifelong passion. We will also provide a solution on how to make money for buying the instruments you need.
Myth number 1:You have to get lucky
There are too many people who gave up on music just because they think it is very hard to get discovered. While this may have been true in the past, nowadays, there are many talent shows where people are actually looking for talented musicians. All you have to do is show up and convince those people that you are worth their time. This being said, the most important thing is to work and become a great artist.
Still, there are artists who are incredibly good but they are not picked by talent seekers because they don't know how to “sell themselves.” That's why you have to study a bit of marketing in order to understand what these people are looking for and give them what they need.
Myth number 2: You have to be rich
If you play an instrument you will have to spend money on buying that particular instrument and on its maintenance. However, this does not adds up to a huge sum unless you want the best instruments on the market. It is true though that you should be prepared to invest a great deal in your passion. If you are serious about it, you will get your money back from gigs and paid performances.
If you don't have the money to buy the instruments, you should do consider becoming a Ladbrokes partner. If you have a website with good traffic you can enroll in the affiliate program and you will be paid for promoting their services. They have an online casino, a sports betting website, a bingo lottery and many other gambling options. You can visit their website to learn more about this: www.ladbrokespartners.com/ladbrokes. If you are not interested in promoting their services, you could sign up as a player and you will make money by winning at poker, blackjack, online slots or whatever game you enjoy playing.
Myth number 3 : You must be very talented
Another common misconception is that musicians must be talented. While a certain degree of talent is required to become amazing, a lot of what you see in famous artists is the result of endless hours of work. If you refuse to put in the effort, you will never become great even if you are extremely talented. Your talent will be wasted and you will always ask yourself “what if I would have done more to make my dreams come true?”. Work without charisma won’t get you far and neither will talent without work. You have to find a balance between work, talent and charisma if you want to be successful in any industry and this applies to music as well.
