School’s over for another year. No. Wait. School’s over, and this was my last year! I have now completed my Bachelors Degree In what? you ask? Piano Performance.
- Teach piano.
- Work as a collaborative pianist.
But do I want to do any of these? No. I think I may go insane teaching piano day in and day out, so I may teach a few students on the side, but not as a full job. Will I perform? It’s fun, but it takes a lot of hard work, dedication, and the biggest part is, luck, being at the right place at the right time, having the right person hear you play and then get you gigs. Also, I really don’t have the dedication to practice the 8-10 hours a day to be a top performer. This leaves one option left. Collaborative pianist, the world of the collaborative pianist is growing rapidly right now, but again, I’m not sure I have the dedication to learn and practice all that music.
So, why did I do my degree?? Well, after high school, I didn’t know what to study, I loved music, and thought why not continue with piano? I had completed a few diplomas, and the next level I could move on to was a bachelors degree. So off I went. 3 years into it, I began to think more about my career options, and realized that music was not what I wanted to be in, however, I had gone far enough, that I decided to stick it out and complete it.
That is now completed, and can now get on with life, which brings me great excitement
