10 Core Attributes of a Thinking Musician

In a previous post I wrote this monster list of the “63 Attributes of a thinking musician”. You can check it out here.

The point of that post was so you can learn what it takes to become a true thinking musician. But that list is a monster to memorize so I had to condense it down to just 10 attributes.

Before we move on I would also like to mention the “4 Skills of a Thinking Musician”

  1. Technical Skills
  2. Knowledge 
  3. Business Skills
  4. People Skills

But … In order to obtain these vastly important skills we need to change the way we think. And the way we think will affect our behavior and our behavior will determine whether we will take action or not.

“Consistent action” is key to getting things done in this world.

Before anything else a musician needs to acquire the 10 Core Attributes of a Thinking Musician. If you read off the list and realize you don’t have one of the attributes, it’s okay. One thing I learned in life is:

“Just because you were born that way does not mean you can’t change.”

If you want to really change and become successful you’ve got to be hungry for lasting change.

Check out the list of the “10 Core Attributes of a Thinking Musician”

  1. Passion
  2. Integrity
  3. Persistence
  4. Creative
  5. Adaptability
  6. Seeker
  7. Learner
  8. Influential
  9. Risk Taker
  10. Visionary

I created this hip poster to see what musicians has these core attributes. Hope you enjoy.
