Advice from a master comedian…

As all well know Steve Martin is an awesome comedian and great human being. He has been one of many inspirational people for a great majority of the world’s population. Why I say that? Well because first of all it’s true and second because he made it in the entertainment business by BEING HIMSELF which is a lot and as he says in his advice the only way be good in your area of choice is by being yourself and “being so good the can’t ignore you”.

As a struggling composer and future choir director this is what you need be a successful musician in this area. Why? Because if you are not yourself your compositions will suffer and you would be trying to imitate, write or evoke an emotion which is not likely be yours which is a big error because as author and world renounced conductor James Jordan would say “you are not being honest to music and hence not being a good musician” Alas this is what the music world is today imitation there is no “honest music”. If  an artist is successful with a song struggling artists will try to imitate that so that they’ll be equally successful. What I am trying to say here just be yourself, and in your job or career if choice people will start to notice you more and maybe we will be as successful as this master comedian.
