Never Give Up! “if you want something go and get it”. A good producer will give effort into crafting his work but a great producer will spend countless hours making sure that the loops, the samples, the BPM, the sound all matches and sounds amazing. No one ever said anything would come easy to you. Music Production is an art, to those who want to pursue this as a career, just know that pursue of art as a career is not looked at as a stable job. But if you love what you do and you feel that you can make a difference in today society by the music you create and you work hard to achieve your goal then nothing and no ones opinion should matter at any point of time.
They said it about an actor ” you’ll get no where with this” but look at Denzel Washington. Denzel Washington was homeless at a time but that never stopped him from pursuing what he believed in. The society we live in has a growing problem and that is judging others on their choice of career labeling them once their plan fails. Music Production is looked as a job that is meant for those that didn’t give the effort of going to college and pursuing a degree that society sees as exceptional but that should never be the case. You love to produce and want to make a career out it, then go get it and let no one tell you otherwise.
