75 Musicians Share Their Perspectives on the Best Things About Being a Musician

By in Music Promotion Tips on June 23, 2012

Last month, as a part of a competition I asked 400+ musicians what they enjoyed the most about being a musician. After reading through the responses I realised just how much inspiration I had accidentally collected, and I knew I had to share them some how. Today I created this poster / manifesto to share with you 75 of my favourite responses. I hope this brightens your day as much as it did mine :)

Feel free to share this poster or repost it on your blog. I might also make it available to purchase as a poster, but I’d love to know whether people would be interested in this – what are your thoughts?

All the best,
Marcus

    Fantastic! I love it Marcus. There’s so much negativity in the music biz which can distract us from what’s most important about music… each and every one of these points should serve as a refreshing ┬áreminder about what the true power and meaning of music really is.

    Very interesting that so many of the comments involve the social ramifications of music. All art including music, is valid regardless of the social context. It is first to be seen, heard, smelled, or felt, and immediately communicates on an abstract level. It is first and foremost sensory and experiential and impressionistic. Anything beyond that is after the fact.
