Success tips for music industry
Exponents in the music industry gave over two dozen students from Coleridge & Parry and Grantley Adams Memorial Schools greater insight into how they could be successful in the industry.
At the Barbados Music Awards (BMA) expo held at Hilton Barbados this morning, BMA co-producer and co-chair of COSCAP, Ronnie Morris, set the tone by indicating to the students that the music industry was a massive business opportunity.
Songstress Toni Norville stated that music was a discovered manner in which she could express herself. And, although Norville said that through music she was able to travel the world and stayed in fine hotels compliments of someone else paying the bills, she underscored the tremendous hard work that was needed with only the support and guidance of God and a manager like Morris keeping her going when she wanted to quit.
Morris also indicated to the students the importance of paying close attention to mathematics and numeracy skills and if you did not, you could make millions of dollars and still end up broke.
“Even finding persons to take care of those matters will not suffice if you do not or cannot check on what they are doing with your money,” Morris warned. (KB)
