Advice for a struggling musician trying to get his band/name out there?

i have a few:

1) work hard. practice and be confident in knowing your act has really got it together. and keep practicing because you can always get better.

2) don't take things too personal. whether it comes to auditions, comments or anything music related. sometimes, you're just not what they're looking for or your music may not be for everyone. don't take it personal. just move on to the next opportunity. you'll get a million NOs, but all it takes is ONE yes.

3) write down why you're doing music in the first place and put it up on a wall. if you're a group, do it all together. that way if you're having a hard day or you guys start fighting, you can look at the wall as a reminder that nothing can stop you from your dreams'.

4) lastly, network. this business is all about who you know.

i could give you more, but i'd be here forever. so i hope those few helped. good luck!

What do YOU want to know? :)
