If you love singing and want to make it a career, here's a few ideas on how to get started.
Build a repertoire
Learn music that's outside your interests. The more styles you can master, the more likely you will find gigs.
Network with local bands, sit in on practices and jam with them. If you're good, they will most likely find something quickly that they would like you to sing with them. You could also pick up recording work too.
Keep your instrument in tip top condition by hiring a vocal coach and practising vocal exercises regularly. Join a choir to ensure you sing regularly.
Have a great demo tape
Ensure your demo tape is as perfect as it can possibly be. Make sure that the rhythms are tight, levels are correct you are in tune etc. It is a showcase of your talent and you possibly only have seconds to make a great impression.
Go door to door
Put that demo tape to good use by sending it off to music labels or your singing idols.
