Joshua’s Answer

Clarinet is not for me. I played one for a couple of years in high school before I found the instruments I like. Get a cheap keyboard and get lessons to get started. Learn about pitch, melody and harmony. Learn basic theory. Find some chords you like and start singing over them. Work on lyrics first, then use your parsimony to sing over them, before adding some riffs or runs. It's rocket science, but if you keep it simple it's learnable.

Joshua recommends the following next steps:

Play with other people in a band and learn together
Once you get good enough get a professional recording produced
Win a Grammy and make your parents proud
Thank you comment icon Clarinet is fun for me and i enjoy it! Sorry if your experience wasnt great but it doesnt mean it is a bad instrument! It was then just not for you! But thanks for trying to help...i might start with piano again or even guitar for the basics Niki

I am delighted you have a wide varieties of interest. Each of these can be a career itself. However, would you consider to be a performer, i.e. you can be singer and actress. There are many singers who also acts in movies as well, e.g. Lady Gaga, Madonna, etc. or vice versa. It depends on whether you likes music or acting more. In entertainment business, team work is a must. You can work with many people together in different projects.
You can explore the college that offering courses on performing arts. They usually offers a wide variety courses, e.g. Music, Drama, Dance, etc. You can find out which one you like most and the entry criteria.
On the other hand, if you are interested to develop your career in cooking, you can also explore the colleges which offering culinary arts. You can learn the knowledge and skills in cooking.
I suggest you could explore more the relevant careers and identify which one you would like tp pursue.
Hope this helps! Good Luck!

Hi Niki,

If you are not interested in pursuing music directly (like an orchestra), I would suggest that you consider becoming engaged in music in other fields, like education or medicine. Teaching music can be a challenging and rewarding experience. You would need to consider what you want to teach - there is teaching of direct instruments, but there is also music history. As to medicine, I was thinking about using music in music therapy. I certainly know that music can change my mind and often leaves me feeling better after listening to music that I love. I also know that the learning of something difficult (like a musical instrument) can be almost a form of meditation and help with focus and stress.

Both of the options that I mentioned require you to think about different ways that you want to use your music in conjunction with another skill - teaching or through health care. Your challenge is determining how you want to use your musical talent.

I hope that whatever you do, it continues to revolve around music.

Melvin’s Answer

I'm not sure if you've considered teaching music. Especially to children, since it's been my experience that learning music helps them perform well in other scholastic areas such as math.
