Success Tips Musicians Can Teach Entrepreneurs

Studies show that some of the most successful people in all walks of life are musicians or former musicians. But why are there so many artists at the top of so many industries? Is it just a coincidence, or can there be a co-relation?

The truth is, there are many success tips we can learn from artists and musicians and apply to our everyday life.

— September 14th, 2021

Below are some of the best success tips from musicians that will help you no matter what you do in life!

1. Musicians aren’t afraid to suck

Success is often associated with a high tolerance for stepping out of one’s comfort zone and being unafraid to make mistakes. There are few things quite as disturbing as listening to a beginning musician. However, both musicians and entrepreneurs know that they won’t be amateurs forever.

2. Musicians stick with their instruments long enough to get good at it

Success has also been linked with perseverance and seeing a venture, past all obstacles, to its completion. Mastering a musical instrument doesn’t happen overnight. 

Depending on the musical instrument you choose, it can take up to a year to get the hang of it. And another 3-5 to build speed, master essential scales, learning to count, and read music (or play by ear accurately.)

In many cases, this timetable is very similar to the growth of a startup!

3. Musicians are mostly disciplined!

Successful people do what needs to be done, even when they don’t particularly like what they’re doing at the moment. For example, learning a musical instrument requires regular practice time and a lot of theory — not all of which you will find interesting or exciting. 

But successful entrepreneurs, like musicians, learn to be disciplined. Why? Because they know that in the long run, all of that hard work will pay off.

4. Musicians learn to let go of past mistakes and keep on playing

If you want to be successful, get ready to make some mistakes. The trick is to use those mistakes as opportunities to learn! 

For instance, when a musician makes a mistake in a live performance, they can’t stop and redo it; the music must go on, no matter what. As a result, they learn to let go in the moment and reviewing what happened afterward so that the same thing doesn’t happen again.

5. Musicians know that they are much more powerful as part of a team than alone.

The most successful people in the world didn’t build their empires by themselves. No single person alive can create a product, market it, and manage the money equally well. A single singer with a guitar is fine, but adding bass, drums, and perhaps a horn or a keyboard has the potential to turn “nice” into “magical” or even “perfect.”

I love how Marcos lets me learn so many songs, not just one! I like how he gives me compliments. It’s really fun when Marcos does the bass clef with the left hand and I get to make up my own song that goes with it for a warm up. It’s fun because I get to make up my own songs. I love the sound of the piano!

I really like that we get to pick what songs we want to learn in Marcos’s guitar class. I also love that he is compassionate and lets us progress at our own pace. Marcos knows EVERYTHING about instruments, and I’m glad he can share some of it with me. I’m glad that I get to learn how to read, write, and play music for the guitar. It is a lot of fun when Marcos and I play the guitar together!

Both of my children love their music lessons with Marcos. They look forward to their music lessons each week and come home eager to practice their new pieces. I especially love that he teaches them to compose their own pieces and inspires their musical creativity. Marcos is always positive and encouraging with my children, and he has a knack for bringing out their best. I highly recommend 123 Rock to anyone looking for a music teacher!
