Look no further than the Starmaker app. With its innovative features and user-friendly interface, this app is revolutionizing the way musicians connect with their audience and gain recognition in the industry. In this article, we will explore how the Starmaker app can help you transform from an amateur artist to a professional musician.
Record and Share Your Music
One of the most crucial aspects of building a successful music career is creating high-quality recordings that resonate with your audience. The Starmaker app allows you to record your own songs using your smartphone’s microphone, ensuring that you can capture your creativity whenever inspiration strikes. With its built-in audio editing tools, you can fine-tune your recordings and make them sound professional without needing expensive equipment or software.
Once you’ve recorded your masterpiece, the app enables you to share it with a vast community of music lovers from around the world. By uploading your tracks on Starmaker, you gain exposure to millions of potential fans who can listen, like, and comment on your work. This feedback not only helps you gauge how well your music is being received but also provides valuable insights for improvement.
Collaborate with Other Artists
Collaboration has always been an essential part of music-making, and the Starmaker app takes it to a whole new level. It allows aspiring musicians like yourself to connect with other artists across genres and collaborate on projects remotely. Whether it’s finding a vocalist for your track or adding live instrumentation to enhance its sound, the app’s collaboration feature opens up endless possibilities for creative partnerships.
Through these collaborations, not only do you get access to different perspectives and ideas but also expand your network within the music industry. Building relationships with other musicians can lead to future collaborations, live performances, and even record deals. The Starmaker app acts as a virtual hub where artists from all walks of life can come together and create something extraordinary.
Participate in Challenges and Competitions
The Starmaker app hosts regular challenges and competitions that allow you to showcase your talent on a global stage. These events attract music industry professionals, influencers, and fans who are on the lookout for the next big thing. By participating in these challenges, you not only get a chance to gain recognition but also receive valuable feedback from experts in the field.
Winning or even placing well in these competitions can significantly boost your music career. It provides credibility to your talent and increases your chances of getting noticed by record labels, talent scouts, and industry insiders. The Starmaker app’s commitment to nurturing emerging artists through these opportunities sets it apart from other platforms and makes it an ideal choice for aspiring musicians.
Learn and Grow as an Artist
Becoming a successful musician requires continuous learning and honing of skills. The Starmaker app understands this need and offers various resources for artists to grow their craft. From vocal warm-up exercises to songwriting tips, the app provides an extensive library of tutorials created by industry professionals.
Moreover, the Starmaker community itself is a treasure trove of knowledge where artists share their experiences, insights, and advice. By actively engaging with this community, you not only learn from others’ experiences but also build connections with like-minded individuals who share your passion for music.
In conclusion, the Starmaker app is more than just another platform for sharing music; it is a powerful tool that can help launch your music career.

Best Acting Classes, Advice and Tips for Actors
How to find paid audience work in los angeles and hollywood.
Ever think the audience work Los Angeles offers would be your next job? It’s true that people, for the most part, budding actors, get paid to sit in the studio audience for tv show tapings. The entertainment world needs live people to create the energy that comes with people seeing a show firsthand. The best part? You don’t need mad skills and there are companies offering paid audience work in Los Angeles.
How to Find Paid Audience Work in Los Angeles?
I’ve been in the audience for hundreds of shows. Starting with Deal or No Deal, The Arsenio Hall Show and even a couple of episodes of Seinfeld. Yes, I’m dating myself. I didn’t stop there, over the years I’ve been to hundreds of exciting shows and a handful of shows that made me embarrassed to clap. The last show I was at as an audience member was an episode of The Mask and I did have to sign an NDA, so I can’t tell you any details about the upcoming show.
The paid audience work is for live shows, sitcoms and even court shows. It’s a change to see live TV in action, learn about the set and even get a little bit of Hollywood buzz. If you are living in the area or moving to Los Angeles for work, this is a great source of income.
You won’t be rich watching the shows, but you will pay the bills. I know people who are audience fillers fulltime and they pay all the bills this way (and know way too much about TV shows.)
How to Find Paid TV Audience Work
Finding paid TV audience work can be a bit more specific than finding other types of paid audience work. If you are an actor or do voice work , you have a way to find work that’s more traditional. Audience work in Los Angeles is a bit more last minute when it comes to committing to a show and you need to be ready to roll!
Start by contacting research TV production companies that produce shows with live audiences. Look for companies that specialize in producing TV shows that require a live audience, such as game shows, talk shows, or variety shows. Our list below covers the five biggest audience companies in the Los Angeles metro area.
Check the websites of TV production companies. Many TV production companies have a page on their website that explains how to become a member of the live audience for their shows. Some hire people directly and you will need to apply that way.
Look for websites that specialize in connecting audience members with TV shows. There are small communities on Facebook and local apps that offer access to paid audience opportunities.
Follow social media accounts of TV shows. Many TV shows advertise when they need a live audience on their social media accounts, such as Twitter or Facebook.
Contact local talent agencies. Talent agencies may also be able to connect you with TV shows that need a live audience. They also can help you find work in background opportunities like crowds in movies or television shows.
When you find opportunities for paid TV audience work, make sure to read the requirements carefully, as they may have age, location, or dress code restrictions. Also, make sure you understand the compensation structure and any requirements for attendance or behavior during the taping.
Frequently Asked Questions about Audience Work
How much do audience members get paid?
Audience members get paid an hourly wage base with a required minimum number of hours provided for watching a live taping. In Los Angeles, audience work pays $70-$120 depending on the show.
Do paid audience members get free stuff?
Paid audience members have been known to get free show merchandise, candy and when the filming runs over a meal time, lunch or dinner.
Are paid audience members seen on TV?
Yes! Talk shows, game shows, and reality shows with paid audience members will pan the audience for live TV shots. People who get paid are expected to blend in with free ticket holders.
What skills are needed to be a paid audience?
Paid audience members are expected to clap, cheer and smile as requested during a live TV taping. Many people enjoy watching and are enthusiastic to see the filming and get paid too.
How do you become a paid audience member on a TV show?
Sign up to the different audience work companies, apply to the casting calls and go to the studio if you are picked to be in the live studio audience. Follow all the rules and after the show is over, the audience company will send you a check.
So where can you go to get audience work in Los Angeles?
Here are five audience companies that work in the Los Angeles area providing seat fillers and paid audience members to the studio production companies:
Standing Room Only
This is a steady working stream that many actors love to work for. You are paid well and there are a number of opportunities. This is a great place to make money as you have many options to see TV shows. Known as SRO, you need to sign up to be part of this audience company. Most actors sign up directly with this company and do audience filling when not on other gigs.
If you aren’t familiar with BTS, it’s not the boy band music group, that’s alright but you definitely need to be. Working with actors in the Los Angeles area Background Talent Services fill the audience of some of the most popular TV shows. Different from the typical ticket avenues, people who apply for positions at this company are screened and expected to be part of the studio audience in a very positive way.
Prominent on both coasts, you can find reality shows a great way to make a few extra bucks. You can sign up here. Known to help fill audiences for cooking shows, sport shows and even talk shows, the choices here are fun (and very competitive audience work). You will have a blast! Take time to check out all the TV shows available and sign up as soon as you can.
With a small selection of shows to see, you can have a great time on set. The opportunity for some great TV show live audiences is always found here, but watch carefully as Onset always saves the best for last minute. Be watchful on the emails and keep in touch with the website. Some of the most delightful TV shows I’ve sat in the audience for I was invited to at the last minute. And now the company is two separate companies (one for each coast) so if you want to apply in Los Angeles, check out OCLA and if you’re on the East Coast, you sign up at Shadow Casting .
Known for audience fillers for the talk show Dr. Phil (who is winding down his series) but has other shows under contract. Another popular show they fill is America’s Funniest Home Videos. There are a number of shows they fill, but the pay is well, under debate for some. Personally, I’ve not been paid for 2 separate occasions after working for this company (yes, you can see me on camera too, but they just won’t return your calls or emails so you will never get a penny). And there is a list of others who claim the same if you take a minute to search this company. Yet, TV shows keep hiring these folks, so if they decide to be a seat filler here, go for the fun as the pay might never come.
Audience work in Los Angeles can be a rewarding and unique opportunity. Learning about the inner workings of the entertainment business while still enjoying a TV show is a big perk when it comes to living in SoCal. Make sure you sign up for the audience company you’d like to work for and be aware of all the opportunities. Then start applying! See you on set!

Get Paid To Be An Audience Member In Los Angeles
When you first move to Los Angeles you will want to make some quick cash so the first thing you should do is sign up to do paid audience work. Television shows that are not established and do not have a following need people to sit in the audience and that is what you will be paid to do.
I joined Standing Room Only , better known as SRO. SRO is an audience and casting company that provides television shows with audience members. I went to their website and created a profile that included a photo and then I looked at their list of audience opportunities. I chose a show that had a call time and location that I could get to easily and I applied to be an audience member. The next day I received an email that informed me that I had been booked for that show. I then called a hotline to get the details of that show, the exact address and wardrobe requirements. I showed up on time, spent 6 hours ($10 per hour) at the show in the audience cheering and I made $60 for the time I spent there, paid in CASH after the show.
Men and women of all ages can become audience members all you need is:
- Valid identification (It does not have to be a California ID)
- Closed toed shoes (women) Any shoe that is not a sneaker (men)
- Wardrobe that includes bright colored plain tops or business professional clothing without logos, words or weird patterns
- The ability to follow directions
- Access to a computer so that you can apply for work daily
- An email address to receive notifications that you have been booked
When I tell people about this opportunity they inform me that they applied and were never chosen. Those people are lazy. Once you apply you do not sit back and wait for them to call you, you must visit the website daily to look for opportunities and apply for them. If you don’t apply, no one will contact you. For rush calls (last minute calls to fill seats in audiences) they say they send out emails to registered members but I have yet to receive one so it is best to check on your own for opportunities near you.
The biggest issue I had with participating as an audience member was the fact that you are not allowed to bring your cell phone with you during an audience job. Since I do not have a car I sometimes use the Lyft app to get to the locations if I think I might be late or I am confused about the location (USE CODE MTLA when you download the Lyft app and get your first Lyft ride FREE) . The second time I went for a paid audience gig I was turned away by the coordinators for having my phone. The next time I went one of the SRO coordinators kindly suggested that I ask another person there if I could store my phone in their car until after the show. This idea worked and I met a really cool woman to chat with in the process.
Being a paid audience member is a lot of fun. Most shows understand that if the audience is happy, the show will be better so they treat the audience with kindness and respect. They will have a live DJ to keep us pumped and they will offer snacks like granola bars sometimes too. Most shows do not offer refreshments and last between 4-6 hours so refresh yourself before you show up.
Even if you are not chosen to participate in a show it doesn’t mean that you can’t work that day. There is an option to work on spec, which means you show up fully dressed as though you are going to participate in the show and you wait in a spec line to see if they need you. If they do not have enough people for the audience they may ask you to go in. If they do not need you, you go home. You can get a feel for the locations that have shows at a regular time and choose one that is easy to get to and show up every day to see if they will let you in.
This is just like day labor jobs except it’s for actors. As long as you can smile and clap on cue you are qualified. One audience member described a different perk to being paid CASH for a day’s work of being in a studio audience. She said that it’s, “a great way to earn weed money.”
Here is a video of a young woman who used SRO’s paid audience member jobs to earn cash to get a deposit on her first apartment after sleeping in her car and in motels when she first moved to Los Angeles.
