Above I have posted a link to one of my all time favorite videos, how to be a musician by Ambition Films, although currently the video does not have a large fan base it provides accurate how to information along with some comedy, in the video the main facts listed of being a musician are:
Be prepared and on time.
Always wear sunglasses ( a joke referring to how a large part of being a musician is about your appearance and style).
Improvisation to switch up your sound and keep it sounding new.
Play multiple instruments, don't be a one trick pony!
Have an accent ( another joke based on how musicians tend to gain larger amounts of popularity in foreign countries).
Practice Practice Practice Practice Practice Practice, the segment demonstrating this shows the co-host Frigus Cantico practicing his everywhere including bizarre locations such as a trampoline, a kiddie pool and a roof.
DID YOU KNOW: The main characters names are derived from Latin, Dolor meaning smart(or pain depending on source) and Frigus Cantico meaning Cool Song
This video was written by a fifteen-year-old! (Frigus)
The actor who played "Proffesor Dolor" is commonly labeled as a music prodigy and can play over 20 instruments fluently.
Both actors are in several different bands.
