Have you ever heard a piece of music that took you back to a moment in your life? A note that conjured a familiar smell, a chorus that took you back to a breath-taking experience, or a song that brought back an emotion? I

t’s fair to say that everyone has experienced this phenomenon, when the power of music quotes your favorite lyric and you can’t escape the power of music on the brain. We’ll aim to break down your career path and options in this power of music article.

Start Early

If you want to further your music career, you must begin by practicing from an early age. The younger, the better, because just as a small child picks up a second language more easily, so do they learn instruments easily at a younger age.

Invest Your Time

If you weren’t lucky enough to have parents that encouraged you to learn your craft from a young age, then you need to dedicate your time to serious practice. There’s a particular rule that Malcolm Gladwell popularized.

The rule suggests that in order to master any talent, you should spend 10,000 hours doing it. Any musician knows that despite a deep love of the craft, there are days when you don’t have the energy to pick it up and practice. That’s just tough luck, if you want to master your craft then you have to practice it. Scales may not be glamorous, but they are necessary to your success. Practicing music theory can be vital to your success.

Educate Yourself

Like any of career path you may take, a degree will further your chances. A lawyer can’t practice law without the necessary further education, nor can an accountant, doctor, and even retail managers require a college degree.

Do you need a degree in song writing composition or music production to succeed? No, but it definitely doesn’t hurt. There are certain aspects of the craft that can’t be learned just by taking lessons and by regularly practicing. It offers a foundation in music, while also allowing you to network with other musicians.

Put Yourself Out There

From offering private lessons, turning up at open mic nights, playing local gigs, joining a band, there are plenty of ways to put yourself out there and get some attention for your musical skills. The majority of positions are filled through contacts in the industry, and if you aren’t out there networking, you won’t have contacts.

The Options

Will a degree turn you into a background singer, opera singer, or a singer? No, but it can certainly help you with building that network of contacts. Particularly those with an interest in musical theater, it takes time to learn how to hone your craft properly. Vocal lessons, music theory, and pedagogy, are all going to feed into making you a better artist. Making a visible commitment will help to set you apart from the crowd. It also provides you with insider information with regards to auditions.

If your interest is in being a music producer, then you will have heard the stories about those self-taught producers. If you want to be up to date with all the latest production techniques, then academic training may be worth your while. If you’re a lyricist or a songwriter, then further training can help you focus on developing your lyrics, as well as in arranging compositions.

KID TRAVIS (R&B, POP)

With an already buzzing YouTube audience of over 400K+ subscribers, Kid Travis wanted his Instagram profile to start gaining some of that same traction.

While you can get some spill over audience from YouTube, Kid Travis knew that Instagram ad campaigns could boost his presence on IG even further!

He discovered that trying to run Instagram ads yourself vs. having us add our years of experience and expertise to them made a huge difference!

His main goal was to achieve new followers who are seriously interested in his journey as an artist.

Kid Travis already had amazing talent but needed to combine his music genius with some marketing expertise to get the best of both worlds.

We were able to bring out the heart of his music through paid ads by editing & optimizing his existing videos and properly researching and structuring his ad campaigns.

The end results: We were able to consistently and predictably gain followers averaging between $0.25-$0.35 per follower (including a bulk of the promotion being done in high cost English speaking countries such as United States, United Kingdom, Australia, & Canada) resulting in around 4,000 new, engaged followers/month on Instagram.
