Recently, Onesimus was chased from stage during one of his live shows. I therefore take you through my opinion about live music shows and entertainment in general.

The Main Reason Of Music

Music can raise someone’s mood, get them excited, or make them calm and relaxed. Music also – and this is important – allows us to feel nearly or possibly all emotions that we experience in our lives.

Onesimus chased on stage

There are four evident purposes for music: dance, ritual, entertainment personal, and communal, and above all social cohesion, again on both personal and communal levels.

Reasons for creating music include ceremonial purposes, recreational purposes, and artistic expression.
A composer or musician may have more than one purpose in mind when composing/performing a piece of music.

The Importance Of Music

It can lessen the stress, pain, struggle, distraction and bring positivity and calmness in our daily life. Music holds the power to bring people together in different ways. Music can make us expressive and help us in understanding our feelings and emotions in a better manner.

How Music Affects The Audience

Music guides your audience and invokes the emotions behind your film’s story, the action and the words. It is a great enhancement to any film. Movies have never been “silent,” and as a filmmaker you should experiment with music.

Keeping The Audience Engaged In Music

1) Know Your Audience.

2) Own The Show.

3) Scan The Audience Throughout.

4) Get Them Involved.

5) Self-Deprecate.

6) Rivet Them With Something Exceptional.

7) Make ‘Em Laugh.

8) Speak To (and Expand on) Their Interests.

Ways Music Affects An Audience’s Understanding And Appreciation Emotions

A single piece of music has the potential to express different emotions and thoughts depending on how those performing decide to portray it. Music mimics life through the different musical devices and emotional aspects used.

Concert Critique

Review. Definition of the Genre. A concert review describes a concert’s overall structure – including its music, musicians, venue, time, and location – and attempts to place the concert in a larger context by comparing it to other concerts.

Making Music Your Profession

Building Your Entrepreneurial Mindset.

  1. Understand exactly what you want to do.
  2. Build a network of contacts that support your idea.
  3. Build your selling skills.
  4. Plan your work, work your plan.
  5. Utilize the Internet in every way.
  6. Employ sound budgeting and outreach strategies.

A Music Professional

A virtuoso is an incredibly talented musician. You can also be a virtuoso in non-musical fields. A politician who helps pass a lot of bills might be called a legislative virtuoso.

Getting Respected In The Music Industry

The easiest way is to be a consummate professional. That means treating everyone fairly and respectfully, working diligently, being a team player, being an advocate and a cheerleader for the industry and for others, being easy to work with, and taking care of business.
Respect – Your Most Valuable Asset!

I think the musician did not treat everyone fairly. He was disrespectful to his audience, hence, the flying beer bottles that we saw at the show.

Lasting Long In The Music Industry

The following are essential tips for a long and lucrative music career.

  1. Create something your audience will love.
  2. Help them relate to your brand.
  3. Promote your music on the right online channels.
  4. Promote your music offline, too.
  5. Prepare for a bumpy road.
  6. Diversify to stay alive.
  7. Be someone you are proud of.
  8. Don’t go it alone.

It was good that Onesimus performed alongside other artists.

Customer satisfaction

Customer satisfaction is a term frequently used in marketing. It is a measure of how products and services supplied by a company meet or surpass customer expectation.

Customer satisfaction is defined as a measurement that determines how happy customers are with a company’s products, services, and capabilities. Customer satisfaction information, including surveys and ratings, can help a company determine how to best improve or changes its products and services.

In simple words, customer satisfaction is a measurement that determines how well a company’s products or services meet customer expectations. It’s one of the most important indicators of purchase intentions and customer loyalty. As such, it helps predict business growth and revenue.

Public Psychology

Public psychology refers to the professional practice of school, counseling, and clinical psychology with some of the most seriously mentally ill, indigent, and marginalized individuals in society.
Public Psychology: A Competency Model for .

Essentially, psychology helps people in large part because it can explain why people act the way they do. With this kind of professional insight, a psychologist can help people improve their decision making, stress management and behavior based on understanding past behavior to better predict future behavior.

As a musician, one needs to understand public psychology.

In fact, music performance is different compared to public speaking or speech making. Simply perform your music and keep your speeches for the interviews.

This is what I think Onesimus lacked on the day.

He used provocative adjectives and despised men by calling them useless for not supporting women financially or not taking them out for holidays.

Live music is about performing and not making speeches.
