Becoming a good musician like Mozart or Bruno Mars is never an easy process and there are no short cuts in this world, so you have to go through the right steps in order to obtain your goals. If you want to be a good one you need to have the right character, skills, and personality because these are the basic necessities in order to become a topnotch in the music industry.
As mentioned above, there are no shortcuts in this life, and this is applied to aspiring musicians. Both kids and adults need to have the passion in learning more about music. While there are a lot of people who are already inclined with music, there are also a lot of those who need more training to obtain greater knowledge about the craft. Some steps to take include enrolling in a music class, listening to other songs, and accepting the fact that shortcuts don’t exist.
Secondly, ask yourself if you really want to dwell in the music industry. Is it the craft that your heart really wants or just a hobby that you want to run to when boredom hits you? Being a musician takes time and determination, so you need to take note that all great musicians didn’t reach their fame through an overnight success. They spent years and years, and practically, almost all of their lifetimes learning and sharpening their skills in music.
Thirdly, assess yourself on why you love to learn music. Is it because you want to become famous in the said craft or you want to teach and share to others your love for music that’s why you want to learn more about? It is always important to consider your reasons because it will help you realize how much time, effort, and money you are willing to spend for the craft. Also, whatever your reason is, it is vital that you put more life into your music by combining it with your personality. After all, music is dubbed to be the highest form of communication on land.
Fourthly, take pleasure in your music. It does not necessarily matter if you are as skillful as Beethoven, but if you don’t enjoy your music, you’ll never find happiness in it. Beethoven was deaf, yet he was still able to conduct an orchestra, create his own music, and basically wow the crowd every time he taps the keys. Despite his disability, he enjoyed every single life being a musician, and this is what being a musician all is about – enjoying your own music.
