How to Be a Musician in a Small Living Space

The biggest issue many young musicians face is space limitations.

Between your music kit, your own personal belongings, and other pressures like having a family, it can be difficult to store your gear properly, which could endanger your equipment and potentially your livelihood.

It’s all well and good for a teenager to stick their guitar in the back of their closet after trying it out for a few times before giving up, but for others, those who value their craft and may even depend on it financially, the potential risks of damage to their (very) expensive equipment can be daunting. Water damage or dings could ruin a guitar or a drum kit.

And that’s without factoring in the size of the equipment. If your storage space is limited, where can you safely store your drum kit or even a decently sized amp without any concerns? If you have more than one instrument, then the problem becomes even worse.

Storing your Music Gear

This could be a big problem for young musicians, and it can be an awkward one to solve. Short of moving to a bigger house, it may not be feasible financially or in terms of space to store your equipment immediately at hand. The risk of damage and lack of space may force you to look into another storage option.

Although there are a few different options for instrument storage, many of them can get expensive, usually have limited space and storage time and may come with a few personal security issues. If you’re not in complete control of your instruments, you may have problems relaxing or leaving it with someone else, regardless of how well they come recommended.
