Hey everyone! I am a senior in high school and am doing the good ol college search Letme say first that i absolutely love music, but in all honesty i know my ear and creativity are not good enough to make it in the current hectic music industry as a bassist. I also figured if I'm smart (I had a 36 on the act), I might as well not let that go to waste and earn a decent living haha So in my search for a good balance, I found NYU and the major they call 'music business' at the Steinhardt college. This sounds like a great fit to me because of the intelligence requirement, music integration, and location in a big city. Just about everyone I've suggested this idea to has called me crazy and told me the music business is dead, I'd never get a job, etc etc So I come to you talkbass to hear youre feedback! Now I'm not looking for the same old "piracy means musics dead, give up now". Has anyone had themselves or friends look at this kind of program? (a few other schools offer it) How viable do you guys think this is and what kind of job might i be able to land with it and what kind of pay? I was thinking something with tours or artist relations/manegment, but I'm itching to hear as much feedback as possible! Cheers! Tl DR: How good of an idea is it to major in 'music business'?
