Daily Success Routine
“Don’t knock on opportunities’ door and not be ready.”
It was Bruno Mars who said this when reminiscing on his daily rehearsal routine. As a musical artist, it is important that you keep practising and improving your sound. Here are some activities that you should do every day if you want to be the best!
Practice your skill
Bruno Mars, at the age of four, was performing five days a week! Dedicate time every day to improving your vocals, instruments, or producing. This will ensure that you not only stay sharp but also grow in your skill so that when the door of opportunity opens, you’re more than ready to leap through it.
Network with people in the industry
Whether it’s producers, other artists, musicians, or industry professionals, it’s important that you make yourself visible to the right people. Building relationships with the right individuals will set the stage for collaborations, live gigs, sponsorship deals and so much more. The more you network, the more you become a “familiar face” within the industry. “Out of sight, out of mind” is true, so your best bet to remain “top of mind” for when opportunities arise is to make sure you’re always “in sight”.
Take care of business
Many artists tend to avoid the business side of music (because they “just want to be creative”), but they do this to their own detriment. Contrary to popular belief, you DO need to take your email inbox seriously. Most times this is where interested parties will reach out to you and your response time can be the deciding factor in you landing that much-needed radio interview. Even if you have a manager, stay in the loop to be sure you are maximizing on your opportunities.
