What does it take to become a full time musician? Unfortunately, becoming a professional musician is not all about working on your talent and being able to write great music. If you want to make a living within this business you need to be able to understand the most that this is indeed a business, and it means that you need to deal with a few stressful things, from tax reports to various bureaucracy!
