What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

class a bit of decorum I can live with political incorrection in playing slightly out of tune or forgetting your words in the beginning but for people to enjoy your music leave all that behind.. and when it is your turn to play do your very best you can that's all we can do . no shouting instead of singing .no barking at your listeners . no swearing you want it to be a pleasant event for all. that wants to hear you play after all its not just about you its also more about them
