Happiness is when your hobby turns into a paid job.
But for that one really needs to work harder and harder.
You need to show your work and potential to the world and the best way is social media.
When you upload your videos or covers on the social platform and people share it a family of supporters is formed.
Then you start getting dm’s and calls from various kinds of people some appreciate and some do it for business.
Business in the sense of collaborations or various gigs This is how a musician can grow.
Promote your talent as much as you can 🙂
I want to be a full time musician and I want to make money from live gigs and giving the tutions on vocal production and by teaching Indian Classical Music.
Earning money as musician I think with doing a lot of concerts right.
And if am a gud composer I can go with creating music and writing songs and making a video. Of it releasing on YouTube I think
Musicians who sing in karaoke Nights at restaurants, clubs, Longue, etc.
Even in events like birthdays, marriages, parties, etc. can earn well.
Musicians can even do Busking that is performing live in public places for tips but it is difficult to earn money in that manner.
As an Indian classical singer like me one can enhance music skills by singing in religious places such as temples and churches.
A musician have many ways to earn money and get famous.
They just need to be on the right track and right direction with perfect and full dedication
Music is something no-one survives without.
To be honest music is that one form of art which provides so many emotions.
Different genre, different emotions.
It is one of those things which will never end and still people hesitate for letting their children persue this field.
For me, I want to open a YouTube channel since a long time but didn’t because it is really difficult for me to understand the strategy.
I fear my hard-working could go into vain and no-one would see my videos but I am glad there are people like you willing to boost my confidence.
Hi this is Preeti ..❤️..
well thought earning money 💰 as a musician will only lead u to live shows and concerts to earn .. but m a bit different..
I don’t know whether u will believe me or not ..
but I want to sing for someone’s happiness 😁..
I want to make people smile through my songs 🙈..
I mean maybe singing for patients (any like cancer etc) to give them hope to live ..
well obviously this I will do without charging them ..
but through this I would become famous and then when I would be called at various shows for my great initiative then maybe the amount paid to me would be my income 😉.. well thts what my plan is ..
coz I sing songs from my heart ❤️ and my heart always wants to make others happy 😊 as their appreciation is my biggest reward 🙈..
Hello. My idea of making money through music.
The first is being discovered and gaining exposure through esteemed music labels, gaining a fanbase and then doing commercial gigs.
The other way is through social media like YouTube.
Because it really takes a lot of hard work to construct something like this.And I don’t want anyone living anywhere in the world not to know about these techniques
