I wish my mom was that strict back when I decided on a career based off of music education just because guitar hero was the **** at the time

I've played guitar for 7 years now, bass for the last 2, and currently play bass in a band. I would really like to continue making music in college (high school senior right now, in last semester) but i realize that there's so little chance of making a career out of it. It sucks because I've devoted a ******** of time into music, but it's most likely not going to help me at all. That being said, my band has a really rough (like 24 grit sandpaper rough) demo up on bandcamp, and if you guys would listen to it that would be nice. strangeways561.bandcamp.com/album/first-draft-demo

i think there needs to be more people that don't grow up that create art or music or speak inspirational words. more so not get jaded, still have that rebellious attitude or believe that you can change things and are willing to fight to make the world a better place. kids have a wonderment that is rivaled by none. the world is all new to them and their imaginations are tremendous. teenagers while 						****					 heads have this "						****					 YOU" attitude where they will do what they want and don't like being treated unfairly, big middle finger to authority.   
   
and it's the truly great musicians that hold on to alot of those childish feelings and never grow up. of course there is a point where they do but the good ones seem to transition by having the whole old wise and gritty man thing going on (e.g. Johnny Cash).   
   
so i think musicians should hold on to that wonderment a bit, might help them be the next bob dylan or johhny cash (or -insert popular artist from music genre here-).   
   
however if you're an annyoing douchebag that carries around a guitar all the time and constantly 						*******					 plays it, even though no one asked you to, 						****					 you. there's a time and a place for all that and it's not in the middle of class when everyone chilling out doing their work. nor should you act like you're this great 						*******					 guitarist, show some god damn humility. and i swear to god (and i'm out of school at this point) if i ever here Iris by the Goo Goo dolls sung by you 						*******					 again i will kill you

To be honest, the fact that I want to be a musician has nothing to do with money. I've been playing saxophone for almost five years and it's one of the few things that makes me truly happy in life.
TL ;DR **** people that say you can't do anything with music. All I care about is doing what I love.

Bet your ass I'm gonna be a music major. Others can think what they like, but music is a lifestyle and I wanna make a living performing and writing it for others to enjoy. It's posts like these that make me realize how fortunate I am to have supportive friends and family.

I went to a music store and asked how much it would be for a lesson. (Learn a song) He replied with "$30 a lesson". I was shocked and politely said no thank you. I went home googled the guitar tab and learned it myself no problem.

($30 Really?)

To be honest, if I wanted to get a degree in music, I'd be worried about what sort of careers I could make out of it.

I love playing music, and getting a degree to further my knowledge seems awesome, I just don't know if I could live off of it.

theres more facets to going to music school than youd think. theres music producing and sound engineering, writing, publicity... its a very lucrative business aslong as youre good at it

I know the joke is that that's a childish dream, but this is what I though when I first read it. art is dead.

See, the trick is to get a job as an engineer or something, then when you start actually making money, go "HA, Fooled you, I'm actually a musician!"

Then lose your job and go broke.
