Will moving cities help my music career?

Imogen asks whether moving to a 'music city' will help her career as a musician.

​I live in Scotland, Aberdeen and really want to be a great performer. I know practice makes perfect, and I’m prepared to gig a lot.

My question is: would you advise on moving to somewhere more “music orientated”, like London for example?

​Hi Imogen,

What sort of music are you interested in?

That may well determine where you might be better based.
