 Re: The worst advice EVER
Author: Philip Caron 
Date:   2018-08-15 19:03

Toward the end of my high school years, a guidance counselor advised me against attending music school, so I attended a technical college. After a year a family illness brought me home for a few years, and then the opportunity to study music appeared again, this time abroad. A close family member advised me to instead pursue the job I held at a local factory, and that's what I did. I pursued a career in the machine tool business for 40+ years, much of it as a software engineer, good at it and well-liked by my associates. I chose to follow the advice.

The advice to pursue or not pursue a musical career can have profound personal consequences. It must be hard for teachers and advisers to give.
