MUSIC SCHOOLS

Some people are not sure why they might attend a music school? After all, plenty of musicians (and non-musicians) develop music careers without the aid of attending a music college. The reason is simple: learn your craft quickly, and from experts. Also, surrounding yourself with others who have the same passions and goals as you do is powerful. It creates momentum. It secures your identity as someone who will have a music business career.

Getting the music school training you need can help launch your music career because it reduces the often inefficient time we spend trying to learn a skill on our own. For example, it’s much more efficient for many people to get an audio engineer job after they have attended a music school to learn the trade, than to find the job with little or no prior experience and training. In short, attending a school or college can really propel your career in music.
