Some people are not sure why they might attend a music school? After all, plenty of musicians (and non-musicians) develop careers in music without the aid of attending a music college. The reason is simple: learn your craft quickly, and learn it from experts. Surrounding yourself with others who have the same passions and goals as you is powerful. It creates momentum. It secures your identity as someone who will have a music business career.
Getting the training you need can help launch your 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 start a career as an audio engineer after they have attended a music school to learn the trade. Few want to hire a person who does not know what they’re doing! In short, attending a school or college can really propel your career in music and get you on the right track.
