- Develop your skills. Music is all about passion and should be practiced by those who have the love for music. Right after you discover that you have the talent and make a decision that you want to pursue music, then practice should start right away. Even the most celebrated artists the likes of Michael Jackson developed their skills by practicing consistently. Set your own time and train on vocals and use of instruments if it pleases you. The choice of instrument will be determined by your music genre.
- Seek opportunities. This will be a huge boost to your musical career if you link with the right people. Doing karaoke several days a week, performing at house parties and participating in various singing competitions will boost your confidence to face larger masses. At this stage, you should identify your unique style that can stand out from others in the industry. It is also advisable to join a group or attend classes where you can learn and share ideas with others who have been in the industry for some time. You can also look for a mentor and a voice coach to guide you and offer advice on how to perfect your art. This is also a crucial stage that you set realistic goals for your music. For instance, perform at a gathering of 5,000 people before the end of the year, produce an album within 3 years, have a world tour and many more goals.
- Promote your music. This is a very crucial stage that involves introducing yourself to the outside world. The choice of strategy that you employ and the efforts that accompany it will determine the outcomes.
