Life Beyond Music: Musical Hobby to Musical Career

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Your back is going to hurt one day, and crashing the floor of an apartment in Asheville isn’t going to cut it. Pizza will not be the most desirable of breakfast foods. Our panelists know this; they’ve been there, and have helped musicians sail the industry’s “Sea of Simply Surviving”. Turning your musical hobby into a musical career can be risky, exciting, and full of opportunity. Discuss how an increase in income, responsibility and recognition will affect your relationships, money and art. It’s a tough career, but it's possible.
