I'm currently in my first semester at Rutgers University, and I could really use some help decideding my career path. I want to do something related to music, but I don't want a job as a preforming musician. I'm considering teaching, but I was wondering if there was a way to get a job working closer with musicians that pays the bills. I was thinking about things like managing a band, producing, or anything at all in the recording industry where I will be working around music. Any ideas... and if so do you know what I should major in order to get that career?

Hmmm, if you were to manage a band you should definitley take some business classes, I'm not sure about producing though. You said you didn't want to perform, would that be including studio work?
Goodness gracious me!

Im going to college for recording. Its a tough career to get into, mostly because you either make no money or more money than you know what to do with. Im considering trying to be a elementary school music teacher.

You mean like a studio musician for hire? I would but my playing capabilities are not at that level and i don't think that's a very steady income. I think your right about the studying business thing, I'm taking an intro to business class this semester.

What college are you going to and Is recording a specific major at that college?
