I am constantly trying to find a career route to follow but are always unsatisfied.

The problem is there isn't much Art or Music careers I know about.

I really want to do something with music because it's my passion, or art because I really don't mind that at all.

Also I'm wondering what is the career in those areas that has a big salary, not hat concerned but yeah.

I have no idea what I want to do

Also I'm in year 10 atm but I want to know what I want to do so I know what subjects to do etc. All I know that I want to do atm is I want to study music at university.

Learn Logic Pro or Pro Tools and go for Music Production and Editing.
I doubt I'll ever have the skills to be a professional musician, but music is my passion.

This thread proves Gigatiran is awesome, and a lot more awesome than your average awesome. I bet he even owns a duster like Dennis Reynolds.

+ 1 for this guys idea.
although, I can't ensure how needed they're needed anymore. Allot of people are doing home recording and whatnot. You could rent out a place, sound proof some rooms and start your own recording studio for a couple grand. Although I wouldn't recomend rent, 'cause then you'd have to tear everything up once you move on.

Learn every little note and riff in the Guitar Hero songbook and play at middle school dances and high school proms.

You'll cash in big.

Hell, you might not even need to play guitar. Just bring whatever system they play it on and a big screen, two bucks a round.

go to school in arts, design, or music, or theatre,

like most careers, get some education, it'll help you narrow down what you want, and help you connect with the right people to do what you want.

if you want music, get in to school for sure, a good music school can open up a lot of doors.
