Is Music A Good Career Choice?

We get it. The days of high-flying record execs are (mostly) gone. It’s a lot harder for artists to make money from streaming than it was with physical music products like vinyl and CDs. Like most industries, the music business is constantly evolving. That means there’s a lot of room for independent artists to find financial success and for career music professionals to grow in the industry and create new sources of income.

So, if music is your passion and makes you happier than anything else you could do in the world, then yes, music is a good career choice.

That said, knowledge is power. It’s important to know about the education and skills required for careers in the music industry, the salary and work lifestyle you can expect, and how to get a foot in the door.

That’s why we’re here. As the most comprehensive educational site about music careers on the web, (careersinmusic.com) you can rely on our experts’ opinions and advice on what working in the music business is really like. Check us out!

In Washington, there are two different applications for financial aid, but you only need to file one:

File the WASFA (Washington Application for State Financial Aid) if you are not eligible to complete the FAFSA due to immigration status. Click Here

You do not need to know whether or where you plan to go to school or what programs you might be interested in to file for financial aid.
