Hey TBers, So heres a major dilemma for me at the moment. I'm a junior in high school, and I'm in that phase in the college process where I need to start considering what I want to study, and thereby which schools I want to look at. Obviously, playing jazz bass is my passion. I've been in a number of jazz groups since 8th grade, and its essentially all that I do. However, I've been told by innumerable other musicians that while studying/majoring in jazz performance is fun, is a hugely unreliable field, financially. You never know what your income will be next month. I'm sort of into biology and stuff as well, though I dont have a passion for it, nor am I particularly talented at it. Besides music, it is probably the second choice for me. My head is telling me to go with biology and medicine, because I'll have a safer job and future (if i make it through college!) but my heart is pulling me towards music. My family, being German and very logic-orientated, would hate for me to go into music, but its still definitely an option for me. Can you help me decide or at least offer some insight? This has been tearing me up for months now! Thanks, Brian.
