Step 5: Don’t make yourself known with mediocre or low-quality material

Be aware that your proposal may or may not be liked, but keep in mind that one of the main characteristics to impact your musical material is the Attitude you must have when making yourself known, good material adds a lot, but a good attitude “multiplies”.
Step 6: Make a show
When you have the possibility of presenting your music to an audience, make the most of it, make a “Show”. It should not a recital. Set all the senses of the public to fly. It is necessary that they feel that connection with their personal experiences and your interpretation.
Step 7: Be social:
Be Sociable, not only in your project, if not in any area of your daily life. Do not shut yourself up to compose and record, go to public events, shows, recitals, and support artists who are starting, in short, to be a “protagonist” of the world.
Step 8: Be honest with what you propose
Do not do something that you do not feel, or that goes against your abilities, enjoy the growth process a lot, be happy, and do not forget that you are entering a world that various talents would like to enter.
There are many other important steps and tips, but nothing speaks more than someone’s own “Success”. Based on this, look for information and biographies of your artists or personalities of the industry that you most admire and learn from the path they traveled. Ask yourself what they did and that they generated to cause a high impact.
