Subj: Re: [kl] Majoring in Clarinet Performance
Date: Thu, 6 Jun 2002 02:27:21 -0400

Hi Annie, or anyone else on the list whose had major clarinet
training(studies), Do you ever regret majoring in clarinet performance?
I'm a music/business major freshman in college. I've been told that I
could become a very good musician, but I've also been told I could be a very
good businessman. I love playing clarinet and will continue to do so
throughout the rest of my life. Having a career as a symphony player would
be a very rewarding "job". That's something that I was shooting for before I
added business as a double major (the business world interests me as well).
It's unfortunate that I feel like I would never "make it". The possiblities
of finding a such a gig are very difficult; the competition is stiff. But,
something in the back of my mind tells me that I might, if I really try. So,
I battle constantly between majoring in clarinet performance or in business
administration. Did some of you on the list have mixed feelings pursuing the
clarinet instead of another interest that might make you more money? Do you
regret, perhaps spending money/time on that education? What made you make up
your mind? Thank you all!
