I got into Carleton College on ED which I know isn't really a music school. I never even though about majoring in music until recently. I was dead set on being a pre-med student.
I really like playing music. I play drums and bass guitar. I played bass guitar in my middle school band and jazz band in 9th grade but after that I couldn't make room for it in my schedule. I know how to read music for bass and i can kinda read music for drums. I have talent on the drums really. I've only been playing a kit for about a year but I can already do things some of my friends can't who have been playing for years. How hard is it to major in music?
And also, what is the job market? If I majored in music, I figure i'd give private lessons at a music store. How much could I make from doing that and how hard would it be to find a job doing that? I don't expect to make millions obviously, but I want to be able to live comfortably in a modest home at least.
