Advice to Aspiring Musicians: 

"Practice, play, promote and get involved with the musical community. Get yourself along to jam nights and gigs as much as you can across different genres and places . Dont be scared to throw yourself into tricky situations as you’ll learn a whole lot more from them . Get talking to people in the industry from all levels and all professions , as they are the ones who will spread to word and if you do things the right way you will get gigs. Also , don't be afraid to put yourself out there on social media, record; gigs, solos, practice sessions butdon't sit andwait for that “perfect moment” as if you do, you will get very little done. Make short term goals and once you've reached them , make sure you’re putting them out there."
