> The "classical" approach
Many people get into classical music at a very early age in order to develop their instrumental technique and style. If this is the route you’ve taken, perhaps you already had extensive musical training by the time you reached your teens. This head start is invaluable no matter what kind of music you eventually pursue. However, it does not necessarily ensure your success.
Every musical genre is very competitive. Use the checklist to make sure that you’re taking advantage of every possible strategy to reach your full musical potential.
