So I am not sure what misinformation you are correcting, other than the fact that he was probably being quite conservative.
Most musicians are training most of their life.
If you look into the greatest, they often started honing their skills at 4 to 6 years old.
I also didn't claim they would be $200,000 in debt.
But tuition, instrument costs, and starting a band do cost thousands of dollars, and there is NO guaranteed income at the end of it, unlike a career in medicine.
