This problem is something that happens constantly. Strangely, many people think that a music career is ‘discovered’, but in reality, a music career is created, nurtured, developed and fine tuned.

The problem is that on odd occasions someone may be discovered by a TV show or on the internet, but the reality is that this type of entry into the music industry is rare. Even those that do get ‘discovered’ find it difficult to stay there.

If you are serious about a career in the music industry, just like any other career, it takes work.

If you want to become a teacher or an engineer or most other careers, you have to study and learn from experts in the industry before you are allowed to actually teach or design structures. The music industry does seem to work a little differently in that anyone can jump in and have a go.

But, if you want to be more than a one hit wonder, you need to realise that you are the key to making it happen.

You need to make the decisions, learn as much as you can and make it happen. No one else will do it for you.
