Are my grades worth it?

Tags: grades  worth  

I've gotten straight A's all throughout my years. I'm gonna be a senior next year. I've taken mostly AP and advanced classes. I've worked my *** off getting these grades, but I want to know if all the hard work was worth it. I'm in

If music was like other professions, it would make sense to quit school and work hard on being successful. But it simply doesn t work that way unless you re *extremely* lucky. The odds of becoming the next Ed Sheeran are probably less than winning the Megabucks lottery. There are literally millions of talented singer/songwriter/guitarists who you ve never heard of. Unfortunately, success is more a matter of luck and who you know. There are some strategies to slightly improve your chances, but you seriously should have a backup plan. That s where school comes in......

Your grades are worth it in the respect that they will help open doors to opportunities you wouldn t have otherwise had. You always hear about the value of a college diploma, but there is something even more valuable about going to college...especially a good one. The people you meet and connections you make will help you afterwards. Whether you pursue a musical career or something else, jobs and opportunities arise from who you know.

The smart thing to do is to hedge your bet. Go to a college that has a good music and music production program in addition to whatever your normal career path is. Take a minor in music. Remember...many of your classmates will enter the music industry after school...and you ll know them. Remember: it s all about who you know.

In your spare time at school, you can form a band or do solo gigs around campus and in town. Maybe you ll get lucky and be discovered. Maybe you ll end up in a more secure profession, and play music part-time. I m not telling you to forget your dream, I m just saying that you can do both if you work smart.....and with your grades, you certainly are.

very few musicians make a decent living. try meditation or other relaxation techniques. your local library should have books and information.

Finish high school and then take a year or two to find yourself. Don't pressure yourself to go to college right away. Get a minimum wage job and work on your music. Don't trust just anyone to be your manager. Do some research and make sure they are legitimate. Try uploading covers and original songs to youtube. I see a lot of young people beginning music careers that way. Most of all, give yourself a break! You're only young once. Don't waste it by worrying your life away.

If you can't apply yourself in the real world, you'll fail life, which is worse.

School is like the "kiddie pool" to life. Its only purpose is to get your feet wet. Out in the big boy pool, it's sink or swim. Some people sink, some people swim and some people barely keep themselves afloat.
