hey pit I'm getting to the point where the future is coming at me fast. I'm almost in grade 11 and it's the main year where we pick are courses that effect where we can go in life. I want to do something musical, but I'm not sure what could be a good paying lifetime job in music. I don't mean a band, i realize that's a rare job opportunity, but I'm just not sure. I can write really good songs, and my friends say I'm really good with lyrics and beats, but i can't learn theory or how to read notes. It just bores me in class and I can never focus which ended up with me not being able to read standard notes, and i barely know any music history. so does the pit know any good jobs in music that would be good?

The first step to looking for a job in the music industry is spelling future correct.

wow, can all of you calm down? i think we noticed he spelled future wrong after the first guy pointed it out. i didn't need the four others...

and to TS, i don't really know many careers that are in music to tell you the truth, but i say you should do what you really enjoy doing. I'd rather be making ok money doing something i love than a lot of money doing something i hate. overall, go with your gut

Nah, Dime was born in August and died in December.

For the topic, we can't really tell you. There are thousands of jobs that are available in the music industry besides being the dude on stage. Engineering, editing, producing, etc.

Actually, it was twice...and I'm not Jesus, but you may call me that if you wish

on topic though...I assume there's some kind of job that doesn't involve theory...there's probably some kind of counselor in your school you can talk to about it

Question : Are you looking for a job that requires Grammar/Spelling above the 4th grade level?
#22
By the beard of Rothgar quit ragging on the kid.

Hey if you want to find a professional job in the industry, you should check out Musicians Institute. There are so many options there. Don't worry about student loans. They'll get paid off in the long run. I know that's where I'm going.

Well, heres my experience, im 17, left school, left college and currently doing nothing. However I'm looking for work and should be starting a film making course in September.


I left school due to it being useless and underfunded.


I left college because it was 2 hours away, classes were cancelled at the last minute and i didnt feel it was benefiting me.


Whatever I do with my life it will be musically related, lucky for me I love films so composing for films would be awesome. This however would have never occured to me 4 months ago.


Plans never go to plan and too many people have faith in the education system. Do what you feel is right, and be happy.


That 2nd part is extremely important.

Hmmm... Don't be so quick to say that.

Be careful about student loans. They are a bitch if you don't know what you are doing.

Oh yeah, and if guitar hero got you into the guitar? you're really playing for the wrong reasons.

there is no wrong reason to play a guitar, except for world enslavement and extermination of certain races, but those guys never make it big anyway.
