Music sounds bleak as far as a career. But as far as creative potential, the sky is the limit.

I’d tell young folks to focus on being creative and making great music. Work with other people to get your music promoted and to get in front of people. There are thousands of people who want to help exploit talent.

A composer will worry himself/herself to death worrying about money. Get other people to find your lifestyle while you create music you love.

Forget this “make music to help sell our product or promote our service” crap. If your music becomes important enough, you will have people coming to you to find your lifestyle while you create music you love.
