1). Voice lessons 

Though you may be able to sing/rap, you should still learn how to do so professionally. Unprofessional use of your vocal chords can cause your voice to crack/break during your performances, or even, shorten your music career.

2). An Agent

Getting an agent to book your shows and events can increase your exposure as well as leave more time in your hands to practice your craft. An agent can also be useful with helping you find the direction you want your music career to go, by booking only the most professional events for your performances.

3). Music Organizations

Along with an agent, having another professional entity backing your career- music organizations, you can readily be on your way to a  professional musical career. As mentioned in an earlier article,https://everythingaudio.wordpress.com/2011/03/31/how-to-collect-your-music-royalties/ , organizations such as ASCAP, BMI and SESAC can help keep the benefits from all your hard work in your music career (your royalties), coming to you.
