How To Make An Early Career In Music
By Sarika Kabra
Music forms a part of every person's life. Love it or hate it, but you can't ignore it. Of course the degree of involvement with music may vary from person to person, and some are more involved with music than others. If you are interested in music purely as a passing interest, you would be getting along with listening to the latest songs, or those of your choice. If you are a serious music buff who is interested in making a career out of music, your level of interest would be totally different. Whatever be the category you belong to, music will continue to form a part of your life.
These days the TV world is abuzz with the latest form in which people are making a start in the field of music. What was earlier limited to an odd show here and there has now morphed into a full and complete industry that is aimed at budding youngsters who have the talent, but do not know where to get a break. These shows are in the form of competitions and contests that filter out the best talent, and then give them a chance to record their own music in a professional music recording studio. American Idol has been a hit year after year. While the critics may term this as overexposure for children at an impressionable age, the fact remains that a lot of talent emerges in these shows, that would have otherwise never gone beyond the family get-togethers that sometimes give a chance to the aspiring singer.
Another place where a decent career can be made is as a disc jockey. Again a line that was not in favor some time back, this career option has really taken off in recent times. Why, I have a friend, Richard, who works in his computer shop in the day, and DJs at night in the club of his choice. He is in it purely for the love of music, and does not charge for his performances (I was lucky to be presented a collection of remixes he had not yet released in the market). Besides the hotel at which he DJs regularly, Richard gets regular invitations from visitors to perform at private dos and occasions where they need really good music. So while he does not earn anything from the hotel, the private invitations add up to decent pocket money for our friend. Of course, he also utilizes his spare time at the computer shop for his music recording and prepare for the evening.
You can take the above as a perfect example of using one job to advertise your work and use it to project your capabilities. Join the profession to have fun and earn decent cash at the same time. You can exploit your talent to make good music, using pre-recorded music, or simply record your own music and make it popular in your shows. Earning money was never so much fun perhaps!
