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.
Then be a doctor. I never claimed it was bad to be a doctor. Doctors at least the USA end up being quite wealthy even with all the debt. But it's not a slum dunk either. Medical schools are selective, and you have to work your ass off to get into one. It's not a given even if you manage to successfully survive pre-med (and that's an accomplishment in its own right). Nothing in life is easy bro. Unless you are born into money, you gotta work f**king hard for it. In any industry.
