Hey, I rarely post here, but I was hoping maybe you guys could help me out. I've always, without a question, wanted to play drums for a living. I've been playing for 13 years, get lots of recognition, get asked to play for people all the time, and have been accepted into Berklee (except I can't afford it). So I figure I must be doing something right. I'm confident in my abilities to play in any situation. How realistic do you think it is to make a career out of playing drums (without teaching)? I'm only 20, so I do have a long life ahead of me(hopefully). Basically I'm juggling between moving to a bigger city and persuing drumming, or going to university for a different career (in which the drumming would obviously take a back seat). Any suggestions or insight on your part is much apprectiated. Thanks!
