I need some advice here,Im completing my last year of high school and have to decide where to go next.Is music school worth it?I have a passion for music,although I started playing bass a year ago but ive been a guitarist too for three years.I have a passion for music since a very long time,I live my life in terms of music,use it to escape stress,bad grades and daily problems.I was thinking of pursuing a career in music,maybe as a sound engineer.But the only thing im worried about is a secure future?

Ive seen audio engineers recording different bands and even guitar and bass techs too like billy howerdel.

Approximately how much do sound engineers earn? Can you make a living out of it working in a studio?

I think it would be difficult to do this in your country.

That said, I do believe a person should pursue their dream of life, their passion, if they wish to be happy in life.

Pat Collier started as a bassist, then put together a recording studio (in London) and made a good living renting out practice space, recording sessions, and working as a recording engineer. So your idea is possible, in London at least.

I would expect a career in music/recording to be entirely possible in Australia.

Arnold Schwarzenegger became a millionaire bodybuilder and American movie star and governor despite coming from Austria and having an almost impenetrable accent. If you want it badly enough, anything is possible.

Want it. Work for it. Get it.

You're so pissed that you could make a homophobic joke and alienate your fellow members!
