How To Start A Music Career At 16 | What They Haven't Been Telling You

Learning how to be successful in the music industry when you're still in school is no easy task. Your parents typically won't be able to help you get a record deal and it can be intimidating just trying to get started in the music business. What do you do first? Who should you listen to? How do you not give up on music when your family tells you to be realistic? These are all things that no one tells you, but you need to know as early as possible. I made this video to reveal things that I wish I would have been told when I was trying to chase my dreams at 16. If your dream is to pursue a career in music you might want to watch this one.
