What makes an amateur musician different from a professional musician?

Assuming that both artists make great music, what are the other factors that determine the success or failure of a musical career?

In fact, we could spend hours discussing all the different internal and external criteria that can influence the success of an artist and therefore his professionalization.

But in this article we will first of all come back to the mindset and good habits to adopt in order to behave like a true professional musician.

 Network and surround yourself well

Impossible to build a career alone in his corner.

Meet the artists of your city, get press releases, expand your network and above all, build a determined team around your project.

This applies to both the members of your group and the professionals who are supposed to help you in your career.

Amateur musicians accept mediocrity, while professional musicians demand the best.

Surround yourself with serious people who are in line with your ambitions.

 Continue to train

A common thread that can be found among professionals in all sectors is this desire (even necessity) to continue to learn, improve and train.

For a professional musician, it doesn't have to be technical.

A punk rock guitarist doesn't necessarily need to be able to release Steve Vai-style solos.

But there is always room to improve your playing (endurance, precision, etc.), your understanding of the music industry, your compositions or your music marketing.

By adopting these habits that I have mentioned in this article, you are going one step ahead of all other amateur musicians, and even some “pro” musicians.

It's up to you to put all of this in place and make the right decisions.
