At some point in your life, you have probably considered entering into the music profession. When we all were younger, all of us wanted to be in a band at one time or another. There are still people in their sixties that would like to form a band with their friends as well. If the Rolling Stones can still be playing after 100 years, you might just have a chance. Below are a few careers that could get you started in the music field. If you are motivated enough and put that desire to good use, you have a good chance at succeeding.
Even if you don’t have a lot of musical talent with playing instruments well, there is always the chance that you could be a great songwriter. Maybe you have always achieved success with your writing ability in school and have since put it away on the back shelf. Perhaps it is time to try your hand with a local band and pen a few songs for them. If they go over well, start submitting them to bigger artists. You never know what will happen!
If you have always been a handyman with tools and could fix things without much of a problem, instrument repair might be right up your alley. There are a few instruments that can be difficult to fix for a newcomer, but then there are others that are much easier. Plus, you can always take a few classes down the road if you would like to learn more about instrument repair.
Any musician, from a rookie to a professional that is touring the world with millions of fans, could use a roadie. Whether this person is responsible for moving the instruments, setting up the stage, or even as a special effects operator, they are in demand. It can be a thankless job being the presence behind the scenes and never receiving the credit they deserve, but that is part of being a roadie. If you like to be on the road often and need time away from the family, then it could work out.
If you are interested in broadening your horizons in the music industry and have a good ear for music, it might be worth it to check out a few music production schools in Canada. Be sure to choose one that has a program that you are interested in enough to spend a career in.
