Most importantly, this is one of the best ways to discover what you really have on your hands. Getting just a few professional opinions of people who are accomplished in the business can give you the confidence to know your song is ready to be pitched to real opportunities or the insights to make the improvements you need. Many of these professionals can help you in more ways than one. Engaging a professional for a song critique or career coaching can be a way to start a relationship that endures and that can result in real steps forward for you and your music.
