I also added steps I think that would help me in the Philippines.

  • Have voice lessons. This I had a lot.
  • Second step to have a singing career is singe a lot in front of people, concert a lot all over the city. OK, I take it as a challenge.
  • Third step of a singing career is to audition and join musicals. Done that a lot.
  • 4th step with a singing career is record yourself and post it. Have done somewhat, can do this a lot more yet.
  • 5th singing career step. Is to be a big fish in your small pond. Sing locally in the biggest events. Haven’t done this much actually yet.
  • 6th singing career tip is to find your style and stick to it so you create a brand. I still don’t know if to go for rock or Broadway.
  • I think it has to be a blended performer career, not only singing, I must act and do other artistic stuff together with singing to boost.
  • I must join a band and or a singing contest of course, that will help much.
  • To be a singer I need a following in social media. Working on it.
  • Professional recordings are needed. I could get those through collaborations at this point I guess.
  • Gotta be brave and have some showmanship.
  • Start singing original songs, not covers. Collaborating is the key.
  • Learn piano or guitar. I pick piano.
  • Learn Tagalog and record Tagalog songs.
  • Audition for every singing contest, even if it has to be online.
  • Work begets work. Exposure will get more work.
  • Sing in weddings, parties, jingles, non stop.
  • Top confidence believing in yourself is capital.
  • Personallity is a pillar. No personallity, not an interesting singer.
  • Cater to your audience. It’s abut them more than about you. They pay the tickets after all.
  • Choose your audience. You cannot please everyone.
  • Study marketing, self promotion techniques online, etc.
