If you want to be a professional musician, it’s not enough to make great music.
You have to learn how to connect with an audience too.
Build skills. Build community. Success follows.
You can be the best basement musician on the block. But without an audience, it’s a hobby.
We spend lots of time focusing on the skill building and not enough time focusing on the audience building.
If you want to “make it” – you need both the skills AND the audience who appreciates them.
