I want aspiring musicians to know that there is not one singular way to be a musician and that there is not one path to take to be a musician. You can create the career you want! And even if you don’t want music to be your career, you can still be a musician
Only pursue a life as a professional musician if you truly love making and/or playing music. When I was young, I tried to quit…many times. The only reason why I didn’t is because I couldn’t think of anything else to do that would make me happier. I guess that’s a good litmus test to see if it’s worth the effort.
