I recently talked to a university music student about the entrance requirements for a music degree. After some research, I realise that in a year or 2, it may be possible for me to audition to study for a music degree.
Financing my living during the 4-year studies is a big issue, but that is something I will have to work out myself. My biggest concern is, is it worth it?
Having a passion for music is one thing, but at the end it still boils down to making a living.
There are a few majors I can choose from: performance, composition, music admin., teaching, musicology etc. What are the career options available for a music graduate besides the obvious performance and teaching?
Deciding to study music means a career switch from accountancy. Or is there a job market for someone with music and business background?
The bigger question is, is a music degree really necessary to get a career in the music industry? What other options do I have?
I have a year to think about this. I'd really appreciate it if someone who has gone through this to share your experience. Thanks.
p/s: I wish I was loaded with cash so $ wouldn't be an issue!
