WHAT I PLAN TO DO AFTER SCHOOL?

#planning My plan after graduating high school will be to attempt a shot in college to learn more about music such as MIX AND MASTERING. Because as a artist i rather learn to do it myself than waiting on someone else to do it for me. #school

Thank you comment icon Hi Michael, this isn't exactly a question. Did you want advice around which schools to attend or how to pursue the music path? Gurpreet Lally, Admin

Hi Michael, what a great career plan! I happen to have a son who graduated with a degree in sound design technology and works for a sound mixing/production house. He also mixes his own music. Look for schools with a sound design program that is outside the school of music (unless you want to focus on playing an instrument or vocals). He went to DePaul in Chicago. Columbia College in Chicago is also great. Also look now at your local junior college for classes in sound mixing that you can take during high school. He loves his career - it's diverse and interesting!

Juan M’s Answer

Hello! It is great that you are thinking about the various ways to learn more about the music industry and how to pursue a career in the field. Confidence and taking initiative are the most important things required for one to reach one's goals and aspirations. There are many great universities and colleges that have great music schools. That is definitely a path to consider. It is suggested that you do your research and see which colleges offer that you want and how well connected the school is with the industry. What you learn in colleges goes way beyond just the skills you will need for your career. You learn life lessons, soft skills, hard skills, networking, professional & personal development, and so much more. Also, most music schools have talent scholarships that can help lower the overall cost.

Hello Michael!

That is great that you have a plan already, and looks to be somewhat of a passion as well? I'm not in the music industry but I would suggest reading some books on Mix and Mastering. While you're still in high school as well, maybe see if your local radio station has internships or volunteer work available-- this isn't specifically mix and mastering per se, but it will help you learn some technical things as well as get your name out there. After you graduate, look for a college that specializes in music (if you want), lots of schools offer scholarships as well so that's great!

Have fun!
