No doubt people from music school can provide the quality musicianship - but whether you can make money playing quality music or reach a broad audience ...

Yes, we don't have that school of hard knocks any more. Still, that can bring a different, more introspective flavour to music but the big sellers seem to be mostly in the teen market.
