Hi there! It really depends on what every one of these things mean to you.
We have 3 things:
1. Music
2. Sports
3. Work

Work will occupy most of the time of your day. It will help you develop your career path. In the rest of your free time, you can develop other life-paths: your hobbies and interests.
Here, it depends on how you view music and sports.
If you are interested in music from a musician's point of view, you can try to schedule your time so that you have the possibility of writing lyrics or going to singing lessons, whatever you enjoy. You should do it if you think it really brings you joy and it makes you feel good.
If music is just a thing you enjoy as a "listener", you can incorporate it in your every-day life. Listen to it while working, while taking breaks or while doing sports :)
If you're in a sports team or going to contents, again, you can organize yourself, with discipline, in order to be able to train. If it's just a hobby from time to time, that's great too: you can go for jogs/play basketball or whatever you enjoy whenever you get some free time, or organize yourself so that you go, for instance, at least 3 times a week.

In conclusion, my advice would be to learn how to organise your free time and prioritise what you want to do. There are plenty of resources for this online, plus books on how to create habits and be productive. Try applying some techniques and see which one would work for you best!
Here are some books that I enjoyed:
📘 Atomic Habits: An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits & Break Bad Ones, by James Clear
📘 Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity, by David Allen
And some videos I found useful:
🤍 How to manage your time more effectively (according to machines) - Brian Christian

🤍 How to gain control of your free time | Laura Vanderkam

It is great that you don't want to drop what you enjoy doing: this is what makes life amazing! Hope this helped and don't hesitate if you have additional questions!

It really depends on how would manage your own time. What kind of career you would like? Since you like Music & Sports, would you like to develop in the career in these 2 areas.
There are plenty of career related to these 2 areas , e.g. Musician, Singer, Composer, Athlete, Journalist, etc. If you work in these industries, you can work in the industries you like.
On the other hand, in terms of work life balance, you can use some tools to help you manage your time, e.g. Google Calendar, Microsoft Outlook, etc. You can put down the major items in your schedule, e.g. the time you go to work or attend school. Then, you can identify your spare time. You can put your other activities that subject to your priority, e.g. play music, exercise, meeting friends, etc. You have to schedule enough time to rest as well.
Hope this helps! Good Luck!
