Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by breakn, Apr 10, 2002.

  1. i want to be a musician for career,bassist(accoustic) if i can..
    but im already 16 and itsnt too late to start a new instrument?
    and if i want to go to a college or university(music)
    where can i find some info about it...
  2. It's never too late, but there is a lot to learn. One great resource is this site. But don't forget your local musicians, local colleges, and your own band instructor.

    University is good(needed, in most cases), but depends on what style of music you want to excel at.
