Here are some tips about how to become a singer in Hollywood:
Educate yourself about the industry. Visit the library and read books on music, instruments, songwriting, and related topics. Attend music seminars, open-mic nights, conferences, and other events to network with like-minded individuals who can inspire and motivate and help further your career. Develop a knack for skills that range from understanding the production process, to choreography, and associated details that singers must know.
Find someone to be your manager. Managing a singer takes a hard work ethic, communication skills, negotiation savvy, and determination. Be selective in your choice of a manager. Ask someone who will invest their time to connect you to the right people and advance your career.
Move to Hollywood and acquaint yourself with the music and talent community. If you are already a resident, then become more familiar with what the city offers to aspiring singers. Try to land as many auditions as possible as well as collaborations with other artists. The key is to gain exposure to different types of audiences.
Develop your own unique sound. Take vocal lessons or get a personal vocal coach to help strengthen your voice. Have professionals critique your vocal ability and help hone your craft.
Take advantage of social media. Networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Myspace have all been instrumental in boosting the careers of many hopeful singers. Record yourself singing and post it live to those sites. Encourage people to share the videos with their friends. This word-of-mouth technique can potentially lead to a meeting with record executives. Create a page that highlights your talent and keep everything professional to show that you are a serious singer.
