Musician Criticism

If you perform regularly, it is impossible not to encounter the phenomenon of criticism. Criticism, of course, is different. It can inspire and can break and cause to abandon ambitions. All ultimately depend on perception of criticism. Let's take a little bit to talk about how to survive criticism and accept it for the benefit of themselves.

In life and music is important not to take yourself too seriously, give the feeling of own importance, as Castaneda wrote. It is always important to remember that the next cloud musicians more experienced and more talented than you. Well, not a genius you are, so what? That's the charm, and there is room to grow. If you do not grow and does not change, probably you're dead. We also understand that the taste and color … Not even worth continuing. Criticism is seldom worthwhile, when it comes to style your group. Everyone just can not please.

Therefore, those who fundamentally do not like your style, you can simply say: 'Friends, our music is not for everyone and not for you ', and then to use idiomatic expressions with emotional colors bright. It is important also to listen to constructive criticism, if everything is bad, how can I fix it? There are always those who criticize you from good faith, that you do not stop and move forward. Such criticism is too often can hurt, but you will help to understand the weaknesses, which no doubt important. After all, in music as in life, we must learn to accept yourself the way you are. As soon as you and your team grow professionally, the number of critical comments in your address, oddly enough, not diminished, but rather added. This does not have to run to the next depression and to seek refuge in alcohol and drugs! Criticized – then you are on the right track. As a result, in fact only a musician myself and can criticize, because he puts himself to the objectives and goals to strive for.
